About the audio file - no preset chapter breaks. Level 3 a bit 'tinny'. Jim Dale is terrific and a pleasure to listen as he works through the multitude of accents and personalities.
About the story - I missed this as a kid, it was already a legend. It's somewhat politically incorrect, but that makes it more fun. We found our selves laughing that "he did NOT just say that!" and it was a hoot to think about the Victorian perspective on world travel and the British Gentleman's culture. Very enjoyable to listen in a car during a journey.
Audio specific: Many busy characters without much differentiation in voices - gets a little confusing when distracted by driving, etc... Who? What? Pretty good at level 3 quality.
As for book review in general - found the romantic sub-plot to be poorly presented and silly. But the story was very engaging and well told overall.
