This audio version of a fantastic book is perfect. The narrator is grand, capable of pronouncing russian names without a problem, and keeping the right rythm, not reading to slow or to quickly.
The book is written, grouping the events and actions surrounding certain persons or places, or stages and attitudes of Peter's life, into chapters. It does not progress chronologically from event to event, be they unrelated, that the reader would soon feel themselves asking "who is he? and how does he relate?" It is excellently structured, it reads well. I give it a top notch rating.
Excellent book. Very well written. I cast no judgements on the author nor the narrator. It is an interesting book delving into the complicated mindset of Lawrence, his life and the way he changed others.
I am not sure about the title. Was he a hero? He did many things, many things people thought where impossible. But his heroism in arabia cast a shadow that he could not live up too. I enjoyed the audiobook very much, until he returned to England. After he returned to England, his war fatigue seemed to drive him to be completely useless. Chased by the media, shuffling from home to home. I could not help but feel that, after a period of rest, he should either settle down and start living, or get up and do something. After Arabia, he led an empty life.
He was not a hero all the time. But in our imperfect world. He did a fine job.
I loved it! I would recommend this to any listener. The author created a magnificent world full of intriguing possibilities, hinting at the world beyond the scenes. The narrator was one of the best readers i have ever come across. His accents are perfect and really immersed the listener into the world. Truly a grand piece of work.
