    Khalil Gibran's classic story of the advice given the people of Orphalese upon the departure of their beloved teacher. As poignant and delightful a listen as ever, certain to inspire your higher self.

    If you could sum up The Prophet in three words, what would they be?

    The Last Prophet


    What other book might you compare The Prophet to and why?

    I would compare this book to The New Testament, but it is a modern version based on faith, love, and friendship.


    What about Michael A. Smith’s performance did you like?

    Mr. Smiths performance was not a distraction.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    A very good book.

    No, there is nothing to learn from this book.

    Toure narrated his own book, and did not detract from it.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Toure's book is typical of the "Me Generation," it's all about them.
