Interesting Dialogue that fell short of Greatness
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
I love the idea of Jesus taking someone at their death bed for one final adventure and conversation about their life. Especially with someone who's made such a train wreck of their life like Oscar Wilde. Jesus, Wilde and Blaze Pascal walking through Paris and different places Wilde has been in his life. It almost reminds me of A Christmas Carol. I can somewhat relate to Wilde in many ways so I was able to connect with the story quite well for the most part.Why i feel this fell short of Greatness was there were parts that felt very relevant to me and culture today but at the same time their were times where I didn't really understand what they were saying. It was all very intelligent and poetically written but so much so that I had trouble understanding what they were talking about at points. I was like that sounded really pretty and really smart but i have no idea what they just said. So there where points where I got lost. Also I felt like i was getting a lot of head knowledge but didn't really know what to do what that knowledge.
Which scene was your favorite?
When the three of them were walking through the cemetery and the red light district. The church though brief was a nice scene as well.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
The seeker of pleasure who found only pain meets the man who endured the greatest pain and offers the greatest pleasure.

I wasn't sure if I'd like this book when I purchased it and didn't begin it right away. however, once I started it I couldn't stop listening whenever I had the opportunity. I plan to relisten at least once because there are so many deep truths in it that it will require at least one more listen. i also want to read up on Oscar Wilde more. what a timely message for today's pleasure hungry culture.
