    "Listen to the sample first"

    There may be book here, but I couldn?t get past the reader to hear it. Davidson?s narration is unbearably self-important and snobbish; his characterizations absurd caricatures. He may have his audience, but it does not include this fan of the Age of Sail.

    "Words"

    I gave Westward Ho four stars. Two for the quality of the words and two for the volume

    "Westward Ho, Jeeves!"

    The narrator's languid and urbane delivery is as completely at odds with the notion of a vibrant and daring tale of Elizabethan derring-do as can be imagined. It might be perfect for PG Wodehouse or Evelyn Waugh, but is completely miscast here. I gave up after about an hour. Very disappointing.
