Description

Summer's Path is the remarkable story of Don Newport, an engineer that comes face to face with his personal destiny under extraordinary circumstances. After losing his job and his health insurance, Don learns he has a terminal disease with only a few months left to live. On his death bed, he meets Robert, a brazen angel of death that promises to help Don with a graceful exit.

As Don prepares to say his last goodbyes to his loving wife, Robert attempts to change Don's perspective about his mortality and proposes an exceptionally unique option. Robert leads Don through an astounding meditation of life and death and reveals various healing and spiritual concepts including walk-ins, embodiment and soul destiny. On this magical journey of self realization, Don discovers that it's never too late to learn profound life lessons about ourselves and our loved ones.

A bad new-age after-school special

I generally devour all audible books and even like poorly narrated ones (to put me to sleep at night).
After 500 or so downloads, I finally found a book I hate! This went beyond bad narration. Bad writing, no character development, extremely wacked-out plot premise, unrealistic character reactions. Way out there... and way bad. Good thing it was free.

Free? This author owes me money.

I thought this utterly awful and immature book was made worse by its narrator, who whined the dialog. A ridiculous waste of computer space. Even at free it wasn't worth the download or my listening time. I gave it the one star only because a rating is forced. It doesn't count ... the book deserves no star.

Subtly wonderful

I had this terrible experience once when I saw a movie, loved it, and then read the reviews. The reviews painted the flick as a flawed release on many fronts and rated it at something around 1.5 out of 5. I decided that when movies are concerned, people's opinions would only be valuable to me if I valued something about, or in, them that would make their opinion significant to me.
Well, same thing happened to me with this Scott Blum book, "Summer's Path." I was surprised at the negative reviews written here, which I saw when I came back to order the sequel, "Waiting for Autumn." I thoroughly enjoyed "Summer's Path." I found it insightfully intriguing! If one is willing to read/listen with an open mind--which by the way is the only kind of mind that permits growth--wonder and pensive introspection may be their reward.
Keep in mind, however, I hold myself out as no intellectual. I am but a battered and bruised recovering know-it-all, learning to enjoy, without my own old stuffy filters, all that this beautiful world has to offer.
I am so looking forward to "Waiting for Autumn." Thank you, Scott.

Very New Age

Did you know that suppressed emotion causes cancer, or causes it to spread? Me neither. The author evidently believes so.

I tried to stick it out, but about three-quarters in, when the author got into blather about the "three spiritual bodies" that inhabit a person's physical body -- and a dog's physical body -- I gave up on this book. Isn't the very term "spiritual body" oxymoronic?

The author is no doubt sincere in his beliefs. This reader doesn't care to be prosyletized about them.

storyline was interesting

although the storyline was interesting, the book was not altogether cohesive, over explaining certain elements and glossing over others. the narration; however, was abysmal. it made it very difficult to sit through the book and I found myself trying to not mock the narrator's delivery. painful.
the story ends somewhat abruptly as well. and although I may be curious to see where the story heads in the series, there is no way I will buy it as an audio book if the same narrator delivers the story.

Really??

This book was just silly. The poor delivery only made it worse.

Narrrator needs to work on her reading

It only got my attention at the very end.
The narrator really needs to work on her reading aloud, she's a novice.

Bad book, worse narrator

This book did inspire me: never to listen to a bad book again. From now on, an audiobook will have to grab my attention in the first chapter and have a narrator who can at least pronounce basic words. Her voice was shrill and bland, as other reviewers have mentioned, especially when raised, and every time she said "farmiliar"--"familiar" with an unnecessary "r"--I wanted to abandon the book. Too bad I didn't before it abandoned the reader, with an advertisement for the sequel and barely a pretense of an attempt at a credible ending to the first one--unless I was so bored by that time that I missed it.
