Good lessons if you listen close and listen twice. I would recommend to any man.
How could the performance have been better?
This review is not about the story in the book, just the audio. The reader is almost impossible to understand. Very much mumbling and unclear word. Recommend to download another version of this audiobook.
I found the reader's pace, clarity, and timbre just right for the piece.
This is one of those classics of early existentialism that I just have never got around to reading, so having it in audio book form for a bargain price was perfect.
This is one of those books which I would have loved in my teens, as the central character is setting off in life - and that really is the tone of the whole book - the perpetual starter, which I can wholeheartedly relate to many years later.
The references to Buddhism might seem old hat in this day and age, but you have to remember this was written nearly a century ago, and the fable quality of writing does render it almost timeless, although there is the odd strange phraseology that reminds you of the time it was written in.
Well worth a listen, fast paced dash through a man's spiritual journey through his life, so unlikely to leave you bored. Why not give it a whirl. Might make you think.
