    Story
    "Every family should read (or listen to) this!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I not only would recommend this to a friend, I'm planning to buy several copies as Christmas gifts! Every family, especially those with young children, should own this book, and read (or listen to) it several times a year.


    What does Andy Andrews bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love Mr. Andrews' voices for all the characters, but after listening to the audio version I decided to borrow it from the library in order to read it as well, and realized his emphasis in some areas was different than mine - which brought more meaning to the passages. Of course an author is going to know how he or she means for a particular scene to be interpreted, and listening to the author narrate the story makes a huge difference.

    Story
    "The Traveler's Gift"
    What made the experience of listening to The Traveler's Gift the most enjoyable?

    I really enjoyed the story line of the book. It is very positive and uplifting. I like the idea of using historical characters to establish common sense thinking. It is always encouraging to see writers communicating strong moral conviction in a practical way.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Traveler's Gift?

    I enjoyed the thinking involved in the conversation with Harry Truman the most. Making a decision to drop the atomic bomb is fascinating and feeling like you were a fly on the wall listening to his thoughts was really eye opening.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Andy Andrews’s performances?

    I am afraid that I would not be able to listen to Andy Andrews read any other books. As much as I loved the book, Andy was really hard for me to listen to reading. I only finished listening to the book because I had promised a friend. I did enjoy the book, but felt like I would have enjoyed it more, if I had just taken the time to actually read the book.

    "Great Points, Okay Story"
    If you could sum up The Traveler's Gift in three words, what would they be?

    See Headline above.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Expected and predictable.


    Any additional comments?

    I thought the core, overall point(s), of the book was very good and applicable to life. It is very easy to listen to and understand. The story itself feels a little contrived at times, and Mr. Andrews narration took a little getting used to at the beginning.

    "Wonderful Story - I highly recommend"
    If you could sum up The Traveler's Gift in three words, what would they be?

    inspiring, motivational, reflective


    What other book might you compare The Traveler's Gift to and why?

    I can't name one book so I will have to say motivational self help books.


    Which character – as performed by Andy Andrews – was your favorite?

    All of the short stories were wlll done and opened my mind to new possibilities that I realize I had been closed-minded about before.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from The Traveler's Gift?

    I sure think it is a great idea to reflect on the thoughts and negative beliefs I have had in the past and be more openminded.


    Any additional comments?

    I plan on relistening to this audio again and again as I am sure there will be new insights each time.
