Philosophy & Religion • 1.5 hrs. • Unabridged • ©

In his reading of THE PROPHET, narrator Paul Sparer takes on the tone and pace of the wise teacher who is the centerpiece of Gibran's famous work. Sparer's low, patient voice evokes images of fireside talks that stretch long into the night, despite the fact that the book itself is light on physical description. With Sparer's voice as a vehicle, the Prophet's words ring all the more true. His voice recalls the tenderness of a parent speaking to a child, the humor of a friend's confidence and camaraderie, and the patience of one who has seen and understands the world and who seeks to impart wisdom to those in search of enlightenment. The words themselves are inspiring, and their power is enhanced by Sparer's attentive and careful treatment. A.H.A. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2008]
