Journey To Ixtlan

Fantastic Book full of wisdom with lots of humor, more of the carlos books need to be put on audiobook. The way of looking at ourselves and our death and the reality of how serious it should be, but how in reality we believe things about ourselves that are false images,this book makes me listen !

So well done! How about doing Tales of Power?

If you could sum up Journey to Ixtlan in three words, what would they be?

This classic Castaneda story, the first which doesn't feature psychedelic drugs, holds up well in time. I first read it 40 years ago. Immediately, after listening to Journey to Ixtlan, I tried to find the audiobook version of Tales Of Power, the book that follows this one, but it apparently does not exist in audio format. I would beg Luis Moreno to do this sequel, as the new generation of audiobook listeners shouldn't be tantalized with Journey To Ixtlan, salivating for more, only to find the series abruptly terminated.

What other book might you compare Journey to Ixtlan to and why?

Autobiography of a Yogi is the closest that comes to mind. Truly, there is little out there that compares to Castaneda's writing. He's in a class by himself.

Which scene was your favorite?

The "hiding" of Carlos's car was a lot of fun.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I love the concept of a "Worthy Opponent," and Carlos's experiences with his.

Any additional comments?

Put Tales of Power into Audiobook format!

Fantastic Audio Book!

I couldn't ask for a better reading and performance of this book. Luis Moreno does an incredible job and I really wish they would hire him to do the rest of Carlos Castaneda's astounding books.

Made me cry

If you could sum up Journey to Ixtlan in three words, what would they be?

closure.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Don Genaro.
His teaching style is so different to that of Don Juan. He plays a much more important role in this book.

Which scene was your favorite?

The perceptions of reality without the use of psychotropic plants. (the lost car in particular)
Close second is the details of the feud with Catalina.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes. Don Genaro's story at the end made me cry. The insight he gives into the life of a 'Man of Knowledge' was something Don Juan never touched on.

Any additional comments?

You must listen to the first 2 books before this one

Journey to Ixtan an awakening.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would have to reccomend this book on the premis that it exposes the illusion of our reality.

What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

The most compelling aspect I would have to say is the adventures Don Juan takes our hero on.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

The narrator was adequate enough to get the story told.

Philosophy In The Desert

What did you love best about Journey to Ixtlan?

One of the best in the Don Juan/Carlos Castaneda series, in my opinion. Castaneda reviews the non-hallucinogenic plant events during his meetings with Don Juan in various Mexican locations. Don Juan lays out many advanced philosophical concepts and techniques relating to paths followed by seekers of enlightenment. Prepare to have your world views destroyed and expanded.

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed the reader's characterizations of Carlos and Don Juan. Carlos as an inquisitive student and Don Juan as a commanding mentor. His style is entertaining, without over doing anything. I truly hope that he will produce an audiobook of the fourth Castaneda book in the series, "Tales of Power."

Enjoy for the story or as a textbook on life!

What made the experience of listening to Journey to Ixtlan the most enjoyable?

This is my third Audible Castaneda book and I am hoping for more soon. I think following his journey in succession is key to understanding his experience. It seems that each book becomes more "mature" in its content.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Journey to Ixtlan?

I laughed out loud a great number of times when picturing Don Juan and Don Hernado responding to Carlos' inane questions, only to realize I would have asked the exact same question ... funny because it's true.

What does Luis Moreno bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Honestly I think Mr. Moreno's accent brings an air of authenticity to the story.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The last five minutes of the book summed up so much of what life is all about, I was moved to tears.

Any additional comments?

Don't get hung up on whether or not this is entirely factual. That is not important, suspend you disbelief and learn through the excellent story telling. Then decide for yourself. I struggled with some of Castaneda's experiences, but I prefer to take his word for it and understand that there is more out there that I have NOT experienced than what I have!

Please hire Luis to read all of Castaneda's books!

Where does Journey to Ixtlan rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Since '91 Castaneda has been my favorite author and Journey to Ixtlan my favorite book. So it goes without saying that I rank this as my all time favorite book - in any format.A close second would be The Power of Silence - wherein we finally find out how don Juan came to be a Man of Knowledge.

What did you like best about this story?

Man what a question. Where to begin? How about I just say that it has everything. Adventure. Humor. Suspense. Poignant Nostalgia - when we learn why Genaro can never return to Ixtlan. Above all it has a ring of authenticity few books that purport to impart wisdom have.

If you could only read two books that would point the way to a joyous life it would be this one and Eckart Tolle's A New Earth. Both are masterpieces in their own way. Tolle's book, it must be said, is more direct but I LOVE Castaneda's narrative story telling style of writing.

What about Luis Moreno’s performance did you like?

Luis does a great job of reading this story. His voice is perhaps a bit sharper than I'd like but that's picking nits. I'm sure I'm not alone in wishing that, if the rest of Castaneda's books are put here on Audible, Luis does the reading.You are going to do all of the books right? Right?

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The end part that recounts Genaro's encounter with an ally and how the world was different, but the same, afterward.

Any additional comments?

It bears repeating...PLEASE HIRE LUIS TO READ ALL OF CC's BOOKS.

endlich Hörbücher zu den Büchern Carlos Castanedas

Lange darauf gewartet war ich hoch erfreut über die Hörbücher zu den ersten 3 Büchern Castanedas.
Der Sprecher macht seine Sache gut und es ist eine gute Entscheidung gewesen,
es schlicht von einer Lesestimme lesen zu lassen und keinerlei zusätzliche Elemente
einzusetzen.
Die Inhalte faszinieren zeitlos und es ist die Aufgabe des Sprechers, hinter die Inhalte
zurückzutreten und die geschilderten Ereignisse wirken zu lassen. Das gelingt in diesem
Hörbuch gut. Darum gibt es auch die volle Punktezahl.

The car is not here either

Very wise teachings and very well narrated. The world is a mystery indeed. Once you see, you can't go back. But you can laugh and sing and dance. Or look for your car with your friend... under a boulder.

I rate this with five stars and recommend it wholeheartedly.
