I was caught up in the rhythm and language of this book from the first paragraph...In its original form. Too much is lost in the edited version. Oprah has a very rich voice, but I think the maturity and depth is wrong for this book. I hope Audible will post a different version when/if one is available.
This creativity series is great. I've written the creator to see if I can purchase the whole collection from her directly. I just purchased the "Rainforest" hypnosis CD from ITunes. I specifically purchased it from ITunes to avoid the jarring audible.com voice over tag that plays at the end of the recordings. I found that the ITunes version has an even longer and more jarring Audible.com message than the ones purchased directly on the Audible site.
I often listen to audio books to get to sleep and I can't tell you how many times that ending tag has jarred me awake. It's so frustrating.
It's especially frustrating when listening to a CD on meditation or hypnosis. The Audible.com ending is recorded in a shrill voice that's many octaves higher than the base recording.
I highly recommend Maggie's hypnosis recordings. I would love it, if Audible would stop including that jarring voice over tag at the end of all of its recordings.
