  • Autobiography of a Yogi

    When Autobiography of a Yogi first appeared in 1946, it was acclaimed as a landmark work in its field. The New York Times hailed it as "a rare account". Newsweek pronounced it "fascinating". The San Francisco Chronicle declared, "Yogananda presents a convincing case for yoga, and those who 'came to scoff' may remain 'to pray." Today it is still one of the most widely read and respected books ever published on the wisdom of the East.

    "uninspiring voice"
    Overall

    This is a great book... but unfortunately all the bliss disappears with the boring pretentious voice of Ben Kingsley. You would expect more reading skills of this professional actor.
    Better to read the book !

    Toru Okada is going through a difficult time. He is without a job, his cat has disappeared, and his wife is behaving strangely. Into this unbalanced world comes a variety of curious characters, a young girl sunbathing in a nearby garden; sisters who are very peculiar indeed; an old war veteran with a violent, disturbing story. Okada retreats to a deep well in a nearby house. And the story unfolds.

    Shelley says: "Bizarre"
    "Babyish voice of Mai Kasahar"
    Overall

    It's a great mystic story and full of wisdom! The narrator was actually quiet remarkable with his imitation of voices but he started to get a little over exited with the character of the 16 year old Mai Kasahara. His voice was so babyish and over the top that I had to skip these parts when "she" was talking....I guess I didn't miss too much because she suppose to be a little stupid but underlining it with a loud penetrating voice was quiet painful !

  • Before the Frost: A Kurt and Linda Wallander Novel

    • By Henning Mankell

    Story

    Just graduated from the police academy, Linda Wallander returns to Skane to join the police force, and she already shows all the hallmarks of her father - the maverick approach, the flaring temper. Before she even starts work she becomes embroiled in the case of her childhood friend, Anna, who has inexplicably disappeared.

    Anthony says: "Worst Narration Style EVER"
    "Cassandra Campbell sucks !"
    Overall

    The narrator Cassandra Campbell really ruins the character of Wallander with her voice. She turns him into a completely different person then the one i had know in all the other Mankell books I have read. She is completely insensitive when imitating male voices. It was very upsetting to listen to this misinterpretation.
