Literally the best book!

I almost know this book by heart. I received it as a gift at a very dark time in my life many, many years ago. It comforts me just as much now as it did at my first reading. Hearing it on Audible made an already beautiful experience even more breathtaking.
I’ll listen again tomorrow.

Loved it

I absolutely loved this book. It is one of those books I am keeping in my favorites to revisit in the future when I want reflect on my life and values. I can't tell you how many times I re-heard chapters to make sure I savored every word. I even bought a compilation of Khalil's works since I do think there are benefits to both listening and reading his work. The narration performance was great but I like to reserve my 5th star for the most amazing performances (P.S. I've only given 5 stars once so far).

A New Favorite to Listen to Again and Again!

what a treasure to find such a timeless classic AND paired with an appropriate narrator! I rarely buy audiobooks outright with cash, but I certainly am glad I did. It is equally rare to find an author who is such a wordsmith, weaving together a beautiful poetic prose in such a way that is both glorious and unpretentious. The only comparison I know of is Rabindranath Tagore, another favorite of mine.

Irritating. Insult to the author.

this book is so close to my heart. I know narrating is difficult and the man obviously is well trained and his voice is commanding. However, when he shifts from protagonist to other characters and females voices, it's insulting. He really makes them sound pathetic, lowly and trite and therefore ruins all of it. I'm a fan of Blackadder and Baldrick but they have no place reading The Prophet. I can't bear to listen...and I've tried to the point of nearly throwing my phone across the room. This needs addressing. I adore audible but this...no. Ruined a masterpiece.
