Blomfield's ambitious full-length biography of Gautama Buddha--the source and voice of one of the world's leading religions--is expertly delivered by narrator Jonathan Keeble. The epic tale is unique in that it relays both the main teachings of Buddhism as presented in the Discourses, as well as background information from historians and scholars. Given that the author wished to stray from an overly fictionalized account of the Buddha's life, Keeble's masterful pacing and soothing baritone transports listeners to the world of Gautama Buddha while maintaining a scholarly tone. But this isn't to say the book sounds like a history lesson. On the contrary, this is a tale that listeners can settle into and become fully absorbed in--much like meditation itself.
