Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Gore Vidal makes many fascinating points in POINT TO POINT NAVIGATION that I believe all can identify with on our journey to the grave. I bought the complete audio version of this book because I feel the emotion in Mr Vidal's voice, though he keeps it veiled in a professional, human warmth that listeners of audio books most appreciate. I admire him for speaking his mind whether others like it or not. His brilliance, experience and genius have long inspired my respect for him. The detailed death of his true love, after the great many years and experiences they shared, moved me not only to tears but to face the fact that there is no escaping the inevitable. I'm also reminded how young we remain within our bodies chained to time. Of all Gore Vidal's works, many of which I am a fan, this is the one that lets you in. If it is true that one can only respect others as much as one respects one's self, then I feel my self-respect has evolved through the experiences and deep insights shared by Gore Vidal in his points of navigation. He has stirred my emotions, stimulated my intellect, and awakened me through this profound book. I urge all to absorb the wisdom of a man who knows more about life -- not to mention the hidden side of those in power controlling life -- than any writer of our era. Apart from my standing ovation for POINT TO POINT NAVIGATION, I must admit to the sorrow I feel over our dilemma on this dying planet. I guess Mr Vidal really got under my skin with things he left unsaid because of being too sad to say. I wish we could all value each other as if we were a close family stuck on a sinking ship. I wish we could throw the gold overboard in favor of prolonging as many lives as possible. Another human in your arms must feel better than the loneliness of an award or riches.Read more ›

I read Palimpsest and of course had to read the next part of his auto biography. I find this book even more enthralling than the previous one.

I probably have never listened to a more boring book than this one. Vidal's own dry voice did half the damage.
