... this reader should NOT "do" voices! The accents are awful! And even at "Slower" on my iPod, he's still in too much of a hurry. The book is a favorite, but I wish I hadn't spent the money on this reading. I agree with the reviewer who's going to avoid other books performed by this reader.
This is a really fascinating book, apparently very well researched, well-written, and very entertaining as well. It's a shame that the reader doesn't seem to understand the significance of paragraphs in written English. She spaces every sentence in the book exactly the same distance for the previous one regardless whether the ideas in them are connected in any way whatsoever. It's VERY distracting from a history that deserves much better. The book is worth putting up with the shortcomings of the performance, anyway.
