Publisher's Summary

In the rain forests of Peru, an ancient manuscript has been discovered. Within its pages are 9 key insights into life itself - insights each human being is predicted to grasp sequentially, one insight after another in the move toward a completely spiritual culture on earth. The Celestine Prophecy, a compelling story of intrigue, suspense, and revelation, is a guidebook that has the power to crystallize your perceptions of why you are where you are in life - and to direct your steps with a new energy and optimism as you head into tomorrow. This work has come to light at a time when the world - and you - need it most.

Good book, but I didn't like the voice

I've read this book before, but hearing it read by this particular reader did not add to my enjoyment. He sounds like he's reading a 3rd grader a bedtime story. But this is not that type of book - it's very spiritual, and I expected a different tone. Not dramatized, not preachy, but not contrived to inspire wonder either. The voice should drop at the end of important points, and there are many in this book. The reader's suspension of his voice in the upper registers without bringing closure to each sentence makes it campy to me. This of course is just my opinion, having already imagined a tone for the book. First-timers might not feel this way about this version.

Good message/bad story

I would categorize this book as a self help type listen. A friend of mine highly recommended I order it because of the philosphy of the writer. The story itself was very poorly written and amaturish. The writer would tell a story and then explain the point, as though you are a child. The philosphy itself was eye-opening and very helpful to me. If you are interested to know his philosphy and you are in the mood to extract this from this listen, it would be worth your while to order.

This book only fills you with hope.It is the only book that I reread with as much pleasure each time and new details become clear.I first read this book nearly twelve years ago. The power of the book insired me to name my daugher 'Celestine'Every body should read it and realise how much our actions effect others. I hope that you get as much pleasure as I did.

This is one of the most inspiring books I have ever come across, this is a spiritual fictional thriller that offers fast paced action as well as amazing insights in to how the world could be. This story is based around a manucsript that was written thousands of years ago by the Mayans in Peru and in it they have predicted how the world and humans will develop spiritually in the 20th and 21st Centuries, it is a really lovely story and always makes me smile when I think about it. It will give you hope that the world may find peace and harmony at some stage!

Too fast

Love the story but didn't enjoy how it was read - mainly because I found it felt rushed - too fast. I tried to play it at a slower speed but it sounded ridiculous.

The narrator has ruined one of my favourite books

I have loved this book for many years, and have read it countless times when younger. The narrator was so bad! He kept forgetting to change voices between characters. He was very monotone and didn't capture the essence of the book at all. It was a very lazy effort on his part.
So so so sad this books been portrayed in this way.
