I found the book interesting, while remaining mindfully engaged with the content was challenging, as the narrative had a melodic voice that often lulled me into a peaceful state of meditation rather than remaining focused and attentive to the material stated. I feel unable to adequately comment or review without re-listening to the content for a second time; simultaneously reluctant to do so due to the quality of the narration.
