Beautiful Poetry, Beautiful Reading
I'm totally happy with having purchased this audio book.
Rumi is/was new to me. Fascinating biography, fantastic poetry and cleary the author, who doubles as the presenter is both knowledgable and in love with his subject.
Other reviewers seem to have had problems withe delivery/speech pattern of the author. I can only put it down to his English accent, though for me his joy for the subject radiates on the recording and brings the emotionality of the subject to the fore.

This audio book is only for those who understand and want to reach out to the mystical side of life. Harvey is an excellent spokesperson for the Mystic poet Rumi and his slow manner of speech is perfect for a greater understanding into the depth of Rumi's beautiful poetry. I give this reading a definite 5 stars - this is one of the few audiobooks that I have that I will listen to over and over.
