©1923 Kahlil Gibran; (P)1951 Random House, Inc.
The Prophet is Gibran???s masterpiece, a wonderful blending of timeless wisdom with beautiful poetry. I???ve read the book and have heard other audio versions, but this recording by the late Paul Sparer is without equal.
This needs to be listened to many times as you will hear something new with every listen. Almost allows you to step out of life and be an observer. Very powerful, very thought provoking, very beautiful.
I had a copy of this on cassete tape, loved to listen to it then and even more now, Ipod makes it so much easier to enjoy.. Inspiring to listen to in this format, as in its prior overly listened cassete format.. Enjoyed listening to it this morning at work before the day began.. Narrator, pleasant to hear,, and as always Khail Gibran a pleasure to visit again and again....
"narrator is overly dramatic. great book."
silly dramatic narrator . beautiful story. would recommend but with different narrator. listen first. thanks
"Timeless.... another of MANY Ways"
NOW is the time to bring ALL the Prophetic ways TOGETHER to demonstrate our commonality.
always love hearing this poem. very hopeful and uplifting. i especially love the parts about love.
"One of life's must read books."
Must have read it a thousand times! A guide to life, with words of wisdom on love, money, and more.
"Guide to the Galaxy"!
A definite Guide to life on planet earth.
I highly recommend for all.
"Amazing how much wisdom in such a short book!"
No doubt this is the kind of book you should read many times during your life in order to get a deeper understanding every single one.
Without equal. Read this more times than I can count, and now I'm very happy to be able to listen at will.
This is my first foray into Khalil Gibran's work and l must admit that l am mersmerised and drawn in equal measure. This book and the narration is beautiful. I have listened to it twice already. Too many quotes and images for me to consider.
