    As Tony follows his own path toward adulthood, he relies on the wisdom of Ultima, a magical healer, to forge his unique identity. With hundreds of thousands of copies in print, Bless Me, Ultima has been called the most widely read Mexican-American novel in the English language. Richly evocative, it has earned its place among the classics of modern literature, even drawing favorable comparisons to Herman Melville's legendary Moby Dick.

    Clodhopper says: "Mysticism, Catholicism, Naturalism"

    Where does Bless Me, Ultima rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's probably on the top two.


    What other book might you compare Bless Me, Ultima to and why?

    Anything, having to do with culture and understanding of human differences.


    What about Robert Ramirez’s performance did you like?

    He was Okay. A bit slow and drug out at times.


    If you could take any character from Bless Me, Ultima out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    That's easy! La Ultima of course. She is the heart and soul of the Mexican culture.


    Any additional comments?

    I love my audible books!!

    When Randy Pausch, a computer science professor at Carnegie Mellon, was asked to give such a lecture, he didn't have to imagine it as his last, since he had recently been diagnosed with terminal cancer. But the lecture he gave - "Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams" - wasn't about dying. It was about the importance of overcoming obstacles, of enabling the dreams of others, of seizing every moment (because "time is all you have... and you may find one day that you have less than you think").

    "Awesome inspriational book a must buy!!"
