    75 yr old MWF. I like historical novels with more history than story. Audiobooks shouldn't have too many characters.

    "The Poetry of Scotland"

    I just wish the readers would announce the title and author of each poem, and the name of the reader. Otherwise, it's a delightful book.

    I live in Auckland, New Zealand. I was born in Wanganui in 1929. I studied Art at Wellington Technical College. I was a trained perfumery and flavouring chemist, and the Managing Director of "Associated New Zealand Liqueurs Limited" for 14 years... Now retired. Whew! What a trip!

    Story
    "A must for Burns Day"

    It is a good mix of authors and reads with everything well read. Pro and a con is that it's a series of poems with minimal introduction or commentary. There is no interference with the poems but I would also like to learn more about them too.

    "Trip down memory lane"

    poems from my youth. Good selection, some better read than others which had a few words more anglicised than my recalled ones, but overall ok
