I generally devour all audible books and even like poorly narrated ones (to put me to sleep at night).
After 500 or so downloads, I finally found a book I hate! This went beyond bad narration. Bad writing, no character development, extremely wacked-out plot premise, unrealistic character reactions. Way out there... and way bad. Good thing it was free.
I thought this utterly awful and immature book was made worse by its narrator, who whined the dialog. A ridiculous waste of computer space. Even at free it wasn't worth the download or my listening time. I gave it the one star only because a rating is forced. It doesn't count ... the book deserves no star.
i have agonised for the first hour and a half and was wondering if it was all me, i am glad to see i am not the only one who is finding this hard to swallow. I know the topic is not an easy one. I am actually wishing it all ends........soon
Did you know that suppressed emotion causes cancer, or causes it to spread? Me neither. The author evidently believes so.
I tried to stick it out, but about three-quarters in, when the author got into blather about the "three spiritual bodies" that inhabit a person's physical body -- and a dog's physical body -- I gave up on this book. Isn't the very term "spiritual body" oxymoronic?
The author is no doubt sincere in his beliefs. This reader doesn't care to be prosyletized about them.
I had this terrible experience once when I saw a movie, loved it, and then read the reviews. The reviews painted the flick as a flawed release on many fronts and rated it at something around 1.5 out of 5. I decided that when movies are concerned, people's opinions would only be valuable to me if I valued something about, or in, them that would make their opinion significant to me.
Well, same thing happened to me with this Scott Blum book, "Summer's Path." I was surprised at the negative reviews written here, which I saw when I came back to order the sequel, "Waiting for Autumn." I thoroughly enjoyed "Summer's Path." I found it insightfully intriguing! If one is willing to read/listen with an open mind--which by the way is the only kind of mind that permits growth--wonder and pensive introspection may be their reward.
Keep in mind, however, I hold myself out as no intellectual. I am but a battered and bruised recovering know-it-all, learning to enjoy, without my own old stuffy filters, all that this beautiful world has to offer.
I am so looking forward to "Waiting for Autumn." Thank you, Scott.
although the storyline was interesting, the book was not altogether cohesive, over explaining certain elements and glossing over others. the narration; however, was abysmal. it made it very difficult to sit through the book and I found myself trying to not mock the narrator's delivery. painful.
the story ends somewhat abruptly as well. and although I may be curious to see where the story heads in the series, there is no way I will buy it as an audio book if the same narrator delivers the story.
Avid listener, teacher of English as a foreign language in Mexico City. Very interested in recommendations.
It only got my attention at the very end.
The narrator really needs to work on her reading aloud, she's a novice.
This book did inspire me: never to listen to a bad book again. From now on, an audiobook will have to grab my attention in the first chapter and have a narrator who can at least pronounce basic words. Her voice was shrill and bland, as other reviewers have mentioned, especially when raised, and every time she said "farmiliar"--"familiar" with an unnecessary "r"--I wanted to abandon the book. Too bad I didn't before it abandoned the reader, with an advertisement for the sequel and barely a pretense of an attempt at a credible ending to the first one--unless I was so bored by that time that I missed it.
"Terrible prose, terrible story."
This book is what happens when a Do-it-yourself / How to... author decides to write a book. The story is mystic cobblers and the prose is worse than a school kids effort. Terrible descriptions of places and characters written like an instruction booklet for idiots, this was the least rewarding book I've downloaded yet. It may be free, but it's still not worth it.
"It reminded me of 1980s daytime tv"
Let's get this straight - this is a FREE download so what we're asking is to evaluate if it's worth the time invested in listening. I guess the answer is "depends on how bored you are."
The first half of the story was OK and set up for potentially an interesting twist or two that sadly never came. When the recording was over, I felt it was unfinished, took the listener for granted and didn't really offer any hooks to make me want to follow the characters in their further adventures. The female characters were very flat and the male characters not much better. I'm really sorry to be so negative, but this just wasn't for me.
this particular book made you sit up and think not a book i would normally pick but it made me think perhaps i should look to other forms of litriture
"absolutely loved this story & the narrators voice"
I listen to this book while going to sleep now, such a good story and very well read.
"What a load of twaddle"
The blurb sounded like it might have been a good story, but it was in fact a non-starter
Diane Ray's performance was unsatisfactory. Emphasis was all wrong and lacked the right level of emotion. At times I wasn't sure which character she was reading for and I wondered occasionally if it was being read by a computer
The book is full of new-age instruction. The whole premise of the book seems to be to teach the listener about meditative practices and so forth. This should have been made clear from the outset. Instead we were fed the lie that this might be a good story...
An interesting-sounding premise. An "angel" approaches a terminal cancer victim and makes a deal. Do you believe this character or should you be suspicious? It could have been good and could have headed down any number of avenues, but turned out to be just fluff and nonsense. Nothing interesting here.
It's a nice story about moving on or working forgive. A new look on afterlife and rebirth.
"had potential but didn't use it"
got ridiculous towards the end. ..not rushing out to get the next part. introduced new ideas too far into story so as to suit the plot...as if the author was making it up as he went along
An OK book slow to start and finished to soon
Rushed book I feel that could be better
"first half ok"
first half could have been a good story but then it looks like author swallows a psychology text book and the style changes for the worse
Unconvincing, boring. Reads like a summary of somebodies idea of how cancer patients could be in control of their death. The resoning, thought processes and feelings seem unconvincing and mecanic. I cant belive the characters. The reading doesnt help at all. Nice diction, lovely voice but not quite convincing. I decided to listen to the end just to give it the full benefit of the doubt. I wrote similar stories as a teenager.
