Disclaimer: this is being written by an avid Nevil Shute fan. That being said, this is Shute at his best. If you've never heard of him, or only read A Town Like Alice, then give this one a try. You just might be fortunate enough to become a Nevil Shute fan too!! The reader is also excellent.
This is a very good book that focuses on understanding and developing a humble spirit. It is well written and contains depth of insight. The reader does a great job at presenting in a quiet, gentle manner that adds to the listening experience.
I have read through my paper copy of this incredible little book many times. Unfortunately, Scott Brick is totally the wrong reader for this title. It requires a humble, gentle presentation, and these are not Brick's qualities (at least not when he reads). My advice is to buy the book and read it yourself.
The story starts with a somewhat intriguing premise, but doesn't do much with it. There are many better Dr Who stories. You can safely skip this one.
The Power of One is a good, solid story that keeps the reader involved. The reader is excellent. I will note a couple of caveats, depending on your viewpoint: there is lots of vulgarity, especially in the early going, and the Christian faith is presented in a blatantly mocking and demeaning light. There is a lot to like here, but these were definitely negatives for me.
This is an excellent book for anyone who wants to become deeper and more purposeful in their prayer time. The performance by Simon Vance is very strong.
I really enjoyed this story, but it's not for everyone. If you like fun, quirky SCI-FI adventure tales then you'll probably like this one quite a lot. If you like deep, involved plots with heavy social overtones then Emperor Mollusk won't be to your taste.
This very old book contains depth of insight that eludes most modern writers. The reader does an excellent job of translating the content to audio. I would strongly encourage people to give this a listen.
This is an excellent little book, well worth taking the time to listen. Although short in length it is packed with wisdom, well read, and challenging. Keller's focus is on developing a healthy sense of self by taking our focus off ourselves, freedom in self-forgetfulness.
