I have been listening to books on tape for over 20 years. Starting with audio tapes, then CD's and now downloads.
The writing style of the Victorian years vs. today makes it tough to keep interested in. I think if the same story was updated by an exciting type author that would be great.
He did a good job with the material he had to work with
Because of the English Victorian writing it seems like the reader is a bit ahead of the start waiting for it to catch up. The writing takes so long to get to the point.
It iS exciting to realize that this author and authors like him built the English empire and gave boys the inspiration to go to foreign lands of the empire.
