To short...

All I can say is that is that it is to short, not enough details of the battle and the people involved.

Music too loud

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

It was difficult to hear, the background music was so loud I had a difficult time hearing the reader

Would you recommend Judah, the Maccabee to your friends? Why or why not?

Yes, if it were reread without the loud music

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator was fine

Do you think Judah, the Maccabee needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

I can't say, because I really was so disappointed and distracted.

Any additional comments?

I listened to it several times to try to hear it. Very poor presentation!
