Although this book has a running time of just over twelve hours; the listener is soon immersed and lost in this treasury by Melvyn Bragg. Covering the full span of time from the earliest European roots of English to the most current usage - this is a must listen.
Robert Powell is the perfect reader for this book; his natural style and easy meter really compliment the content.
Regardless of ones views on his politics, you can't but be warmed by this personal account of a remarkable decade in British Politics.
Tony Benn brings a unique, witty and warm insight into some of the headlines of the day; his diary style is light - yet profound, happy, moving and sometimes sad moments are captured.
For the benefit of US listeners - Tony Benn is unique. Here he is reading his own diaries - and really bringing them to life. He is easy to listen to; a familiar voice retelling his experiences.
I recommend this audiobook.
