Having listened to it once and read it along, it is a tough book. But what is captivating for a novice reader like me is the number of styles that this book breaks into. That is unsettling and keeps you on the toes all the time. But that variety in styles is what is brilliant. It stretches you and your imagination. And norton is great! But I would strongly recommend one to keep a kindle copy as you listen to the book as there are too many complex words and it goes out of the English language often

The recording is crackled but the perhaps no Hindu philosopher can ever summarise what the Hindu way of thinking is about as he does in this lecture.

Captivating storytelling by Dan. This is in fact my first Christie and I was completely impressed partly due to the performance.

Having heard/ read it, I am beginning to understand why this is a masterpiece. Tolstoy's clarity of thought, and breadth of knowledge, is remarkable - philosopher and writer of a different level, to several of the writers of classics I have read until now. Neville Jason's story telling of this mammoth piece of work is controlled and exceptionally clear, making this the best Audible hear thus far of mine.

There is the book and then there is the narrator. Having listened to several audio books , I must congratulate james for a superb reading of a voluminous and often complex/instigating work in a very clear but emotive fashion.
The book in itself has several downs. But I think it does leave one marvelling at the persuasive powers of Adolf, single mindedness, and the ability to connect several dots ranging from world politics, evolution theories, economic theory and leadership, albeit to generate a contorted or crazed result. Glad I took the time out for this.

Loved the prose - disjointed but woven together - bringing to the fore the great art of story telling
The reading out was superb. It makes it more fun and to life than simple reading from the book.
Would definitely recommend to the anyone wanting to immerse themselves in the pleasure of English language than anything else. Kids of today's sms world should read this.
Of course, it is a bit of "all is well that ends well" type, quite predictable as a story.
