    From one of our most interesting literary figures, former editor of Granta, former fiction editor at The New Yorker, acclaimed author of Among the Thugs, a sharp, funny, exuberant, close-up account of his headlong plunge into the life of a professional cook.

    John says: "Poor reader"
    "Great story and listen!"
    Overall

    I highly recommend seeing the Bill Buford interview about the book on "Charlie Rose".
    Mr. Buford is a very interesting and engaging personality. I had no prior interest in cooking or chefs but after that interview, I had download this book to learn about his adventure in becoming a chef. It is fascinating and I think he does a very nice job in reading his book. About half way through the book, I just had to go out and have a gourmet Italian dinner!

    A brilliant man's philosophy on love, marriage, joy and sorrow, time, friendship, and much more. Originally published in 1923 and translated into more than 20 languages.

    James says: "The best book ever...."
    "Fantastic book, horrible audiobook version"
    Overall

    The previous reviewer is exactly right. The audiobook of "The Prophet" read by Paul Sparer is beautifully done, really a religious experience, as befits this wonderful book. From the sample here, this audiobook has no feeling and almost sounds like a computer-generated voice. Don't let it ruin "The Prophet" for you, skip it.
