Pretty great subject and writing, bad narration
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes. We all have fears, but from very different things, with which we deal very differently. This book helped me understand a lot about the mechanics of a feeling we never get educated about, but that permeates every decision we make, from whether you ever want to skydive to whether you'll ask the hottest girl you know out or settle for an okay girl who's already into you. I think that after listening to this, I may have learned that I want a lot of things i was keeping away from because of fear, and how working towards confronting those fears, instead of avoiding then, may lead me to enjoying life a whole lot more.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Probably the doc. Damn cool guy.
What three words best describe Jaimal Yogis’s voice?
Low, mumbly, jumbled.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
His son's birth.
Any additional comments?
The book is great, but the narration is a mixed bag. There are a lot of personal experiences in it, which make the fact that the author is the one narrating them great. But throught the book, Yogis prioritizes gravity instead of clarity in his reading, frequently dropping his voice to a mumble, and not just for dramatic emphasys - this happens when explaining relatively simple concepts too. Couple this with his sometimes jumbled speech, and I had to rewind A LOT in order to understand many points, a couple of which I eventually gave up on.
