This reading was pathetic

Would you try another book from Herman Hesse and/or Victoria McGee?

I have never felt the need to write a review before, but this reading was completley lifeless. Not worth the $3.

Had to stop listening

Narrator sounds like a robot. I couldn't listen any longer. Do not buy this version!

Insight into life

Life as joy,life as mystery,life as suffering and the God's presence in every place is beautifully explained through a story.lt talks of Indian philosophy and Buddhist ideas.

The original hippy.

Best read on a beach - stoned - with someone else who - also stoned - wants to discuss life, the universe and everything. Buddhism is just as strange and plausible as most other religiophilosophical creations, but at least it values the profane as much as the heavenly. A cool little book with unexpected twists, dreamily narrated.
