Unabridged. Read by Jeremy Irons. I guess you could say this is a fable of finding your "personal legend" and more specifically the people and things you meet along the way that you learn from. Most of the ideas I've read in other books, i.e., the Bible, The Celestine Prophecy, etc. It just didn't strike me as it has done other people.

This book is very philosophical. It is about finding one's personal legend. Along the way the people the shepard meets are interesting and do help him. I find the book a little simplistic and the ending is downright biblical. An okay book but nothing earth shattering

Journal Entry 5 by book--crazy from Salem, Oregon USA on Saturday, July 21, 2007
I am very much enjoying this book, even though I normally don't care for audio books on CDs (too hard to find one's place!). It's obviously a story that can be taken on several levels, and it's a bit obvious at times, but since I agree with much of its "new thought" teachings, I am receptive to it.

Another note: I received this book in trade from and although I'm glad I got it, I have mixed feelings about books being listed on book-swap sites. These books are supposed to be GIVEN AWAY -- not exchanged for money, credits, or any other form of "currency." Before I realized it was a bookcrossing book, I had intended on putting it back for trade on one of these sites (which I love). Now, I'm not sure. It's definitely a moral dilemma, don't you think?

Are you sure you want to delete this item? It cannot be undone.
