I was surprised that I enjoyed this book so much. I bought it on sale, and I saw many great reviews, but I figured those were the history buffs out there that read encyclopedias as children, likely. :0) But it was very inexpensive, so I bought it and listened. Wow. Very interesting and very quick-moving, I loved hearing history I knew told from the perspective of the most popular drink of the day/region. My 11 year old heard me talking to my husband about it and snagged the book on his iPod. He really liked it as well, listening to it over the weekend. Very good book.
Monte Cristo is one of my favorite books of all times--I read it every year or so. This recording was very pleasant to listen to, and John Lee used just the right amount of accent in his characters voices so that you felt like you were there, and could follow this sometimes-complicated story.
Don't hesitate to download this book. It is SO worth more than one credit.
