This is a special book. Read idiosyncratically by the author, it has depth, humor and abundant originality.
A story of astounding imagination, of sympathetic characters, and impeccable writing.
The style is impeccable and the twists of the story never cease, though everything comes together and makes sense.
The view into modern Ethiopian history and politics is a major plus.
The writing is very clear and I got it the first time.
Some of the histories by David McCullough. Well told stories and informative.
Clarity and natural expression, rhythm.
I take joy in learning.
One thing I liked was the way the history was told within the context of other 18th century events in Europe. The scope if this book is quite broad, though, spanning virtually the entire century, and I'd have liked some more depth here and there. So I am left inspired to hear more.
Maybe. I don't usually listen to the same book twice.
3 narrators are very realistic without being overly dramatic.
