Definitely--a totally new perspective on African-American history in North America.
Learning something completely unexpected.
His delivery is fabulous, because he's both the author and an accomplished lecturer, so no nuance is missed.
Thomas Cromwell, of course!
All of them--he was unbelievably good at inhabiting each character with slight changes of inflection and accent.
When angels and devils switched places by the minute.
I might not listen to it again, but I'm glad I listened to it once.
Vanity Fair? Daniel Deronda? Something big.
Not possible--too intense.
Pronounced all the words right, and not used such an annoying cutesy voice for the "narrator" parts (as opposed to dialogue). Diana's dialogue voice is much better.
Yes, assuming the actors were interesting and not too young.
This abridgement is far too short. The Recorded Books unabridged version is 24 CDs long, while this version is only 6 hours or so. I like Kyf Brewer's voice and delivery, and Douglas Brinkley's book is amazing, but the editors sliced and diced far too much for the full impact to be felt with this version. I stopped listening to this one after about 1 hour and ordered the unabridged version used online.
