Keith Stewart, a retiring and ingenious engineer, could not have been happier in his little house in the shabby London suburb of Ealing. There he invented the mini-motor, the six-volt generator, and the tiny Congreve clock. Then a chain of events sweeps him into deep waters and leads him to his happiest discovery yet.

One of my favorite audio books is Nevil Shutes A Town like Alice so I decided to give this one a go. A very enjoyable tale well narrated. I liked the character development and the flow of the tale. It is a nice change of pace to get away from death and sex and tales of people who leave no impression on you.
Trustee is one of those rare books that presents you with delightful characters, narration and story. Very enjoyable. I recommend it to everyone.
The Great Bridge; The Epic Story of the Building of the Brooklyn Bridge
Excellent diction and very well read.
How to keep an engineer turning pages.
Excellent narration of an excellent story, and characters you cared about.
The Good Earth by Pearl S Buck. While Trustee is not as BIG a story as the Good Earth, the characters and a basically simple story that is so well written that it captivates the listener just as much as any action thriller.
Everything. Easy to understand, each character voice was distinct and easy to follow.
His voice was very pleasant to listen to.
No, it wasn't a story you were in a hurry to get to the end of. The scenery along the way was too enjoyable.
This is one of my most favorite audible books. It is a very upbeat, hope filled story. The story line is plausible and interesting. I have recommended this book to several of my friends.
Both the characters and the story were interesting. A very easy read
I couldn't decide between Keith Stewart and Jack Donelly. They were both had a kind of simple wisdom and unassuming nature about them.
No...This was my first time
Wife, mother, geek, etc.
I was engrossed in reading this story for the span of two days. I loved the characters, Keith Stewart and Donnelley in particular. The talk does go technical, and I can't say I fully understood all that was described. But, the idea that a humble yet hardworking man has an adventure, was what captivated me. My late engineer father was recalled to my mind so many times, in the reading of this story. I recommend it for anyone who is technical, or at least wants to know what geeks were like in the 50s!
Myst/thrillers, some contemporary and ✨fun fantasies✨are my favorites but always open for a good story.
This was a great story of a good mans expedition to claim what was left to him after his sisters sudden death. He must travel from Europe to Tahiti with very little money. Because of his kindness to everyone, even strangers, he is gifted with unbelievable niceties. A good journey with many believable characters. A clean book with no violence, just a nice eventful story.
