Spend some quality time with a Biblical hero

A lovely new review for the audiobook edition of Rise to Power:

"Spend some quality time with a Biblical hero"
What made the experience of listening to Rise to Power the most enjoyable?
I loved listening to Rise of Power. The match of narrator to text was perfect for this wonderful book. The narrator got the nuances of the Biblical David precisely as one would most like to hear them. A reader can suspend disbelief and feel that David is telling his story.

What did you like best about this story?
This story delivers great insight into the life and time of David. The intimacy evoked by the combination of author and narrator weaves a potent spell. The tale took me to the Biblical world in all its color, danger, and grandeur.

What does David George bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
David George's narration is gritty and knowledgeable, smooth and yet prickly. He sounds as if he allows the characters to inhabit him and use his voice.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
David...the Untold Story.

"A tale of madmen and kings, youth and old age, prison cells and freedom's ring..."
