A vital piece of history to understanding the world as it is today. Very well presented - nice pace and interestingly put. I listened to it a few months ago and only just realised that it comes with a pdf booklet of 65 pages which would be a good companion to the listening. Some maps in the booklet would be very helpful though.
It's taken me 25 years to get around to 'reading' this after most other Australian kids read it at school. It is well worth the wait! Whilst the first chapter is a little slow the pace quickens and soon you won't be able to stop. The reading is performed perfectly - Bruce Kerr nails the accents without a hint of mockery that often seems to appear when people attempt an aboriginal accent. His Irish and English accents are spot on too. Highly recommended!
Great story. Classic Murakami. Very well read. My only gripe is the accent of the reader. I know your main market is the US, but couldn't you have got someone with even a slight Japanese accent? It was very hard to visualise the characters as Japanese when everyone had a variety of US accents. Still worth purchasing though.
