Reviews


(5 stars)

religion only brings out the goodness or wickedness that's already rooted in a man's heart (Rabbi Asher Meza). Hell & Heaven is here on Earth existing in the hearts of man, and brought into matter by the hands of the same.

Awful reader


(1 stars)

Don't bother listening to this, I lasted 60 seconds with the sonorous sounding, boring reader. The reader sounds drunk. Librivox STOP accepting poor quality readers.
