Editorial Reviews

In the theology of the Church of Latter-Day Saints, The Book of Mormon is the word of God which recounts "the history and God’s dealings with the people who lived in the Americas between approximately 600 BC and 400 AD". The origins of this holy book are fascinating: An angel supposedly told Joseph Smith, in 1827, where to find the buried golden plates that contained the ancient scripture.
On his website, Sean Crisden justly boasts that he has "the voice of reason". In this performance of The Book of Mormon, complete with helpful chapter numbers and verse notations, Crisden's voice is almost as smooth and authoritative as a true prophet's.

Publisher's Summary

Here is an audio edition of the sacred text of the Latter-Day Saint movement that followers believe contains the writings of ancient prophets who lived on the American continent from approximately 2200 B.C. to A.D. 421. A fascinating listen for religious scholars and denominational adherents alike.

Very poor production

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

Well except for all the time I spent listening to the author repeating the numbers of the chapter and verse.

What didn’t you like about Sean Criden’s performance?

Very flat. It would be a fantastic audio book if it had been done like a performance. But it sounded like a librarian reading a dictionary.

Do you think The Book of Mormon needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

I'd like to read the 2/3rds of the Golden Plates that were sealed, yes

Any additional comments?

I really hope you redo this. I would be enthralled if this was done without the verses and with a passionate perfomer narrating it. This was a disappointment.

couldn't be worse...

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

The scriptural reference is given for every chapter and every verse, with every verse. It's impossible to listen to and get anything from. What where they thinking? It's a total waste of a credit.

I'd love to have the book to listen to, but not with the references.

How could the performance have been better?

Delete the references with every verse!!!

A great listen

A very good book about the native Indians from north and South America and their religious beliefs.
