    Originally published in German as Wandlungen und Symbole der Libido, this is the book that set Carl Jung on his independent path as a psychoanalytic theorist and explorer of the mysterious world of the unconscious mind of the individual and the mythological mind of humanity. He bases his work on an exploration of Miss Frank Miller's Quelques Faits d'Imagination Creatrice, demonstrating complex connections between Miller's self-portrait of her own dreams and fantasies and the world of myth, symbol, and religion.

    What did you like best about Psychology of the Unconscious? What did you like least?

    Read this book many years ago - had hoped to revisit via Audible, but found the performer's reading to be very tedious.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    n/a


    What didn’t you like about Robert Bethune’s performance?

    Nasal, high-pitched, and emotionally flat. Reminded me of some college lectures where I was turning to people in class pleading with them to 'shoot me now'.


    Was Psychology of the Unconscious worth the listening time?

    Did not finish it...


    Any additional comments?

    Would love to see other title from Jung's Collected Works on Audible, but obviously with a different performer.

  • The Caine Mutiny

    Having inspired a classic film and Broadway play, The Caine Mutiny is Herman Wouk's boldly dramatic, brilliantly entertaining novel of life—and mutiny—on a Navy warship in the Pacific theater. It was immediately embraced upon its original publication as one of the first serious works of American fiction to grapple with the moral complexities and the human consequences of the Second World War. In the intervening half century, this gripping story has become a perennial favorite, selling millions throughout the world, and claiming the Pulitzer Prize for fiction.

    Would you listen to The Caine Mutiny again? Why?

    Perhaps 10 - 20 years from now - the story is very good, but once is enough.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Caine Mutiny?

    I enjoyed the author's handling of the growth of the young main character, and particularly the letter to him from his father received after the father's death...very fine.


    What does Kevin Pariseau bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    A good reader adds much to a good book - listening is now my favorite way of reading books. This performer was very good, handling all the characters in a believable way.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Very hard to put down (turn off) - a fine book that pulls the reader (listener) in.
