I have READ Mr. Albom's three previous little books; I eagerly awaited this one to read. When it appeared on the Audible site, I decided to try to LISTEN, and glad I did.
His narration means, of course, that I get to hear what he wants me to hear, the nuances he wants me to experience. This is not an interpretation of a work by a reader/narrator - This is the book from the mouth of the writer. Wonderful.
To read the words of the Rabbi singing would not have in any way approached what I instantly got from Mr. Albom, in fact, doing some of the singing.
Incredible listening experience. Somewhere online (you can find it) are a number of interviews with the Rabbi, including his last message to his congregation. I only got there, I only heard them, as a result of this audio book that gave me the curiosity to seek it out.
