Everyone should hear message about water use. It is well written backed by facts and numbers.
Very good narration.
As I have read all series I do not know how it would be as a standalone plot fine but perhaps characters not so enjoyable. The series is good if you like roman setting
Story setting was unusual and added interest to plot. recommend if you do not mind narration
No - clear diction but I found mispronounced words irritating - often simple words. Usually I do not like a narration because of accent -tone but here it was mistakes that could have been checked and edited out.
lead character -the doctor - is both appealing and appropriate to his time. Author manages to develop both characters life stories through the series and put them in middle of a murder plot without being too far fetched. I recommend reading from start of series. I like Roman era stories but I think anyone who likes mysteries will like.
If you like books of this naval era this was good read if plot development not unexpected.
I chose because I like Vance as narrator & he did not disappoint
Its rather more technical than most Bryson but good for non scientists. it seems up to date and a mix of the science of a number of disciplines and background on personalitites involved. I was expecting it to be read by Bryson but narration by Roberts was good.
The book is abridged which is not clear on audible .com webiste and this means some of heyer's appealing dialogue is lost. .
