Narrator can’t even say the name of author properly

TERRIBLE ENGLISH NARRATION BY ENGLISH ACTOR.
The horrible narration is a serious disservice to the author.
Actor reads Portuguese names as if it was Spanish.
English people ALWAYS behave like English people. Ignorance is what can be expected, but not accepted!
I hope the actor didn’t get paid.

Not up to Coelho’s usual standard

A disappointing listen compared to his other novels. Not worth the download in my opinion.

Short, sweet and uplifting.

There’s nothing not to like and definitely worth 5 minutes of your life. A positive if somewhat well known tale.

Have faith

If you have Gather ‘Round the Sound, you’ll already have a copy of this short story.
The Snowy graphic is a very poor choice as this selection clearly states that it was BASED ON AN INDIAN STORY.
It’s basically a Christmas story that can be interpreted as having references to faith; fate; or believing in your dreams.

Life awaits an author

Each of us wants something. It is our awareness of what life wants from us that gives the greatest reward. Sometimes the actions are are perplexing for those in the moment and so this story continues in this special way.

Short and moving

It was too short but a solid read. I felt like there was some spiritual connection that was just beyond my reach. I felt it hovering though. As I was listening, there were many scriptures going through my head.

Nice but too short

I enjoyed listening to the short story. We should have been longer. Four minutes it’s just too short.

Lucid and Succulent

Simple tale of a young boy getting its job. The narration was good. Vocabulary simple.
