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.

I can’t delete it either… it keeps playing when you select another story

please help I can’t delete it either and it has been very frustrating considering that we’re never listened to the story.

a little short, but still good.

I was wondering how a book could just be 5 minutes long. Good though, thanks
