The Eyes Of The World

Gelesen von Tom Weiss

(4,647 Sterne; 102 Bewertungen)

The Eyes of the World was the Best Selling Book for 1914 according to Publisher's Weekly. The novel explores what Harold Bell Wright views as the false world of artists, writers, critics, and their wealthy patrons. Two of the main characters are the famous author, Conrad LaGrange and Aaron King, an aspiring artist. LaGrange regretfully describes his writings as “filthy stories in good English” and feels he has sold his soul to become successful. While in California, recovering from a physical breakdown, he befriends Aaron King whose mother he knew when he was a boy. Lagrange serves as counselor to the young man, for he knows the pitfalls of success from his own experience. (Summary by Tom Weiss) (11 hr 33 min)

great values held forth

(5 Sterne)

Great story which defines good moral values, polite and respectful society! You want to be a pure person!

Wow.

(5 Sterne)

how did I miss this one. adventure, mystery, good over evil, even Godly terminology. what will the neighbors think.? This is how I see so much of the world, especially Hollywood, politics, charities, and so called human rights. so much of it is fake. they have these expensive parties to benefit themselves and not the one they claim its for. socialites get away with murder and disgusting behavior. most of civilization just laughs and think its funny to get away with it.

my favorite book besides the bible

(5 Sterne)

This seems almost like a personal story, showing the gross ugliness of lust, and contrasting it sharply with the gorgeous beauty of pure, innocent love, and the struggle between them, the effects of them, and perhaps even how to choose between them.

A very fitting title for this story

(5 Sterne)

This love story will make you consider the motives of your actions before the eyes of the world. Tom doors an excellent job of reading the story, I wish he would record more of Harold Bell Wright's books

(5 Sterne)

The story didn't force me to experience the snobby side of life much which I appreciate. It focuses more on the artist & the author. It's a drama, a mystery, & a love story with a touch of adventure. Great characters & story.

(5 Sterne)

Great book. Great reader. Portrays the world as it really is. Only what is done for God will last.

Bravo from Borneo

(5 Sterne)

This is an excellently crafted novel that explores the age old theme of whether in life it is better to pursue wealth and fame through the compromise of one's ideals and the favour of others or alternatively to pursue aspirations that yeild less wealth, but are in fact born from personal conviction and gained by personal effort and industry. The novel has strong characters that are developed in detail and they are placed in the context of a beautiful mountain environment that is also described in great detail. The lessons propounded through the telling of this tale are as relevant today as they were over a century ago. Again...bravo!!
