From AudioFile:

THE TIBETAN BOOK OF THE DEAD, a traditional Buddhist scripture, is read to the dead or dying to facilitate liberation during the process of death. Both print and audio versions of the translation are included in this production and should be well received by scholars and experienced practitioners. In the introduction Fremantle explains that anyone listening with an open heart and mind will benefit from the text. However, those new to Buddhism may feel slightly overwhelmed with the terminology and discussion of multiple deities. Although Gere's voice is well known, it never distracts from the material. He does a masterful job narrating with clarity and a calm tone. The Tibetan words roll effortlessly off his tongue. It's hard to imagine a better performance. J.T.

From Publishers Weekly:

As part of a Buddhist ritual, this scripture is to be read to a person who is dying, yet it also serves within Buddhist culture to remind people at all stages of life about the reincarnation cycle. While the introduction does provide a brief overview of names and concepts, this translation is not sufficient for the neophyte to understand well enough in an audio production, especially considering how many times Buddhist terms are employed in the production. An additional text guide might have been useful as a quick reference. Richard Gere, a Buddhist himself, smoothly executes the audiobook with inflection and tone that indicate his strong grasp of the material. However, his slight nasal projection might wear a bit on some listeners. A Shambhala paperback.(Aug.)
