Do unto others.....

I didnt like the narration, but the book in itself is worth it. Remind us that is Man who creates evil, and that is in us the solution to it.

Title and content do not match

The book is criticism of Christianity. Step by step various concepts of Church are criticised. I couldn't find what I wanted to hear about how Kingdom of God is within us

much different than expected

listen with an open mind and it will change the way you see things. it was certainly written for the time he lived in, but has universal applications. very good book.

Incredible Work, but garbled fast-pace narration

Incredible work.But due to the face-paced, halting cadence and sometimes slurring speech of the narrator I recommend listening to at .85 speed to compensate. With that adjustment this reading is much more compelling and comprehensible than the other version available on audible. Highly recommended.

Great book--Horrible narration!

I have this as an ebook as well, and was following along with the narration. The narrator skips words, adds words, changes words, and is very hard to listen to! No complaints with Leo Tolstoy, but definitely this is a sub-par rendition.
