"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 (along with both my daughters) have read this book and I lovvvvve this book. I have recommended it to all my friends and family. I just had to have the audio version. You will love this book it's one you keep or give as a gift.
What an inspiring book. The reader is amazing, the many voices he does inmerses you in the book. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to listen to a great story.
Jeremy Irons voice is SO soothing to listen too.
I really enjoyed this and I usually only read non-fiction.
This is a must read for everyone. It teaches us about dreams and goals; and, the significance of sticking to your path. I wish someone would have shared this with me when I was a young man.
This book is a must listen. No matter what are looking for, this will help. If you are looking for a good fable, it is that. If you are looking for a spiritual book, it is that. Just relax and listen. Don't over analyze. Before you even realize, it would have made a difference.
I Like scifi-fantasy, non-fiction, historical fiction genres. Liked Wot, Got, Pillars of Earth, Century trilogy. Last read: Maritan. luvd it
This is a very good listen. The story is good and it kept me hooked throughout, so did the narration. My only complaint was that it was short or maybe it was me.
