Ok... but there are better versions out there.

This book has a pronunciation guide in the back. The reader clearly did not know or use this. There are pauses and timing that makes it seem like James T Kirk is reading it - and that is NOT a good thing. It gets annoying quickly. I'd recommend listening to the samples out there and find a version you like before purchasing this one.

pronunciations are off

It is distracting that the narrator didn't take the time to learn how to pronounce names of many people and places mentioned in the Book of Mormon.

poor narration

narrator had apparently not pre-read the text, as pauses and breaks were not in the right places. Narrator also seems to be someone who is not familiar with scriptures. Wish they would have picked someone who was willing to put in the time or already had the ability to read scriptures smoothly, without awkward pausing. Maybe by the end of the book he'll be good at it??

The narrator is not familiar with this language

He mispronounces and fumbles over words frequently, and he pause in strange places and inflects weirdly.

A new and refreshing narration

Contrary to other reviews, I really enjoyed the narration of the book. I've read this book many times and have heard it narrated many times. I appreciated that his narration was not the familiar cultural fluency, it made words and ideas jump out that were usually camouflaged by sheer familiarity. How many times have I read and heard, "I Nephi, having been born of..." - by hearing it in a different cadence, tempo, and emphasis, it exposed a new angle and perspective to my understanding. I usually increase the speed on my audio books, but I really enjoyed 1.0 with this narrator

The narrator sounds either very bored or anti lds

This was difficult to listen to because the narration was so bad. Scripture isn't always easy when well read.

The Book of Mormon

Unhappy with this, because it hard to find different books and verses. It would be much better to read and listen. I wish to cancel.

It’s not consistent

Every time I chose a chapter it would start reading another chapter. For instance, I wanted chapter 5 but the subtitles say chapter 9. I don’t like this audible book. What can I do to delete it of fix it?
