This buy was a shot in the dark. Never heard of Victor or this book. My expectations were very low. But I needed to motivate myself as I could not bring myself to practising my guitar. So I gave this one a try and Lord ... whata a find. I love how the words are backed by music in the background (although I find Mike's performance irritatingly overacted) and I can't get enough of the content. Music as mystery and invisible mighty force. No phony stuff and cheap superficial spiritualism (at least to my mind). That's what you will find there.
I liked very much the Power of Now. This one is really a needless repetition. Eckhart, why would you want to double charge us? My advice: Skip this one, stick with the original.
I liked the book very much. It was clever and kept me drawn in most of the time. The only thing that disturbed me was the description of the erotic scenes. Not that I would mind erotica. Its just that they were free of subtleness and intimacy, just lust and sweat. Quite disgusting really. In my opinion it just did not match with the rest of the story, full of longing and doomed future.
The contents may be fine, but the quality of sound is a disgrace. I would not dare to offer this for sale.
Ten stars would not be enough. Peter Denis is unsurpassable in delivery of this beautiful witty book which is by no means only for children. For me, it was always its sweet philosophical melancholy that has been drawing me in. The wise fool Pooh. Adorable character worth to be followed.
I liked it very much. Being attracted by history and religion, this one satisfied my tastes entirely. I liked the temperate presentation free of ecstatic exigency. I am not a Christian myself and I am definitely not a fan of religious organizations of whatever religious denomination. This book is about the core values and that is why I am releasing five stars.
Sorry folks, I am gonna be the black sheep. I didn't like it. I didn't like Brave Heart either. I had to quit half way through being tired of the phoney masculin note. I suffered particularly when the "Gladiator" was quoted. I do not believe this is true picture of a man. My opinion: too wild too superficial. Can a life frustration by solved by a purchase of a motorbike or engaging in adrenalin sports? Is that what this book is suggesting?
So far the best audio book I have heard. Unlike some other readers I enjoyed most the part before shipwreck, full of pleasing insight. The end is also a highlight though.
