I endured the entire book and couldn't wait to get it finished...awful! This is the WORST book I have yet downloaded. Rambling and at times incomprehensible, the development is weak and incosequential and the characters poorly developed. Robin McGregor/Campbell plays a "bit-role" in the story line. I personally find the narrator's style affected, laborious and irritating; his presentation drawling and monotonous, as in all the other readings that I have heard of his thus far. His Scottish accent is on the contrary suprisingly unaffected and authentic.
An excellent read. Concise, sympathetic, and interesting. Well researched and presented. I thoroughly enjoyed the narration. I will be listening to this book again. Five stars from me.
This is an inspiring and beautifully written book and one I will probably re-read, as fresh today as when it was written over 150 years ago; English prose at it's height. The narration is as well superb. This ranks with Jane Eyre as one of my all-time favourites.
