Nice book but......

It was a very good book contentwise but I wish it was narrated by Don Leslie, the impact would have been more and listening, enjoyable. After a couple of hours of some lifeless rantings of what would have been a beautiful insight into the life of St. Augustine, I stopped listening. Don did a marvelous job with Become Who You Were Born to Be by Brian Souza.

Audible needs to find a new versio....
