    "Beautiful"

    The Prophet is Gibran???s masterpiece, a wonderful blending of timeless wisdom with beautiful poetry. I???ve read the book and have heard other audio versions, but this recording by the late Paul Sparer is without equal.

    "Prophetic prophet"

    I had a copy of this on cassete tape, loved to listen to it then and even more now, Ipod makes it so much easier to enjoy.. Inspiring to listen to in this format, as in its prior overly listened cassete format.. Enjoyed listening to it this morning at work before the day began.. Narrator, pleasant to hear,, and as always Khail Gibran a pleasure to visit again and again....

    "Timeless Wisdom"

    This needs to be listened to many times as you will hear something new with every listen. Almost allows you to step out of life and be an observer. Very powerful, very thought provoking, very beautiful.

    "Poetic book"

    I knew this book before so I was curious about it. English is not my mother tongue so some part was really challenging for me but I finally I enjoyed it a lot. Narrator is excellent and the wisdom from this book is eternal. Highly recommend.

    I loved this well delivered truth of Life... Moments of AWE were the feelings over and over again, throughout this whole book!

    This is a must read, especially if you are looking for clarity in life.
