Narrator's voice doesn't fit

Couldn't get by the narrator's voice. Listen to the sample a few times before you buy. The book content is great, of course, but when listening vs reading the narrator matters.

Easier In Print But...

...worth it in any format you can find it. The narration is choppy and lacks pauses but I was still grateful to find it in audio at all.

Underhill takes on a huge challenge in this book. She attempts to open up a spiritual reality to the pragmatic and practical person who truly doesn’t “see the point” of all that stuff, who feels the obvious is, simply, obvious. I’ve read a lot of books written by believers (of one thing or another) for those who don’t believe, and the books never work; we all see things the way we see them. But I think Underhill is ingenious at what she attempts to do. She is not pitching any particular belief system; rather she is challenging the reader to re-think what you consider “obvious.”

Because that is her objective, audio version might not work alone. I actually had to change the audio setting to “slow” to follow some parts, but the print version is very easy to read and I found it entertaining because of her approach.
