Publisher's Summary

Next to The Bible, The Pilgrim's Progress has probably been more widely read than any other book in the English language, and rightfully so. It is considered by most critics as the greatest allegory in any language. And to think that it was written by a jailed tinker who received very little formal education.

This is the enthralling account of a Christian's epic journey. With a burden on his back, Christian reads a book that tells him that the city in which he and his family dwell will be set ablaze. Christian flees from the City of Destruction and journeys through the Slough of Despond, the Interpreter's House, the House Beautiful, the Valley of Humiliation, the Valley of the Shadow of Death, Vanity Fair, Doubting Castle, and the Delectable Mountains, and finally reaches the Celestial City.

(P)1997 Blackstone Audiobooks; originally published in 1670, United Kingdom

    Story
    "Probably better to read the book"
    Any additional comments?

    I'm not really following the story because of the old style language. It also is sort of complicated. I think this is something that would be better to study than to listen to. It's probably just me.

    Story
    "Love this audiobook! Love this story above all!"
    If you could sum up The Pilgrim's Progress in three words, what would they be?

    Entertaining, Religous, Honest


    What did you like best about this story?

    Being a classic it has already made it's momentous mark, but it just hits home and represents our life and Jesus's plan, His love and His Saving Grace.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    No one favorite.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I would have liked to, but I also realized that almost 10 hours of audio was not something I could do.

    "Pilgrim Progress"

    This is the most inspiring book ever read. It will teach you how the Devil tries to discourage you in every way posible but Christ invites you to keep walking the read of faith. Highly recomemded for your spiritual life.

    "All time fave!"

    Pilgrims Progress is my all time favorite book, after the Bible. (There's a reason it's the 2nd best all time selling book, after the Bible.) It is an awesome book! And Blackstone's audiobook of it is my all-time favorite reading of Pilgrims Progress.

    "Need the hard copy"

    I could not get into to this book due to the 'old world' english. This is the first book that i could not listen to, and i have listened to over 70. After 15 mins I turned it off. Maybe if I had the time to sit down and listen to it but i listen to my audio on the go so I found this book too heavy for this stlye of listening. I have heard it is a great book but i think it is not a good book for audio.

    I focus on fiction, sci-fi, fantasy, science, history, politics and read a lot. I try to review everything I read.

    "REALLY not worth it!"

    OK - I just don't get what any non-zealot would see in this book. I choose this title because of the many good reviews I saw here and I thought, at very least, I would get an interesting historical perspective. This turned out to be a club-you-over-the-head allegory. C.S. Lewis does allegory - this is thinly veiled catechism. The rhyming was tedious, the person and place names were tedious, and the language was tedious. The only thought provoking this book did was my thinking why someone would rate this 5 stars. This does not describe the beauty and subtlety of religious faith and the real obstacles to faith, but instead a narrow, pompous, provincial, my-way-or-else view of Protestantism. Even from a historical prospective, I could not recommend this as worth the time.

    "Hope is a Choice!"

    Loved it...walking by faith. May my journey be as rewarding as the characters of hope.

    "Outstanding"

    What a thrill to finally know this story. At first, in part one, I thought that my natural impatience would not allow me to survive the long reading, but it was apparent that the pace was imperative to grasp the weightiness of what was happening and with the archaic language style. It was a joy.

    "interesting"

    very interesting facts but said nothing about the adventure on the high seas and was a little dry.
