Tim Curry does a great job with this classic. Narrations can be so hit or miss, but he nails it.
Enough people have written about the story, which I loved, so I thought I would make this about the narrator. Being old enough to know of Bronson Pinchot from his start in Beverly Hills Cop and Perfect Strangers I was very hesitant to give this a try. But since I had just finished Monster Hunters and loved it so much I couldn't pass it up any longer.
I loved Bronson's performance and have a greater respect for him than I did before. Being able to identify all the characters without hearing "Sullivan said, Francis said" all the time was a relief. This was a true performance and not just another flat reading of a great story. The emotions of the characters could be felt, even when there weren't supposed to be any as in Sullivan's case most of the time.
I will gladly pick up any of his future performances without hesitation.
I really enjoyed this book. The story moved at a steady pace keeping me interested from beginning to end. The characters are well thought out and behave as you would think normal people would in their position, much more believable than other stories of the same genre. You will not be disappointed.
There was way too much info about the discovery of other medical drugs and their history. Kind of a "they called them crazy too" defense when I doubt anybody purchasing this book needed convincing in the first place. Time would have been better used by adding more technique.
This was my first book that I listened to by Dr. Dyer and I enjoyed it. No matter what people use as references ( Buddha, Jesus, etc. ) it is the message underneath that matters. I really enjoyed his message and I am very glad that I purchased this audio-book.
The subject matter is excellent and it will at least give you some insight into the process, but it is very vague. The parts with Hew Len are also really good but there just aren't enough of them. JV is a salesman at heart who charges the full price for a book but really just delivers a great infomercial for the multitude of other programs he sells on the subject. I am too afraid to buy the DVD seminars because I think they will turn out to be infomercials for the book. If you can get it under $5.00 it is worth the listen, otherwise check out other sources for Ho'oponopono information.
