Publisher's Summary

An important notion that Søren Kierkegaard explored is Øieblikket, translated as "the moment" or "the blink of an eye". It consists of an actual experience in the individual’s life, yet it cannot be understood as a mere link in the chain of successive moments. Rather, its crucial importance can only grasped when perceived as open to eternity, as the elevation of a mere instant in time to a defining moment which effects a complete change of direction in one’s life.

The Orator makes this a CHORE to get through

I was immediately transported back to high school, where I could recall all of the moronic jocks, barely able to read two grades below themselves, recalling how they would just barrel through whatever text they were told to read. I question whether this gentleman even UNDERSTANDS punctuation. No commas, barely acknowledges periods, and rarely properly inflects for questions.

I can't understand how such important works Get approved with such terrible oratory. This, and other books of philosophy, are frequently sub-par with their oratory, and it's makes one scratch their heads. Fiction and religious texts are given a 4-star treatment more often than not, but anytime I seem to try to get a good existential text or a text that truly attempts to elevate the human condition, I have to contend with shoddy reading that makes things hard to digest.

Get with the program Amazon. 🙄

Not sure if this is machine reeading

The voice itself is OK, but the speed and missing spaces between sentences and sometimes in sentences made me think it must be a machine reading this. Also the lack of feeling during the reading, as if it was a matter of getting to the end fast. Did not enjoy this book for those reasons.

Poor Reader

Terrible reader: He is blandly reading with no attempt at performative speech. Also too fast.
