Yes I would. This is a wonderful book that intrigues curious readers like myself. Regardless of how many time you listen to it, it give this feeling of suspense, persuading you to listen more and watch the scenes in your mind. This is a perfectly written and narrated book.
The most memorable moments of this book are the scenes with the songs and their meaning. The song of evil, Family, etc..
Hector makes the story come to life. He reads in such a way that he paints a picture of all that occurs in the story. I must also give credit to John Steinbeck, who articulated such wonderful scenarios, of joy, hate, lust, love, fear, dream, envy, just to name a few. This well written book, along the with the inspiring vocals of Hector Elizondo, make The Pearl a wonderful audiobook.
Well to be honest, it made me a little sad at times, but mostly depressed. I must also point out that the books provide a sense of hope, willingness to strive for what you want. It give a perfect illustration of what determination is and how far people may go to achieve what they desire. Both in Kino's case, where he wishes to fulfill his dreams, regardless of the obstacles. As well as the thieves, whom, no matter what, will stop at nothing until the get the their hands on the great pearl.
