Zen stories

Really great audiobook, there are many short stories here clearly read and very enjoyable to listen to. During the gaps between a previous story and a new story there is a short interval where some oriental style music is played which actually I found to make listening even more enjoyable. I would recommend this audiobook

Zen Stories To Go With Your Flute Music

What is advertised is what is got: Zen Stories and Zen Music. There really isn't much to say about the stories, they're Zen stories: some inspire, some feel like posturing, and some leave you scratching your head. Alec Sand reads the stories as well as they can be read, for which I give him five stars.

Beware, there is A LOT of flute music here. The forty-three minute music collection takes up the final twelve chapters of sixteen. I assume that the first four chapters correspond to the four story collections, but they aren't pure narration. Between each story is a ten-ish second burst of flute music, either to give you a moment to reflect or to pad out the time, and sometimes the bursts go on for quite a bit. I think these longer bursts indicate the end/beginning of a new book, but I'm not sure. They are the reason why I rated the Overall as less than the Performance and Story, which is a first for me.

The discounted price for Audible Members is just what I think this collection is worth. The current nine-dollar price is a bit much, and I certainly wouldn't use a credit.
