nice story but choppy monotone reader

the story was nice but the narrator was monotone, and sounded disinterested which made this a struggle to finish. the chapters were a bit choppy and seemed to end abruptly which made me revisit the app to ensure i was not missing any chapters. this feeling couldve also been a result of the narrators delivery.

What a beautiful story

Hare Krishna,

This is a beautifully written and narrated first hand view of Makunda Goswami and his role in starting ISKCON in the 1960's. I fell in love with everyone in the book and have an even deeper understanding of A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada and the profound love he had for the movement and his clear vision that he carried forth. A wonderful read, I finished in a few days because I could not put it down.

Needs professional narration

Good story but delivery just sucks. First person perspective from Mukunda but the deli every leaves MUCH to be desired. Really distracting points - abrupt transitions, having to hear him flip the pages he’s reading from, listening to him swallow/mouth noises, recording setting (like sitting in an empty room and reading).

Would have been a lot more tolerable to get through if it had just been professionally done.

If I knew I would get a refund I would just return it

Wonderful Insights

This is an awesome book and narration be Mukunda Goswami was just as brilliant. We really enjoyed the content and the delivery. I highly recommend this book. Good insights into the early days of the ISKCON movement. Thanks to all for this amazing book.

Very detailed narration of the ISKCON early days

This is my favourite book about the early days of the ISKCON. This book should be read by all committed members of the ISKCON society.
