Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. With this book, if you are new to Henri and his writings, you will search for them. If you are already familiar with Henri, you will surely go through them again

Who was your favorite character and why?

Of course, more than Henri, it is what his letter contains..the content.

What does Douglas James bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I am yet to read this myself

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No. It is more than that, I will wait for one of his letter to digest, before I go to his next letter. I will also search for a relevant book by Henri with the theme in his letter

Any additional comments?

Thank you Audible. Will be good if more of Henri's books are available as audible editions
