Let's go get yet another cup of coffee, shall we?

What did you like best about The First Apostle? What did you like least?

The history, the richly described locations ,and the performance all were greatly appreciated.

The relatively predictable plot line, some of the characters were just brushstrokes, and the incessant references to going for coffee. My gawd, these people do nothing but drink coffee .


If you’ve listened to books by James Becker before, how does this one compare?

My first foray into James Becker, and not bad. Certainly has the content I appreciate, but the stories do have a formula to them. On balance, if you like these sorts of historical/bibilcal thrillers, I would recommend.


What does Graeme Malcolm bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

His accents and inflections are genuine, and he does paint a wonderful wordpicture.


Could you see The First Apostle being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

It would be on the SyFy channel, and no one of note.


Any additional comments?

Not bad. Not brilliant, but a good distraction. Recommended.

Cryptic Clues and the Catholic Church, too

The Vatican is once again that powerful organization that squashes the truth. This story of following ancient clues, murders, the mafia and smart people determined to find the truth is a good one. The narrator was an interesting choice. I've listened to him in a number of books, and his semi sing song style of narration is okay. I don't know if I'll listen to this again, but I enjoyed it the first time around.
