Timeless Wisdom

This needs to be listened to many times as you will hear something new with every listen. Almost allows you to step out of life and be an observer. Very powerful, very thought provoking, very beautiful.

Beautiful

The Prophet is Gibran???s masterpiece, a wonderful blending of timeless wisdom with beautiful poetry. I???ve read the book and have heard other audio versions, but this recording by the late Paul Sparer is without equal.

Prophetic prophet

I had a copy of this on cassete tape, loved to listen to it then and even more now, Ipod makes it so much easier to enjoy.. Inspiring to listen to in this format, as in its prior overly listened cassete format.. Enjoyed listening to it this morning at work before the day began.. Narrator, pleasant to hear,, and as always Khail Gibran a pleasure to visit again and again....

Book I love the most.

It is food for soul, don't have words to describe it, but I can say it's a modern Geeta, simplified for everyone but has deeper meaning.

Magnificent and profound

This has been one of my favorite books since I found it in California in 1967 when I was a young woman. I have lost my copy and I got the idea when I was thinking about which book order with my free credit on Audible to download it. I could not be more pleased. Paul Sparer Has a magnificent voice for this special book and he reads it impeccably with complete command of the English language. I just love this translation. Thank you audible thank you.

Brilliant

At first I scoffed at the cost for such a short audiobook, but I assure you this brilliant performance of a brilliant text is worth every penny.

best narrator for this book!

the voice matches this book perfectly, there are other versions but the narrator for those feel preaching.
this feels more like a parable and actually a story.

A Classic for the Modern Age

Kahlil Gibran's masterpiece is essential reading for any who seek greater truth and understanding from a human and spiritual standpoint. Gibran's emphasis is on storytelling, and on capturing the essence of empathy, goodwill, kindness, awareness of the 'big picture', and responsibility for how we treat others that is at the core of ALL monotheistic religion and spiritual pathways. For this reason, this book is ubiquitous in its teaching and is a great companion to help remind us of what is essential, what is important, and what is Human, in this life.

Most Amazing Book Ever

This is wisdom, love, and truth. I found this book in my house that was built in 1906 I was so depressed and this book showed up out of nowhere it changed my life. Now, I listen to this book once a year at-least that much but more most years. If you are looking for answers that will lead you to yourself this is the book.

Beautiful

This is my first foray into Khalil Gibran's work and l must admit that l am mersmerised and drawn in equal measure. This book and the narration is beautiful. I have listened to it twice already. Too many quotes and images for me to consider.

Incredible. A must read classic

Loved it. Not a long book, read in 2 sittings. So many nuggets of wisdom to ponder.
