This story was about the most boring story I ever encountered. Lelsley Mackie's narration was done so well, I just kept expecting the story to somehow come alive- somewhere. But it never did. The main characters were boring and the story line was lifeless.
I would recommend the book, but not this audio. There is a very distinct difference between reading a book aloud and narrating. Ms. Hogue was very disconnected from her material.
There was no "performance"- she seemed to just be reading the book for the first time.
Edgar Cayce's work is wondrous and I hope Audible seeks more of his material...hopefully with talented narrators.
This book by Kevin Todeschi is wonderful- and I have listed to the CD version, which is also amazing (narrated by Kevin himself). But the narrators chosen for all of the Edgar Cayce works that I have experienced from Audible, are horrible- and it is really so very sad- they are trying too hard to "read" the material and it ends up being mechanical. The quality of the work gets lost in the inexperience of the narrators, I am sorry to say. I sure hope Audible puts more of their experienced narrators on any future work...or maybe they could hire Mr. Todeschi! Title 5 stars, narration 1
