I've heard about this book for quite some time and finally decided to read (listen to) it. I've heard how life changing it has been for some and how insightful it was.
It was good, but not life changing for me. The insightful portions were insights I already knew.
I would still recommend it. Worth the listen and the read.
The story is sweet and insightful, especially at the end. However, given this narration, I probably would've done better reading it rather than listening. I was distracted by what sounded to me like effortful attempts at different voices. Perhaps other will love that part. I obviously can't know what the narrator was thinking during recording, but to me it felt like he was paying more attention to how he sounded than to the meaning of the words or the intent of the story.
Jeremy Iron's narration is the best yet in over 90 audible purchases.
Follow your heart. That is where the real treasure lies.
Favorite line from the book, paraphrased...when you are truly seeking your personal legend, your dreams, all of the Universe conspires to help you achieve it.
I read this book many years ago and had since forgot much of its message. This time, I chose to listen to it. It was performed great! I know this will be one of those books that you re-read throughout life and find a different message each time.
Great gift for a young person finding their way in this world or for anyone struggling with life's challenges.
