Publisher's Summary

The Story of a Soul (l'Histoire d'une Âme) is the autobiography of Thérèse of Lisieux. It was first published on September 30, 1898, a year to the day after her death from tuberculosis at the age of 24, on September 30, 1897. The book was a single volume formed from three distinct manuscripts - manuscripts of different length, written at different times, addressed to different people, and differing from one another in character. The work of unifying these disparate manuscripts was carried out by Pauline, the sister of Thérèse. It was initially published with a limited audience in mind, the Carmelite convents and certain religious personalities, and just 2000 copies of the 475-page book were printed. It quickly became a publishing phenomenon, however, and Sister Thérèse of the Child Jesus was canonised in 1925. St. Dismas Catholic Classic editions are all new translations.

Sounds like a robot with a drawl is reading

What disappointed you about The Story of a Soul: The Autobiography of St. Therese of Lisieux?

The story is a classic--obviously. However, this performance was so bad that I couldn't bear more than 5 minutes. I returned it. She drew out words to more syllables than you could believe (God became Gah-ah-ad). Strangely robotic.
