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.

What a load of tripe...

Very poorly written and pretty hokey in general. New age muck mixed up with some self help postive thinking glop and you get this.
I agree with the other reviewer that I wanted to go to sleep listening to the reader.
I can't believe the author felt it necessary to write a "Concise Guide", unless to make a few more bucks off this mush.
Goofy and unbelievable as a novel, even less as a philosophy.
