Publisher's Summary

Steve Saint was five years old when his father, missionary pilot Nate Saint, was speared to death by a primitive Ecuadorian tribe. In adulthood, Steve, having left Ecuador for a successful business career in the United States, never imagined making the jungle his home again. But when that same tribe asks him to help them, Steve, his wife, and their teenage children move back to the jungle. There, Steve learns long-buried secrets about his father's murder, confronts difficult choices, and finds himself caught between two worlds. Soon to be a major motion picture, End of the Spear brilliantly chronicles the continuing story that first captured the world's attention in the best-selling book, Through Gates of Splendor.

If it is a good story the reader kills it.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Clearly the narrator was directed to hold a high speed pace and it detracts from the content. It made me wonder if they were trying to save money by using less time to tell the story.


Any additional comments?

The majority of today's narrators are fantastic and contribute to the experience. This book is an exception and it may be more the director's fault than the narrator. A good narrator sounds like he/she is telling a story, this narrator sounds like he is speed reading to get through it faster.
