Listening to the author read his autobiographical, if perhaps somewhat novelistically enhanced, story of his boyhood adventures aboard the ship "Oronsay," is possibly the most rewarding audible experience I've had, certainly in my top five audiobooks. The pacing is perfect, and even though Ondatjee doesn't "do voices" for different characters, you practically always know who is speaking by the intonation and context. I so like this audiobook I"m going to buy the book to savor it again as a read, but I highly recommend this audiobook.
A boys sea voyage changes everyone aboard.
