I would have never thought a novel about a monk and a church could be so engaging. I usually prefer action and adventure or even science fiction, but this one puts you in the book as a bystander. Very compelling writer. I think no matter who you are, you will love this!
If you want to get an idea where this country is headed, you've got to listen to this. So many puzzle pieces about the political big hitters and policies just fall right into place.. This is not aimed at a particular political party.
I'm only half way through, and am planning a 2nd listen so I can understand more of the intricacies of the monetary world.
Please inform yourself in the name of humanity.
I would really like this book. I thought it was fairly well done, but my problem is that I really like this country and do not believe the Muslim extremists are all fluffy good and we are the big bad wolf. Too bad the author lets his political views blast through like he did in this book. It made for a tough listen at times.
Being a pragmatic business person, I don't really know why I picked this one out, but it will be part of me for the rest of my life. The love, the journey and the rewards are written and spoken in such a way that tears at the heart.
The parents and their love for their son is something to be cherished. Life lessons for us all. Excellent listen.
I was expecting something like Da Vinci Code, but I wasn't expecting the same plot and characters with different names. Written while watching television, I think. I can listen to just about anything, but could not finish this one.
