Obviously, it's quality content. But, it would be nice to know the "who/when/where" of each of the speeches. Many are obvious, but there are more than a few that I couldn't pick out.
Additionally, the chaptering doesn't seem to coincide with the speeches. One chapter contains more than one speech.
Metadata and/or a better description on the Audio Book detail page would be very helpful.
Richard Adams' Watership Down has long been a favorite of mine, and I was recently able to pass it on to my young kids (ages 8 and 6) via this audio book. In lesser hands, the kids would have been bored by the pastoral descriptions and frequent trips down the rabbit hole of Lapine language and culture. Ralph Cosham, however, pulled it off with aplomb. Perhaps it was the British accent. Perhaps it was his staccato, baritone delivery. Either way, he deftly led them (and me) through the forest, in and out of Strawberry's warren, up to the hills of Watership Down, and to Efrafra and back again, with subtle voicings for the different characters that conveyed personality without overdone affectation. Great stuff!
Classic Joseph Campbell myth with a deus ex machina cherry on top!
Warm tones and subtle character voicings.
