Journey To Ixtlan

Fantastic Book full of wisdom with lots of humor, more of the carlos books need to be put on audiobook. The way of looking at ourselves and our death and the reality of how serious it should be, but how in reality we believe things about ourselves that are false images,this book makes me listen !

So well done! How about doing Tales of Power?

If you could sum up Journey to Ixtlan in three words, what would they be?

This classic Castaneda story, the first which doesn't feature psychedelic drugs, holds up well in time. I first read it 40 years ago. Immediately, after listening to Journey to Ixtlan, I tried to find the audiobook version of Tales Of Power, the book that follows this one, but it apparently does not exist in audio format. I would beg Luis Moreno to do this sequel, as the new generation of audiobook listeners shouldn't be tantalized with Journey To Ixtlan, salivating for more, only to find the series abruptly terminated.

What other book might you compare Journey to Ixtlan to and why?

Autobiography of a Yogi is the closest that comes to mind. Truly, there is little out there that compares to Castaneda's writing. He's in a class by himself.

Which scene was your favorite?

The "hiding" of Carlos's car was a lot of fun.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I love the concept of a "Worthy Opponent," and Carlos's experiences with his.

Any additional comments?

Put Tales of Power into Audiobook format!

Living Life On The Edge

This book will help people to realise the need to understand that nothing is ever permanent in life and to learn to live their lives as if today was their last day.

What a Journey!

Well, having read the book at least eight times over the years, I was delighted when I saw it was in audio format recently. I listen to the book when there is quiet around (which I feel is a must) as you need all your concentration to fully absord the wonders which are presented to you. The use of an American/Latino reader -Luis Mareno- adds to the sense of reality of the piece. I will be moving on to part two shortly and have just purchased A Separate Reality parts 1 & 2 also! Happy Days!
