Exceptional

Touching & fantastical story that left me wishing Rael was Real. We could really use someone like him today. Wonderfully executed story telling that reminds us to hold caring, compassion and basic humanity as our most valuable abilities. The Book of Constellations reminds us that people are complicated…but all we need to do, is love EVERYONE.

Wonderful!

Thoughtful and sensitive story. The action is exciting, but the message is the point. Oddly, despite being “message-driven,” this story doesn’t feel preachy or dogmatic.
The main character is not from this world, yet he seems so human, & so vulnerable that I felt attached as if he were a real person. I cared about the characters and worried when their adventures took them into danger.
I’ve listened to over a dozen excellent podcasts, but this is the first one I have shared, the first one I needed to share.

Listened to the whole thing in 2 days!!

Amazing storytelling and a beautiful purpose with the journey of Rael. We need more of him, Simon & Satya!
