Reviews


(3 stars)

I listened to this over several months, and found it at times difficult to follow. I think St Teresa even writes about not knowing about what she just wrote in chapter 19 around minute 14, and I just started laughing. That was unexpected. Other times, I thought her writing on prayer was incredible. The book and reading were meditative at times. The reader did a good job, and was not difficult to understand.

Excellent book.
