This is like listening to someone read from one of those 'Page-a-Day' calendars, but without the passion. The narrator sounds like a pleasant young man who was given a reading assignment. For example, when he introduces each day's reading, he gives a brief biographical note on the author of the quotation and then -- without changing his inflection to indicate that he is now quoting the author -- he instantly transitions into the quotation itself. To say that it is distracting is an understatement. Jarring would be a better word. The quotations are mostly interesting, but the book is not meant to be read (or listened to) for more than about 5 minutes at a time -- the quotation of the day.

Any additional comments?

I think it may be a great book. I couldn't get past the flat hollow Hollywood radio announcer voice of the reader.I am expecting a reading of the most deep and powerful personal spiritual moments known to the West; I'm expecting subtle or direct revelations of men's understanding of, and relationship to, God.What could be more sacred and delicate and raw? I would expect the reader to embody that (at least a little) in his reading, but I detected no sensitivity to the subject, just a direct reading that is not even clear structurally or linguistically.Listen to the sample before you buy. Maybe it's just me. I have no beef with the subject, Just wish I wouldn't have bought it.
