Soon to be a major motion picture, End of the Spear brilliantly chronicles the continuing story that first captured the world's attention in the best-selling book, Through Gates of Splendor.

"His voice is authentic and humble, and his story will undoubtedly inspire many." (Publishers Weekly)
Clearly the narrator was directed to hold a high speed pace and it detracts from the content. It made me wonder if they were trying to save money by using less time to tell the story.
The majority of today's narrators are fantastic and contribute to the experience. This book is an exception and it may be more the director's fault than the narrator. A good narrator sounds like he/she is telling a story, this narrator sounds like he is speed reading to get through it faster.
Did not like the narration. The story has it's high points but there is a condescending tone in not just the writing but the narration as well. I constantly turned up and down my Ipod because of the dynamics of the narrator.
An event at the end of the book was touching to me however. It "saved" the book for me.
