1. The letter size is so tiny (Times Roman 6 or 7 points) that you need a reading glasses. My other bible bought at amazon was in giant letter size, 16 points. So obviously you should check the letter size first before placing an order.
2. In paperback form; the pages are easy to tear.
If you want to buy it for someone else like a convert, I would recommend a more *readable* and durable copy.
3. The delivery time was decent; the book condition was new as in seller's comments.
Only one: Price is reasonable.
The smallest print of any larger Bible that I have ever seen.
Print too small to read!
The old saying "You get what you pay for!" is so true. Why waste your money on a small print large Bible? Spend a couple more dollars for a larger print Bible.
Also, the main character is a bit inconsistent, sometimes appearing kind and loving, while other times wrathful and vengeful. This dichotomy could be an interesting plot device, but alas the book never goes into detail about why the disparity exists. We are simply left to wonder at it, or just figure "that's how it is". Frustrating.
The book does suffer a bit from uneven editing, as well. For instance, there's a fascinating tale about a golden bull statue, which is unaccountably buried in between two tedious and nearly identical descriptions of carpentry. What's the deal? I admit that editing such a large work can be trying, but surely such duplication should be easy to avoid!
Overall, though, it's not bad. I am rather disappointed that the publishers chose to bundle the inferior and hackneyed sequel with the groundbreaking and innovative original, however. Really, if the sequel can't stand on its own merits, why include it at all?
I confidently predict that this book will sell by the millions and become one of the immortal works of world literature. There is no questioning the calibre of the material, one could well call it epic.
I very much look forward to their next book.

It takes skill to bring out a book in instalments and maintain consistency. The number of different styles, themes and even contradictions in The Bible lead me to suspect this was... Read morePublished 20 months ago by Paul Burns
