    The voice of Jessie (Annie_Chan) is alike Anna Paquin’s voice; only a bit softer.

    hey, I think I can make a sense out of this, the reason why they made an audiobook instead of a video is because it’ll spoil the AERITH”S DEATH scene in the REMAKE!!! so there might actually be a remake…

      I wish, be WE actually made this Audiobook, as far as the translation and Voice Acting. The story itself was released by S-E in one of the Ultimania Omega books quite some time ago. Essentially we’re doing audiobook versions of the official Final Fantasy VII Novellas.

    Very engaging. Proof of the power audio-only story telling has. The Theatre of the Mind remains more vivid than even the best 3D multi-channel stereo yet devised. Kudos to all involved.

    Thanks to Joseph Vitaliano for bringing this production to my attention.

    I think they should make more audio books about FF Series and most of all they should also make a movie about Crisis core , FF7, Before Crisis and FF13 which is my favorite.

    Thank you! I have always wanted to read the book, but couldn’t read Japanese. I would enjoy listening to this while studying. Also, I wanted to do an educational panel at a convention on Final Fantasy VII and wanted to read this so that I can understand Aerith’s story in the Lifestream, and this is what i needed!

    Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! This makes my day!

    Absolutely beautiful, wonderfully done, great voice acting (Sephiroth’s laugh made me freak out and Hojo’s madness was AWESOME), it got me so involved and oh my goodness. Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful.

    In one word word; amazing! The voice acting was fantastic and it really brought the whole story to life, as did the music. The whole thing was just pure epicness, and as I saw that the cursor was getting near the end I was sad beyond belief. Now I just wish that Square would let the guy who wrote this write a sequel to this or something that explains what Aeris was doing during the events of Advent Children.

    Considering that this is written by someone somewhat involved with Square it’s surprising that this hasn’t been included with ACC and isn’t considered canon but whatever.

    Anyway the voice acting paired with the music brought the original story to life and left me wanting more. I hope Square allows the guy to write another story about Aeris if he wants to, and in the unlikely event that something like that happens I hope you guys would do another audiobook for it. Keep stuff like this coming!

    This is Square Enix quality. You really couldnt tell this was done by the fans! Maybe you could just carry on the FF7 story line yourself and ignore all the rubbish SE will no doubt release in the future. Do the story line properly! lol

    A person essentially lend a hand to make critically articles I might state. That is the very first time I frequented your website page and to this point? I surprised with the research you made to create this particular post extraordinary. Excellent job!
