I started with the Celestine Prophecy audio book and it was great, I then read the tenth insight as it didn't seem to be an audio book and then when I saw this book was now audio I was really exciting.....unfortunately the recording is very poor, no where close to the brilliant quality of the Celestine Prophecy, and this is a real disappointment. Thankfully I have also read the book as I am finding this really hard to listen to as the crackling and strange timbre is quite harsh on tinitus suffers and it requires a bit of concentration. This is a real shame, the book is so amazing but the power is lost by the really shocking quality of the recording.........
"BertFilm on Secret of Shambhala"
A well fitted sequel to Celestine Prophesy. The writing style, and character development extends the idea of an improved "world view" based on the mentality of being in the NOW by completely participating in the experience, catalyzed by a positive attitude toward change of intention. James Redfield stylizes himself with "fight or flight" and "hunting and pursuing" that inspires the reader to try "power of mind" which arises from those lightning-like breakthroughs, emerging from a deep intuitive certitude.
Overall a wonderful audio-experience that leaves one feeling better and looking at the world in a more positive light!
"Could not listen to this"
Audio quality is way BELOW the usual Audible standard, even in
"Good book and performance but sound quality is bad"
Better, more professional sound quality
The Celestine Prophecy
All the characters were believable. LeVar Burton is excellent
Story and narration
Great sequal to Celestine Prophesy the story continues and takes the reader to the next level. Gives the listener a lot to consider. Very interesting.
I have read 2 other titles by James Redfield. This one may seem the same but it actually picks up where the Eleventh Insight left off. He tells a story but at the same time, he is giving you information that is very beneficial. I recommend his books if you are looking for a path towards spirituality. The only thing I did not like is the quality of the audio, its a little scratchy. Other than that, it is a book worth listening to and reading. I will probably still buy the book so that I can outline some things that are good to remember and included in my daily life.
The Journey from Celestine Prophecy The 10th Insight( Wish it was in Audio but totally worth the read), The Secrets of Shambala to the 12th Insight is nothing short of Life Changing .
It explains Why we are here and who we are through a wonderful Journey/Story ,and so much more .Explained in a fashion you can't help but absorb each and every Explanation/meaning.
It has forever changed me into the person I had met many times thoughout my life but in only brief glimpes, Now I can be.... Just ..Me
Thank you James Redfield for sharing this so beautifully..My eyes are forever open now.
Sorry Audible but such a wonderful book should have been made with better sound quality .
My only complaint..
"Great Story Great Performance, Disappointing Audio"
LeVar Burton's performance in this sequel is on par with Lou Diamond Phillip's reading of the original Celestine Prophecy. This audiobook is unfortunately let down by lower quality audio. I cringed at the background music when each chapter title was read.
But it is a sufficiently engaging story and reading, to put that out of your mind after a while.
I love James Redfield's books... I've read most of them and thought this would be good company for me while I painted in my studio. The plot is a typical one for Redfield; I found the subject matter to be very interesting and I learned some new things. The narrator did a pretty good job with the various voices, especially the Tibetan ones, but the protagonist's voice was sometimes annoying. My only real complaint is that the overall quality of the recording was a bit garbled. I had to turn the volume way up to hear it, and even then it wasn't always clear.
"Worst sound quality possible - don't bother"
The sound quality on this recording is so completely terrible that it has shaken my faith in audible.com's reputation for providing a quality audio experience. DO NOT order this title - it should be trashed from audible's selection.
I would like a refund for this title!
I liked the story, but the sound quality was very bad. Audible should make a new version of the book. My advice is to listen to a sample of this book before you buy and pay.
