Would you listen to The Cross and the Switchblade again? Why?
No. The reason for this is EXCLUSIVELY the narration quality. The quality of the sound recording is as if this is a computer read account. I know that there is a "real person" listed as the reader-but it is so robotic it's infuriating-to the point that I don't want to listen to it.
What other book might you compare The Cross and the Switchblade to and why?
The Hiding Place-Corrie TenBoom
How did the narrator detract from the book?
Completely-I would understand some of the sound quality issues if this were being streamed because the problems are as if your broad band was overloaded. The narration slows down and speeds up-changing the tonality of the voice-and sounds so choppy-"ev-e-ry-syll-a-ble-is-pro-nounc-ed". It's like ET is reading it. This can't be the narrator alone-this is a technical issue.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The whole account is an amazing testimony of the faithfulness of God when we believe.

This is what life is about. As followers of Christ this book is an example of what it means to be used by God.
A strong, calm performance by Raymond Todd offsets perfectly the wonderful story of the impact God made on the gangs of New York. In an age when global extremism threatens to take over from local gangs as filling the emptiness inside our young people, and drug culture remains prevelant, the lessons this book traces are more relevant than ever.
