This was the last fiction audible download for me. The novel seems to ramble and hang on the insignificant. I would find myself interrupting the story with no regret. Can't recommend it.
The author has done well with a topic that could well be dead weight. However, I found myself being cautious not to eat during the reading.
Bryson's work is definitely worth a listen and a re-listen. It is an immense compilation of facts about the growth of science, the individuals who pushed it forward, and the history of the times within which they lived. Very colorful and and lively, I came away feeling more conifident about the future of the human race, when such flowers bloom within.
