McMillan's scholarship is deep, her analyses incisive, her personal portraits illuminating and often humorous. My gripe is with the narration, which, to this American listener's ear, is plodding and "vedy sediously" pretentious, barely tolerable even with the iPod cranked up to warp speed. I'd recommend instead McMillan's lecture series on the same topic, available from audible.com, which is of course in her own, very delightful, voice.
