Excellent narration but should be easier to search
What did you like best about this story?
The Bible is a well known story. What impressed me most was the dramatic narration. Voices are well chosen. Background music & sound effects are good as well.
What three words best describe the narrator’s performance?
Excellent, appropriate, dramatic
Any additional comments?
Understandably, this audio book is downloaded in several parts. It is very disappointing that you cannot tell which section you are about to hear until you start playing. Since the Bible is not just one book but a compilation of books, each section should be appropriately labelled so the listener can select which book of the Bible they want to hear. Since each section contains more than one books or a only a part of a book, the chapters should state clearly which chapter of what book is being played; for example, ' Amos chapter 2'; then when the reading moves to another book in the same section, ' Obadiah Chapter 1 etc. People do not usually read the Bible from beginning to end so it is important that the listener is able to go to a particular chapter of the particular book they want to hear. It would be great if they could go to an actual verse if this would not detract from the audio quality which is excellent. Even if the listener wanted to listen to this audio Bible from beginning to end sequentially it would be a challenge as each section has exactly the same cover. One would have to do a thorough search to find the section one was listening to before. I realize if you select list by title the different sections are listed in order but one cannot tell what books of the Bible are in each section as mentioned earlier. I certainly hope later versions of this Audio Bible will make improvements in this area. This version has the potential to be an excellent audio book.

Books as Chapters issue solved!
Would you consider the audio edition of NIV Audio Bible (Dramatized) to be better than the print version?
no. both handle different applications. This is a silly question!
Any additional comments?
A provided PDF clearly maps each book of the Bible to the corresponding Audible audiobook 'Part' so browsing to a specific book of the Bible is manageable. Glad to see this is handled; first NIV version I've seen to handle the Audible 'Parts' separation issues.
