If I were 20-30ish.
Made the story original.
So similar to other books. Liked the setting of Andalusia in southern Spain. Morocco, not so much.
I listened in one sitting because this audiobook is so engrossing and engaging! I traveled the desert and became the elements described. Philosophy, faith, romance, travel, and danger... Great listen!!
This work is like being lifted and carried of on a quest. You feel yourself being moved and moved upon. I find myself still planted where I was before reading this but I am not the me I once was.
This book is a metaphor for life. It takes you on a kind of journey that once you
start out you cannot help live it yourself.. It makes you believe all over again.
A shepherd learns the secret of listening to his heart and is well rewarded for following his dream. There is a lesson there. This is one of the most imaginative stories that I have ever heard. The author caused me to suspend reality almost without noticing it. The narrator is spot on.
