Reading Black

Black by Ted Dekker

An incredible story of evil and rescue, betrayal and love, and a terrorist's threat unlike anything the human race has ever known. A virulent evil has been unleashed upon the people of earth. The only man who can stop it is Thomas Hunter, an unlikely hero whose life is stretched between two worlds. Every time he falls asleep in one reality, he awakens in the other. Soon Thomas no longer knows which reality is real. Yet it quickly becomes apparent that his choices in each world impact the other-and that the fate of both rests in his hands.
(This synopsis hardly does the story justice, in my opinion.)

Ted Dekker wrote 3 books in the original Circle series. He has written two other complete series (3 and 4 book sets) whose stories and characters intertwine and follow the same theme throughout-good vs. evil and man's free will to choose.

Black is the first book in the Circle series followed by Red and White (the most amazing stories I've ever read). I am reading the part when Thomas, who up until now is a man of little faith, encounters Elyon (God) for the first time.

(I apologize for the slight buzz... and the part where I bang my leg into the desk trying to reposition myself in my chair.) :o)


Thanks to Robin for listing all of the readers on her blog!

It won't work! I'm desperate! Natalie said you have a beautiful voice!

Natalie said...

You do have a beautiful voice. I really enjoyed hearing you.

Thanks, Natalie. I say with my faded southern drawl. I should've talked to my mom in Oklahoma first and then recorded it. You'd get a kick out of that. It comes right back just like when I was little.

Kiersten, I have it as a wav. file if I can even send a file that big in email. I know I can send it through skype but not sure about my regular mail.

Never Settle said...

Ok, it was a .wma instead, but it was small enough to email. Let me know if you can hear it.

It's working now! I'm gonna save it for when my kids aren't swarming me ; )

You have a lovely voice, AND you're good at reading! Nice expression, and very good pacing! I'm so glad you got this to work. So fun!

Never Settle said...

Thanks. I don't think I'll do audio books for a living, though. ;)

Hi!

I apologize for taking so long to come over and listen to your reading! It's beautifully done - you have a good reading voice, crisp and honest.

Never Settle said...

Thanks, Robin. I meant to put a link to your blog in the post. Sorry I forgot. If my computer stays up today, I'll add it. Glad you stopped by!

Hmmm. I am trying to figure out how to do this too... only problem is - I have this as an audible book...so nothing to read from... hmmm.

Kiersten said...

NS, my dear, where are you? Did your computer fail?

We miss you ; )

Natalie said...

I was just checking in. It's been so long since I heard from you! I miss ya!

Hope everything is going well, whatever you may be doing:)
