Publisher's Summary

Thomas Merton is one of the most famous American Catholic authors of the twentieth century. A prolific writer, Merton published 36 books and collections of poems over the span of 27 years, and has 38 posthumous publications that bear his name. Even more impressive than his voluminous output, however, is his deep spirituality that enraptured generations of people seeking intimate union with God. This is the story of a man who sought God throughout his life and dedicated himself to a life of holiness.

Robert Grothe--narrator, is a real live robot!

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

This narration was so clumsy and awful that it almost totally made me want to stop listening. So bad I honest to gosh don't believe it was done by a human but a clumsily computerized robot. Not one, not one name or word that a fairly educated Catholic would know was pronounced correctly...just impossible! However, it is SO terrible that it would almost make it worth the price to listen to it, laugh at the stupid mis-pronunciations, and have a contest with a friend determining what the "narrator" attempted to say.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Obviously, Thomas Merton.

Would you be willing to try another one of Robert Grothe’s performances?

On April Fool's Day, yes. If it was free

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

over maybe six months...

Any additional comments?

This is my very first review. I want my money back!

This is a dreadful reading

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I would not recommend it. It is written at a level appropriate for a child and the narration is dreadful.

What other book might you compare Thomas Merton to and why?

You would be much better off reading Seven Storey Mountain.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator has difficulty pronouncing simple words and names. For example, he cannot pronounce Bermuda or Cicero. This is just painful to listen to.

Was Thomas Merton worth the listening time?

It is very short so I suppose so.

Any additional comments?

Didn't anyone listen to this before they put it up for sale? Good grief!
