Beric The Briton by Heirloom Audio Productions {a TOS crew review}

Beric The Briton Heirloom Audio Productions  ReviewWho doesn’t love a good audio drama! WE DO!  WE DO!!  Audio drama’s are not your average “audio book”.  They are stories coming to life like the old radio show days of yore and we love them!!!  So we were totes excited to find out that we would get to review Beric The Briton by Heirloom Audio Productions as part of the TOS Review Crew.                                                  Beric the Briton is based on the book Beric the Briton by G.A. Henty.  We love Henty books and have always enjoyed hearing them put to audio theatrics!  Beric the Briton is the story of the Roman Invasion of Great Britain. You will quickly be drawn into Beric’s life as he and his best friend Bodouc, are kidnapped, retrained as gladiators, and finally out into the employment of Emperor Nero himself!!  Along the way you see the work of The Holy Spirit in their lives as they come to new realizations about themselves, their past and how that weighs into their future.
Beric the Briton is recommended for kids ages 6 to adult.  You will get 2 ½ hours of listening adventure between the 2 cd’s. I received the physical CD set as well as a few special bonuses that come with the purchase of the family four pack package. Included in the bonuses is:
Beric the Briton MP3 download
Beric the Briton E-Book by G.A. Henty
official MP3 soundtrack
printable cast poster
50 page study guide and discussion starter
inspirational verse poster with the quote, “I will gladly die for Him who died for me”
unlimited access to the Live the Adventure Letter e-newsletter
fun behind-the-scenes videos of the cast creating Beric the Briton
     These bonus’ were super cool to have.  I am not really much of a “print it” person and we don’t do books on devices (I know I know but we are old school like that).  I did look at all the bonus material and ooh and aww.  I also did do some of the study questions with my kids but mostly we listened and colored.  If you were to work this into your history program though, the study guide would be a great resource! 

     It took us about 3 weeks to listen to the whole story.  We were listening in about 20 min blocks of time as, well, time would allow.  The kids were told that they could either sit and listen quietly or draw/color as they listened.  No problems there! 
     The story was an instant hit!  It was adventurous and engaging!  After the first “airing” there were cries of injustice when I turned it off!  They could not wait until the next time we would gather to listen. 

The production was very realistic, captivating and top quality. This was A+ rate for sure!  No “B rating” at all!  Everything from the music to the actors was just….. wonderful!  We wanted to listen!
Beric the Briton was a wonderful story for the whole family.  Along with the topnotch production, it’s simply a good book!  The character quality of “dying to self and living for Christ” resounded throughout. You all really should pick this one up!
