I have already listened to CWG3 several times. Asner and Burstyn (both as s/he Deity) give nuanced, subtle reads full of love, humor and insight. Who cares if it's God's writing or Walsch? As is stated over and over again, if it makes sense and helps you lead a better life...who cares?
I refuse to choose - Asner and Burstyn are both remarkable.
The narrators, wonderful actors both, bring an INVESTMENT to the material that doesn't HAMMER it at you...but it obviously deeply felt.
It did better than make me laugh or cry...it made me think. Do I BELIEVE in The Gospel of Neale Donald Walsch chapter and verse? No. But that is exactly the book's message.
This is perhaps the tenth audiobook I have listened to start to finish. It and Book I (perhaps even MORE so in Book I) are FAR AND AWAY the best use of audiobooks I have encountered.
YES...I have already gifted it to several people. DON'T PUSH IT AT PEOPLE. The work and the performance wil speak for themselves.
Not the moments...the performances. Asner and Burstyn, both stellar performers, give subtle, nuanced reads. Walsch (as himself) does his best, and he's not bad, but he can't keep up with these two.
The very, very end.
BEST: Luntz's deeply intelligent, thoughtful commit ment to the use of LANGUAGE that strikes the LISTENER's ear most persuasively. Example: SHARED SACRIFICE = no way. WE'RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER = um...keep talking. Words matter a great deal. And picking the RIGHT words for your target audience is crucial.
WORST: The performance is delivered as if it's a play-by-play for a bootball game tied in the fourth quarter! Rapid-fire shrillness has made me turn it off and go back to the print MANY times.
Never got there
Needs a later edition - alas, much of what is covered is ancient political history.
