    "Good book, but I didn't like the voice"

    I've read this book before, but hearing it read by this particular reader did not add to my enjoyment. He sounds like he's reading a 3rd grader a bedtime story. But this is not that type of book - it's very spiritual, and I expected a different tone. Not dramatized, not preachy, but not contrived to inspire wonder either. The voice should drop at the end of important points, and there are many in this book. The reader's suspension of his voice in the upper registers without bringing closure to each sentence makes it campy to me. This of course is just my opinion, having already imagined a tone for the book. First-timers might not feel this way about this version.

    "Good message/bad story"

    I would categorize this book as a self help type listen. A friend of mine highly recommended I order it because of the philosphy of the writer. The story itself was very poorly written and amaturish. The writer would tell a story and then explain the point, as though you are a child. The philosphy itself was eye-opening and very helpful to me. If you are interested to know his philosphy and you are in the mood to extract this from this listen, it would be worth your while to order.

    "A favorite1"

    I have listened to this book several times. It has been an inspiration to me repeatedly. The audio version of this book means even more to me than the writen version. I don't know why, but it does. It is an all time great book!

    "What a load of tripe..."

    Very poorly written and pretty hokey in general. New age muck mixed up with some self help postive thinking glop and you get this.
    I agree with the other reviewer that I wanted to go to sleep listening to the reader.
    I can't believe the author felt it necessary to write a "Concise Guide", unless to make a few more bucks off this mush.
    Goofy and unbelievable as a novel, even less as a philosophy.

    "insiring"

    This book only fills you with hope.It is the only book that I reread with as much pleasure each time and new details become clear.I first read this book nearly twelve years ago. The power of the book insired me to name my daugher 'Celestine'Every body should read it and realise how much our actions effect others. I hope that you get as much pleasure as I did.

    "Inspiring"

    This is one of the most inspiring books I have ever come across, this is a spiritual fictional thriller that offers fast paced action as well as amazing insights in to how the world could be. This story is based around a manucsript that was written thousands of years ago by the Mayans in Peru and in it they have predicted how the world and humans will develop spiritually in the 20th and 21st Centuries, it is a really lovely story and always makes me smile when I think about it. It will give you hope that the world may find peace and harmony at some stage!

    "Great adventure recording quality needs improving"

    Gripping adventure interesting concepts, it sets the imagination off running with the characters. I really love stories that pull you in right from the beginning the narration was very well done but had an annoying pinging noise in the background I have spread the word although a few friends have preferred to buy the book. Great listening once sound quality has been corrected.

    "A thought provoking book"

    Although I had been asked to read the Celestine Prophecy for many years, the book has always eluded me, for one reason or another. Although I do remember initially starting to read a paper back version, but gave up, as I sometimes I think these type of books to read can be a little intense and can have you back tracking more often then not! A friend who had recently returned from Peru and had been on a similar journey of insights and lesson in life. I felt compelled to read this book again. Having discovered audible.co.uk I thought maybe I might grasp the story of the Celestine Prophecy more easily if I listened to it rather then attempt to read it again.. This was my first audio book which I downloaded with reasonable ease and listened with great interest. This time I finished it! and understood it - amazing!!! The narration was varied and kept my interest. I would recommend this book especially in audio format and look forward to listening to the insights. A thought provoking book!
