I loved the book, so I thought why not the audiobook? The abridgment cuts out most of the "meat" of the story. The abridgment is better than nothing (thus four stars) but the book hits much harder with more information and draws the mind further into the story. Worth the read but could have been great.

Ishmael was my first introduction to Daniel Quinn's work and it has started a love affair. After listenening to the audio version and clinging to every word- I went out and bought the book as I felt it must be a part of my library. However after reading the book, I so agree that Audible MUST add the unabridged version- every word is just too important to arbitrarily nip and tuck. Even so- this is a very well read version of the book- and does manage to convey many of the important themes and is definately worth the listen.
This story is thought provoking and full of metaphor- I highly suggest that you listen / read this with a friend or as a part of a book club as it's a perfect catalyst for important conversations- and truly the themes have never been more timley. I have read or listened to this several times and each time get something new- something lovely. Some readers may struggle with this- have an open mind - enjoy the metaphor and illusion. I suggest that you read a bit at a time and take time to talk about it and digest it before reading / listening on- hang in there- it will be worth your time. Allow it to and it will change your life and your spirit.

I absolutely love this book! It became my favourite. I can't believe how the writer and the reader made me feel I want more of it, more knowledge, more sweetness. I think that nothing I can say it will do any justice to this book, there is a before and an after. If you will read one book in your entire life, may this be that one, it is that worth it. Thank you so much!

something or nothing really !!
found it uninteresting.
though this book was going to fascinate me but it didn't and I hated the ending and the character of bueno was boring .not worth the money
great read with a good an engaging story that is eye opening and thought provoking.
Loved every word of this one. Incredible journey told through an unusual but effective medium.
