I enjoyed listening to this story. The narrator was good and of course Dickens tells stories well. I felt like I was back in time.
There is a homosexual love relationship. I suspected for a little bit which way it was heading, but got part way through the story before I found out for sure. I did not finish. I would have never bothered. What a waste of my time. I found nothing mentioned in the description or the reviews. To each his own, but I would prefer not.
First, I would recommend going straight to learning Mindfulness Meditation. Jon Kabat-Zinn is a good source. If your interested in learning more detail about how it helps you, then you may refer to this book or "The Willpower Instinct" by Kelly McGonigal Ph.D. I actually wish I had listened to the latter first or instead (depending on how much you want to study this area). Siegel narrated himself and has a grovelly voice. I managed to get past it once I settled into listening. There is a lot of good information in here. I disagree with the reviewer about there being too many patient stories. They were helpful in relating to my life, even if it was just sometimes bit and pieces. There was also a reviewer that said Siegel didn't explain how to do or use mindsight. I just think that reviewer needs to listen again for the parts she missed. It helped me understand various mindsets and how the mindfulness can be helpful.
I enjoyed listening to this book. Easy to listen to, great voice. I especially liked the parts about the old neighborhood, but it's all good. If only more people would read or listen to this.
