    (4)

    Ilustrado opens with Crispin Salvador, lion of Philippine letters, dead in the Hudson River. His young acolyte, Miguel, sets out to investigate the author's suspicious death and the strange disappearance of an unfinished manuscript---a work that had been planned not just to return the once-great author to fame but to expose the corruption behind the rich families who have ruled the Philippines for generations.

    Robert says: "Challenging but interesting listen"
    "Not what I expected but a great listen"
    Overall

    I thought I was getting another mystery story, instead I was rewarded with a history of the Philippines and a look at a culture most Americans never study. As for the reader I listened to his reading of Cryptonomicon and find his accents interesting.

    This book is part memoir, part philosophical text, part study in human behavior, from one of America's greatest literary treasures. Narrated masterfully by Bronson Pinchot, this audiobook also includes Twain’s popular short story, "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County".

    Avid Reader and Listener says: "Good stuff!"
    "Awesome"
    Overall

    Not only are the facts of this American heroes life interesting but the narration of Pinchot made me feel like I was listening to Mark Twain tell me the story from the stage. An easy listen that also shows a simpler but more complex time.
