Performance: Having listened to audio books for 30 years, this is BY FAR the best performance ever. There is no adequate comparison with the other 599 titles or the printed version. The narrator's skill at representing various characters is exceptional. It seems 10 people are in the recording studio. In fact, this is the only audiobook I've ever listened to again immediately after finishing. I would have given 6-stars for performance if possible.
Story: It's 5-star . . . but not 6. There is good reason for unfavorable reviews. The material doesn't suit everyone. Life experience, expectation, and "grumpiness quotient" count heavily. If you're on the "flower child" side of the spectrum rather than "gestapo," you'll like the story.
Overall: Remember this is a fictional story, *NOT* a textbook. There are valuable take-aways based on how you see the world. Listeners bring a partially filled canvas on which they are painted. As Obi-Wan Kenobi said, "Many of the truths we cling to depend greatly upon our own point of view." Overall it is OUTSTANDING!

Wonderful story, which effectively draws one into self-reflection. This book powerfully teaches the timeless truth that we can only change ourselves, but by doing so, with a peaceful heart, we can contribute to changing the world around us.
