    Story
    (102)

    The orphaned Francis Marion Tarwater and his cousin, Rayber, defy the prophecy of their dead uncle - that Tarwater will become a prophet and will baptize Rayber's young son, Bishop. A series of struggles ensue, as Tarwater fights an internal battle against his innate faith and the voices calling him to be a prophet, while Rayber tries to draw Tarwater into a more “reasonable” modern world. Both wrestle with the legacy of their dead relatives and lay claim to Bishop's soul.

    What did you like best about The Violent Bear It Away? What did you like least?

    The story telling was quite good but the story itself was more complicated or more symbolic than my attention span allowed me to follow while listening.


    If you’ve listened to books by Flannery O’ Connor before, how does this one compare?

    This was the first book by Flannery O'Connor that I have listened to. I have not read any of Flannery O'Connor's work.


    Which character – as performed by Mark Bramhall – was your favorite?

    None of the characters qualified as "favorites." The description and performance of each made them equally problematic to like.


    Was The Violent Bear It Away worth the listening time?

    Undecided.

    Internationally renowned psychiatrist, Viktor E. Frankl, endured years of unspeakable horror in Nazi death camps. During, and partly because of his suffering, Dr. Frankl developed a revolutionary approach to psychotherapy known as logotherapy. At the core of his theory is the belief that man's primary motivational force is his search for meaning.
