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.
