Yes, Jeremy Iron's narration is sublime. The story itself being a fable comes to life when told to you. I would consider this the definitive version of The Alchemist.
The pacing was just outstanding. Never preachy or slow the story just flows.
Every scene is outstanding.
Santiago is a perfectly realized character.
A perfect audiobook, it's as simple as that.
The book an an amazing tale of a boy following his dream. It is wonderfully narrated by Jeremy Irons. There is absolutely no way one could not enjoy the story or the recording in my opinion. Terrific work and terrific presentation!
The Alchemist is a wonderful story that you can listen to over and over again no matter where you are on you life's journey. ...and Jeremy Irons tells it well.
I love books.
I already loved this story after reading it years ago. Jeremy Irons narrates this story absolutely perfectly, and hearing it read aloud made it even better for me. It is not very long, but I would highly recommend this to nearly everyone.
I have read the book many times in the past and never thought I could catch the energy of the book on audio. Well, I could not have been more wrong! Jeremy Irons simply sings the story and transports you through word by word. I have listen to it now more than I have read it before. It is simply magical!
The narrator's voice lulled me to sleep in a couple of places but the story was interesting enough to keep me awake through most of the book.
I first heard this version about 4 years ago, and have listened to it many times since. It is a such a wonderful tale and Jeremy Irons voice makes it all the more wonderful. Enjoy!
this has inspired me to continue in my journey to realize my dream and to find myself in a journey of knowing myself...it has inspired me to hold on my goals and dreams amidst all the opposition, trials and challenges. great book especially that the reader is able to tell the story well with his great voice. its like you're watching a movie within your mind when you listen to this.
its really the joy of listening to audiobooks..i just hope audiobooks get a little cheaper...
