Finding Silence in Audio!

Where does Holy Silence rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Wonderful. Powerful message and wonderful narration (although it is strange to listen to a book about silence... think about it!).

What did you like best about this story?

The Quietude Queries at the end.

Have you listened to any of Trevor Thompson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No. My first one. He does a great job. Such a wonderful bass voice with rich timbre.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I listened over a series of days while driving.

Any additional comments?

Great audiobook!
