THE HALF KNOWN LIFE In Search of Paradise

by | Read by Pico Iyer

Spirituality • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Travel writer Pico Iyer combines his fascination for a variety of cultures with the idea of finding a peaceful utopia in his latest audiobook. Iyer's Indian accent is authentic, articulate, and delicate as he describes his journeys around the world to spiritual places such as the Himalayas and Japan's temples. He pairs each destination with personal philosophical thoughts on the idea of paradise and ponders whether peace can be obtained in the present. These questions add more depth to his work than one finds in the usual travel book. Those who appreciate captivating locations and spiritual contemplation will relish Iyer's explorations.
