"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]
This is one of those few books that I could read again and again!! I just finished listening to it in Audible for the first time and Jeremy Irons was so beyond amazing at narrating that I found myself sitting through this all in one sitting!! I will definitely be listening to this again and again!! Well done, Jeremy Irons!!
It is very rare that I immediately get the urge to listen to a book a second time upon completion. This book is absolutely amazing. And strangely enough, I am not quite sure why. The interweaving of different levels of meanings and subtle messages is done beautifully and gives this book a graceful power that soothes and enriches the soul.
I love this story it's open my eyes to never give up. To stay focus on my journey and learn as you go but you have to trust the universe that everything will work out. Especially if you listen to your heart. I would recommend this book to any one.
