After listening to Ender's Game I was ecstatic to get my hands on this. I was disappointed. The story is interesting, the narration ok (when I'm awake). The problem is I keep falling asleep during this thing. Not so with Ender's Game. I was always dying to get back to it. Listening at my house, in the car, whenever possible. This one, I've started to put on as a sleep aid. I've had it for months and am still not finished. Seriously, I'm usually asleep in less than 5 minutes . . . and I used to call myself an insomniac. It may be a good read, but I wouldn't classify it as a top listen.
This is a terrific read for someone who is into both Buddhism and science and it's excellently read by Richard Gere.
This is a great book. It's probably not for beginners, but if you're serious about Buddhism, you'll definitely want to read this. Note the word READ. The narration of this book is TERRIBLE. Do you self a favor and pick up the old-fashioned paper copy.
