I would recommend only the print version. Kevin Stillwell's mispronunciations make me wince. How can he have been hired to read 67 books?!!!!
I keep listening to understand what London, Shanghai, Cairo, and other world capitals really FELT like before World War 1. The research is wide, including contemporary newspapers, diaries, guidebooks, music, and political tracts.
Someone fluent in English. And acquainted with German, Chinese, and other languages' pronunciations.
Probably not. The content is thorough and satisfying as it is.
Probably not. The Louise Penny book was perhaps the 10th in a series, and there are too many characters and too many plot threads that don't make sense. Many authors can write series book and yet give each book a sense of movement and closure. This one has neither. I could not get into it.
OK I guess. Mostly I didn't like the content.
