Material is Great but the Performance, Not so Much

In reading the reviews prior to purchasing, I saw some negative comments about the performance. I've purchased many books through Audible and hadn't had one I really disliked so I thought I'd give the sample a listen to see how bad it was. The sample isn't bad at all so I thought, "OK, I'll buy it."

Now, in fairness, 80-90% of the reading is ok-good but it's that 10-20% that makes me cringe quite honestly. While I can appreciate a reading that doesn't sound robotic, I don't like to be read to like I'm 5 years old either. It's just too much. I like listening to my books either early in the morning or before I go to bed and I couldn't do it with this book. It's just to mmmm...jarring. Jarring seems like the right word.

Well, the book itself is fine but also agree that perhaps a woman reading would have been nicer since the author was a woman also but that's not a deal breaker for me. Words are words. Just didn't care for the overly animated sections.

I think this is the first negative review of a performance I've given so that's something to consider. Sorry, sir but maybe bring it down a notch.

Missing a lot

This audio is missing a lot of the book contents! Instead of playing music at end of each chapter you should have included the book content...

Should be narrated by a woman...

Would you try another book from Florence Scovel Shinn and/or Cary Valentine?

The material is amazing, as I have read Mrs. Shinn's books. Although having a man narrate the audio book isn't the best choice, and to add to that, he sounds a bit racist when quoting a man from India, using a fake Indian accent. Not necessary!

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Cary Valentine?

A female who has read the book.

Any additional comments?

It would be great if you were to re-release this fine work with a female voice instead.

life enhancing books!

These books are life changing, and life enhancing! These books have helped me understand what being Christian is really about. These books taught me how to not live in fear and how to practice living in faith. I plan on getting God is my supply tattooed on me. These books helped me step out of fear, after reading these I moved across the country without promise of a job or anything and have made it just fine, and I met the love of my life. I couldn't recommend this book anymore. It's seriously a book I would recommend to anyone to help wake up and live your life! regardless of what religion you are.

A Great Abridged Audiobook

I have been reading Florence Scovel Shinn for many years now and often read at least one of her books every three months. I was delighted to have found this unabridged audio version of her entire works.

The way I use Audible mostly is to play the audio and read along at the same time. Many titles I have on Audible are audios of books I already own physically.

I was amazed that this unabridged audio book had swathes of text missing from the audio that are to be found in the printed version. Also it is not as faithful to the text as it should be as it omits or changes some words even in sentences.

I must admit it was hard to follow the printed words with what is on the audio as entire pages are not recorded. I got lost many times when following along.

I have given this book 4 stars in all ratings as any work that shares the lovingness of Florence Scovel Shinn is a blessing to the world.

Now when I listen to this I have to put away my printed copies of the books and understand that this is an abridged version of her works. For the many other titles I have I still follow along listening and reading at the same time.

This audiobook of Florence Scovel Shinn's works is a must have, but bear in mind, if you love her works like I do, that it does not contain all the content that can be found in the printed originals.

For shifting energy, this book is very helpful

I enjoyed this book which I have been listening to over the past few weeks. It has helped me stay focused on where I want my mind to be. If you are on a personal journey, in my opinion this is a great book to listen to and has many gifts within its pages.

Great no doubt, shame about the disrupting music

I loved the idea of compiling Florence's complete works and was looking forward to this audio. Sadly there is random music at the end of chapters that quite frankly ruins this audio book experience. I'm in two minds about returning the book and will most likely return it just on this issue as the music is high pitched and plays randomly disrupting the content and flow of the amazing books being read. I say to the author please consider an audio book version with no accompanying music for those of us with sensitive ears.

One of the best!

Truly informative book that everyone should read to improve their life. These aren't new ideas, but since this woman wrote this in the 1800's, they certainly were then and undoubtedly have influenced many truth speakers today. I'm sure without knowing, Florence channelled this information to be of service to humanity. The way it is written and the narration make this a really wonderful book. Highly recommended!!

Disappointing unnecessary additions

I purchased this audiobook so that I could listen to Shinn’s wisdom but it is continually overshadowed by unnecessary lengthy gaps in between her affirmations, tinkling water sounds, and ridiculous character voices. I’ve had to skip past many of the key portions I wanted to hear. Next time just read it straight without the crazy extras.
