    (265)

    This modern morality tale by gifted writer and speaker Andy Andrews teaches seven fundamental strategies for creating a successful life. Much like the best-selling books by Og Mandino, this unique narrative is a blend of entertaining fiction, allegory, and inspiration. Storyteller Andy Andrews gives a front-row seat for one man's journey of a lifetime. David Ponder has lost his job and the will to live.

    If you could sum up The Traveler's Gift in three words, what would they be?

    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Expected and predictable.


    Any additional comments?

    I thought the core, overall point(s), of the book was very good and applicable to life. It is very easy to listen to and understand. The story itself feels a little contrived at times, and Mr. Andrews narration took a little getting used to at the beginning.

    Story
    (5993)

    When their village is attacked by trollocs, monsters thought to be only legends, three young men, Rand, Matt, and Perrin, flee in the company of the Lady Moiraine, a sinister visitor of unsuspected powers. Thus begins an epic adventure set in a world of wonders and horror, where what was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow.

    What made the experience of listening to The Eye of the World the most enjoyable?

    The story and performance are incredible.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Eye of the World?

    Everything from The Ways on...


    What does Kate Reading and Michael Kramer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Kate Reading doesn't read as much of the book as Michael Kramer, but both bring a slightly different quality to the book. Based on other reviews, I'm looking forward to seeing how they bring different aspects of the story to life as the story progresses from book to book.

    I thought that Michael Kramer brought more to the experience in this book, but that may be because I was so used to his voice telling the story by the time Kate Reading's voice was introduced.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The wheel weaves as the wheel wills.


    Any additional comments?

    Not withstanding the buggy Audible app for Windows phone, the book itself was an incredible introduction into this genre for me. (Outside of Tolkien, of course). I was a little concerned at the beginning because the amount of detail that Robert Jordan goes into to describe everything almost caused me to put the book down. However, I decided to push through, and I am very glad I did, and after having finished the book, I'm actually appreciative of the amount of detail. The story is just rich! I'm looking forward to starting book 2 "The Great Hunt".
