learning about the Islands of Hawaii and the course of leprosy
The first few chapters were read as if to a child. But just before it became too annoying, she began reading it in an adult voice. I especially enjoyed her pronunciations of the Hawaiian words.
Can't stop listening
Following the characters from the first book through the second book gave a very personal account of the political and economic events. Some periods, like Hitler's rise to power, have been covered in so many books, but other periods are rarely covered. Follett's books followed simultaneous stories. If you liked "Pillars of the Earth", you will love this.
John Lee's voice is very easy to listen to for long periods of time. Great for long car trips.
