I have been eager to read this book after hearing so many wonderful things about it and seeing the great reviewer ratings for the book. It's also a topic that interests me.
Despite all of that, I had a very difficult time listening to the audio version of the book. It has a lot of background music and sound effects that I am sure are designed to peak interest in the storyline, but I found it to be horribly distracting. It was difficult enough to follow the stories of the different characters and the music and sound effects only made it more difficult to follow along. I would have much preferred to have just a narrator read the story.
I'm still eager to read the book someday, but the audio book version is not the optimal way to experience this story.

This abridged audio book was fantastic! I listened to it twice during my recent long road trip home from college. Not only did it have sound great music and sound effects, but the author also spoke with lively enthusiasm and in different voices for each of the characters. This Present Darkness has a sound Christian morale, is absolutely clean, and brings our thoughts to reflect on those things that are unseen. As a college student, I thought it was probably geared toward a bit younger audience and was definitely more imaginative than scary, but none of these took away from the enjoyment at all! The download was super easy, quick, and worked perfectly! I would definitely recommend this as a family classic or an auditory treat for anyone to enjoy :)
