The Prophet

Title: The Prophet
Author:  Kahlil Gibran
Publisher: Random House Audio
ISBN: 9780739333280
Why Read?: For Fun
Challenges: Audio Book, Free Reads, A to Z, 100 Books in a Year

Thoughts: This is a very interesting listen.  The Prophet is not so much a story as treatise on Gibran's understanding of philosphy and religion.  There are some beautiful points made, but others that seem confusing.  The narration was rather odd.  Paul Sparer has an amazing voice, but it would work better in an epic fantasy, and therefore gave the whole work a feel of the fantastic.

Rating: 3 stars
