The Prophet is Gibran???s masterpiece, a wonderful blending of timeless wisdom with beautiful poetry. I???ve read the book and have heard other audio versions, but this recording by the late Paul Sparer is without equal.
This might have been a very interesting book if Krakauer stayed with the story of Pat Tillman, a truly unique and inspiring individual. Unfortunately however, Krakauer exploits his legacy as an opportunity to numb the reader with a 13-hour anti-republican rant. So far removed from the early brilliance of Krakauer's "Into Thin Air," this was a serious disappointment. Save your audible credits for something entertaining or enlightening.
