Dr MacMillan has a great voice. I felt like she was speaking to me - not reading a script. Excellent articulation and enunciation. I am finding myself listening to this one again and again, from different start points. My friends at work are amazed by how much I now know about this important event in modern history. If Dr MacMillan comes up with another title - I'm buying it. Wish I'd had professors as interesting as her in university...
Pitched to entertain a 60-year-old IT consultant who found it continually surprising and informative. Edwin Newman's reading is marvellous. Annoying only because I often listen to audio books when I go to sleep - but this one keeps me awake too long.
Monotone voice attempting to portray a "sotto voce" dramatic effect, with excessive, constant sonic sound effects intruding just a bit too much into the foreground, impeding my ability to distinguish the voice. And too much focus on verbal "credits" and promotion at the end. I listen to multiple pieces of audio at night, or in the car, or on the plane, and I want a minimum of fanfare coming in and going out.
