Anything written by Saki needs to be taken with a degree of "open-mindedness". This particular short story is not his absolute best, but definitely worth a listen. The performance was decent. It is a difficult task to add more than just narration to an audio performance and have it come across with the desired intention. If you are in the mood to listen to a short story with a shocking twist at the end, this little piece is perfect for you. If you enjoy Saki, I recommend his stories: Laura and Tobermory.
I can't recommend this book enough. I am worn out by the cop drama books because they are they are just the same old stories time and again. This particular book shocked me because it puts a brand new spin on that particular genre. The reason I downloaded this book was that I have yet to be disappointed by anything Muller has read, and I was pleased once again. The author jumps around a bit between characters making the book confusing at the start; just enjoy the ride. It will all make sense in the end, and you will love the style, I promise! Take a risk with this obscure author, you will not regret it!
Start with "The Power of Now" and then follow with this recording of a retreat he hosted. I have noticed comments about the man laughing in the background of the audio. I will admit that it is challenging to get past the distraction, but I would argue that it just drives Eckhart's point home even stronger, and if you were truly in the present while listening, it wouldn't bother you as much. Use it as a method to bring your focus even closer to what he is teaching, as well as a way to make yourself more "transparent" to the annoyances that occur in our everyday lives.
Such a wonderful book. Eckhart's voice is mesmerizing, as well as his message. If you are fervently searching for a way out of pain in your life, or you have just reached a point of spiritual wandering, The Power of Now will bring you into conscious being and stillness. A recommendation is to try this book with an open mind. Eckhart's message is valuable for atheists, Christians, and every religious belief in between.
