I was very excited about an imaginative story with an element of supernatural suspense. The book was a big dissappointment to me. It marginally held my interest until near the end when it seemed clear it had devolved into a pointless story of hyper-infatuation between the two main characters. I stopped listening right at the end just from sheer disinterest.
I've now listened three times. I've learned a remarkable lot about myself in relation to my job and who I am. This is a great book filled with deep insights. If you are dissatisfied about your job and perhaps complaining about the shortcomings of your employer, this book may open up a whole new dimension to what is going on in you. It is one of the most profound spiritual teachings that I have ever had the good fortune to experience. I'm journaling about what I've learned about myself. Palmer guides us to be honest about ourselves in order that we may begin to find freedom from our boogie-men. The narator is great too.
My next book will be "A Case for God" by Karen Armstrong. For people like myself, who believe in God, but do not believe that being a Christian is about having to believe a dozen things I can't believe before breakfast every the morning, "Letters from a Skeptic" was a complete turn-off. I do believe in God, and like the author's father, I have a great many questions. I thought the author came off as patronizing and presumptuous. Instead of addressing these very difficult questions in any thoughtful fashion, his arguments for Christianity centered primarily around the facuality of events in the Bible. At least he did concede that one does not have to take the "talking snake" as a literal event to be a Christian.
