It is not enough to say that this is a GREAT story for it's depth, wisdom and beauty are so evident that each word of Hesse's award winning novel moved me into places that only a true master could so magically conjure. I loved the reader as well and felt that the entire production was perfect. Thanks audible for providing such a service.
The masterful way in which Hermann Hesse concluded his story. It was pure genius.
Too many to mention. But the story of how Knecht sacrificed himself was brilliantly conceived.
To me this book has been a favorite of mine for years and each time I read (and in this case listen) I am moved to new levels of just how vulnerable we are as humans and just how beautiful each of us plays out our unique role.
One of my all time favorites. Though I have read several of Hillman's books I had never fully appreciated the "man" Hillman was until I completed this beautifully written biography. I hated when I completed the audiobook, as it was as though Hillman was fully alive and present with me the entire time. This is a must listen to book if one is at all interested in the twists and turns of life and how these twists and turns help shape each day we live. For me Hillman was a true genius and should be required reading for anyone who wants to answer the question of "who am I".
I would compare this book to any GREAT biography that I have been moved by. I experience each life so individualistic that comparisons are difficult but I have read biographies of Freud, Jung, Gandhi, ML King, Meher Baba, Yogananda, T. Roosevelt, and many more and Hillman's is one of my favorites thus far.
I enjoyed his reading as it was neither too slow or too fast. A plesant voice with clear enunciation. I never tired of the sound of his reading.
My extreme reaction was that I thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it. Hillman was a truly fascinating man.
One of my favorites. Jung is a true mystic and scientist. His words are as relevant today as they were 80 years ago. This is a must for anyone interested in the state of Modern Man (and I absolutely mean everyone who is interested in TODAY)
I would suggest reading James Hillman a man of true insight.
I suggest that this book is worth listening to at least twice as it is so full of wisdom.
I enjoyed every minute of it. I listened to the book several times as it is not an easy book to comprehend in just one reading.
Tillich is deep and is worth spending a great deal of time investigating. This is a timeless piece of true psychological and philosophical thought.
His voice was pleasant and easy to listen to as I re-listened to the book several times.
Absolutely recommended. This is one of the clearest and best written books for the lay person. Excellent in all ways.
I loved Singer's description of the interior voice that haunts us all. I also loved his explanation of how to deal with the annoying voice.
This is a book that can be read by young and old. Something for everybody including all of you who think that you know everything already...
One of the deepest and yet very accessible books that I have ever heard. Since listening to it I have purchased the book and read it cover to cover. Superb.
Too many to mention. I believe each person who listens to this book will be moved and permanently changed.
He is very good. Reads quickly and clearly.
Loved the stories regarding Freud and Jung. Enlightening
A must read if you are interested in the core of our human being. This book absolutely deserved the Pulitzer Prize.
I loved the concept. The author's idea is excellent. To hear how the original Jesus might have sounded resonated deep within me.
No, I found his singing annoying after a while. Though I listened to the entire book because I felt he was deeply sincere about his message.
No, listen for yourself. Their is a lot to be learned here and it may resonate with another in a much more positive manner.
Awesome, Expanding and Remarkable
At the conclusion of the book the author wrote one of the best explanations of mankind's consciousness in relationship to all other potential forms of Being.
I believe that he made the story come alive and I found that his voice never bothered me.
No single moment stood out however, the expanded state that was created within me grew steadily as I absorbed the story. I was constantly being challenged to reset and potentially accept the ideas that the author presents in the book. I loved this experience and recommend it to all.
Just because the book was written over 70 years ago don't think that it is dated. I would suggest that everyone allow themselves the experience of looking into the immense possibilities that exist and enjoy removing the self limiting thoughts and beliefs.
