Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Simon Vance

Historical Fiction • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

This is a fleshed-out story of Samson that you won’t find in the Bible. Believing that he is a messenger of God, Samson slaughters and maims hundreds of the enemies of his people and sleeps with countless women as the body count rises. Delilah’s persistent attempts to get Samson to reveal the secret of his strength give an appreciation for why he eventually gives in to her wheedling. It is clear that Simon Vance becomes the character of Samson, with all his frailties, naïveté, and sharp observations of the world around him. This great performance has everything a listener could wish for—excellent tempo, believable voices, and a tone of conviction that makes one believe that the events and dialogue in the book are truly what took place.
