Wonderfully Relaxing Listen

This book was recommended by a friend who said I had to listen. I value her opinion, so I purchased it. She wasn't wrong. It is wonderful. It relaxes your soul while reminding you of what Love is really about. It's been a while since a book has made me feel that way. The narrators' voices are so soothing and engaging at the same time. This is a real gem of a find.

Poetry for the wise

The poems are quite nice and descriptive. The narrator's tone didn't fit. Would have preferred a little more variety with the readings. Narration of the poems felt a disconnection.

Absolutely loved this

This audiobook of poems was fantastic, particularly with the accompanying paintings for each poem. Many of them spoke beautiful stories that came to life as I viewed the included PDF. I've given this several listens and will likely return as I very much enjoyed listening to these poems. Highly recommend! Excellent narration!

Exquisite.

This is just perfection. The emotions are just pure, and the narration is spectacular. The PDF is a great plus, and I don't have more words to describe how good this audiobook is. Give it a try!

Poetry with music

I don't normally listen to poetry so am unsure of how to rate this compared to other poetry but as far as production goes, it's done well.

The narration has a unique style

Wonderful and Charming

This is a gift book. There isn't anything like it. This poet and artist's voice is unique in its intonation of love and the Beloved. The poems are magical, they dance off the page and palpably do their part to deepen your own love. The paintings vibrate with life and color, inviting you to further embrace the happiness of being alive in this body, on this earth. It is a trip into ecstasy. If you are ready for that, I'd say go for it!

Great listen

The author Carolyn did a great job in putting the poems together into this audiobook. The poems were romantic and touchy. The accompanying PDF was interesting too and gets your imagining the scenes of what the poetry is about. The narration by Carolyn was really smooth and the background music was perfect for each poem.

A great audio experience

Wow I felt I was sitting in the audience for this. I love poetry but the authenticity and master of the language came through on the audio from what is clearly well crafted art. A lovely and hypnotic moving experience. Just amazing and will be seeking out more.

Thought provoking.

Along with this book I received a free file containing at least 16 beautiful works of art which really got me in the mood for this relaxing audiobook. All the poems in this book were constructed and spoke in a wondrous way allowing the reader to develop a story inside their head. In particular, my favorite was "have mercy, eros". You could really hear the sorrow and anguish in the narrator's voice and the music fitted perfectly.

Charming and thoughtful

This audio piece was both charming and thought provoking. The poetry was both soothing, and challenging. The only thing that (to me) let it down is that I feel poetry needs to be read with conviction, and I didn't get that from the narrator. I found her voice to be a be a bit wavering.
