Story

Heart hugs & intellectual encouragement

I first read this when I was a senior in high school (1971). It has consistently remained on my top 5 books ever since & has continued to be a source of inspiration & encouragement. I've lost count of the number of times I've read it, but *listening* to it has been a revelation of deeper insight! The narration is spot-on... exactly as I imagined it was "supposed" to sound!

Many I've recommended this book to have struggled a little with the "older style" of the writing. Listening to it would completely overcome that for almost everyone. The story is charming & very thought provoking. Although I've read it many, many, times and know the story well, I've found it necessary to stop reading/listening after a couple of chapters to let the message sink in and to ponder a variety of thoughts the story has triggered.

I highly recommend this allegory to anyone. Even a younger child, of say 8-10 years, could possibly be charmed by the story & would very likely relate in many ways to the main character's journey. The depth of the message, however, isn't likely to be more fully embraced until late teens. Well. Actually, to *fully* embrace the message, listening to the story again at various points in life, after troubles & trials have been experienced, I have found new insight & wisdom in the story over time. Therefore, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to a teen/adult of any age.

An out-of-the-ordinary story that is not only charming & well written, but thought provoking and soothing to the spirit. I am so pleased with the reading & so happy I bought this audio version!
