A Christian parable pitting God and religion against 20th-century materialism, The Power and the Glory is considered by many, including the author himself, to be Greene’s best work.

Hard to hear
What didn’t you like about Bernard Mayes’s performance?
I found this performance difficult to hear. I could not enjoy the story while straining to hear the words.
I like listening to audiobooks in the car, which is admittedly a poor acoustical environment. However, I can hear all the other audiobooks i have purchased. If you are listening to in a quiet place it might be fine, but for my purposes it was not functional.

Lousy recording quality of bad narration
What disappointed you about The Power and the Glory?
It was difficult to listen past the distortion of the recording and the awful voice of the narrator. Sounds like it was recorded in the 50's with a cheap microphone. Turning down all the bass and mid tones and turning up the high eq made it a little more bearable. Need to stop trusting audible and always preview the recording first....
What did you like best about this story?
The book itself is amazing have read it any times
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Bernard Mayes?
Anyone with a more human sounding voice. Mr. Mayes sounds like a dying frog.
