Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I would recommend if they just wanted to listen to some short stories. I am not sure what the author wanted me to learn but the stories were good.
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
All of the stories were enjoyable.
What does James Webb bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
He does a great job with his narration. He pauses where needed and makes the listening experience pleasant. He has honed the skill of reading an authors words so they are not disjointed with pauses where they should not be as some narrators do.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
There was not one in particular.
Any additional comments?
I started listening with one purpose in mind but soon lost that purpose and just enjoyed the short stories.

This audio book was interesting, but different. I enjoy reading and listening to books that are about the Bible and this one didn't disappoint me. The stories gave me a little more understanding of parts of the Bible. Since James Webb narrated as well as wrote the book, I thought that he gave the audio version more meaning than another narrator would. His voice was smooth and easy to listen to.
I was given a copy of the audio book in exchange for an unbiased and honest review.
What made the experience of listening to The Listening Book the most enjoyable?
It's so refreshing to have a Christian writer who, like Lewis, Bunyan and Christ before him, chooses to tell an intriguing and compelling story for reflection, rather than strangling truth by spelling it all out.
James' Webb's own honest self-awareness and humble understanding of God and His kingdom, and of people, make these stories really worth listening to.
Any additional comments?
Our whole family enjoyed listening to this audio book. My 12 year old said, "It is very good, how he's written them. I like all of them, but my special favourite was the one about Jesus and Death". My 10 year old was able to remember details of the stories months later, and his comment was, "Fabulous! I absolutely loved it!". My 7 year old's response was, "I like how he made them into great, interesting stories. In some ways it could be harder to understand, except he's made it easy to understand! I also like the names he gives the characters, like "Misfit", "World", etc". My husband's response was, "For those who have ears to hear..."
Listening to the Listening Book allowed my mind to piece together the stories told. I admittedly love hearing James telling stories, and the way he speaks demands attention.
