"The story has the comic charm, dramatic tension and psychological intensity of a fairy tale, but it's full of specific wisdom as well, about becoming self-empowered, overcoming depression, and believing in dreams." (Publishers Weekly)
"Yareli Arizmendi spins this marvelous tale of exotic adventure....[He] makes us feel the pain and joy of Santiago, the poor shepherd boy, as he tries to decide whether to seek a larger fortune or stay in the security of his job. Exuding softness and pathos, the narrator reminds that us most people who are unhappy failed to follow their dreams when young." [AudioFile]
I loved everything about this book. What beautiful words. I will recommend to everyone and rated this a 5 because the performance was enticing. I could listen to it over and over again...and plan to.
I love this book! The narrator was great. The voice change of character and in that accent, kept me engaged. I visited a few chapter more than twice to take notes, quotes and journal about what was being conveyed. I feel like this a book that should be read and then re-read years later. Great Fable!
