    "The best by miles"

    Anyone with an interest in Natural History, has to pay homage to
    the Grand Master of our times. An excellent insight into the world of our very own naturalist.

    Story
    "Glorious"

    I listen to audiobooks before I sleep and quite often whilst I'm asleep too!

    I love Attenborough's literally style- it's all about the animals. Often coming from a time that is long gone, almost 1960s new presenter. Each story has a moral to it inevitably that relates to himself, yourself or the world in general.

    A simple pleasure in a world of complicated ones!

    "As you would expect from Attenborough, Brilliant"
    Would you listen to David Attenborough's New Life Stories again? Why?

    Have listened to it several times already, every story is interesting and his narrative takes you on a journey to the places he describes and you get such a clear image of what he is talking about.


    Any additional comments?

    His life is so interesting and his narration is heartfelt. An absolute gem of a book .

    "More Please!"

    I can never tire of listening to Sir David Attenborough's natural history experiences. The story of the migrating humming birds in USA is particularly charming. Enjoy.

    "Fascinating LIfe"
    Would you listen to David Attenborough's New Life Stories again? Why?

    What a fabulous career, loved the book/listen was also great to have been narrated by David Attenborough. Any one who is interested in natural history I would strongly recommend this, although if you have listen to a life on air there is quite a lot of overlap although a more condensed version, but still loved it
