    "Fingernails on a blackboard...."

    I cannot stress enough to anyone interested in this book that they listen to several minutes of the sample before they buy.

    Unfortunately, Audible would not let me review just the narrator; as for the content of the book, I'm going to let my Kindle read me the free ebook version of this instead - it has to sound better than this.

    "LIsten first! I wish I had!"

    Goodness knows I wish this young reader all the best, but Thomas Troward was NOT a good choice for his artistic style. Troward's writing is extremely deep and ponderous. It takes all you have just to keep up with the somewhat elaborate and old-fashioned vocabulary. But what he has to convey is so important, it's worth the effort.
    I think a man or woman with a more mature voice, well versed in proper pronunciation at least of the English language, let alone the French and Latin quotes Troward throws around, (and without the impediment of what sounds like an occasional smack at chewing gum or perhaps a lollipop), would have been a better choice.
    Mr Cousin's talent would have been better served with far, far lighter fare than this book. As a young character in any of Dicken's lighter works, or a Wodehouse-style domestic, or a even a Hobbit, he would shine. But letting him at Troward was a judgement error of epic proportions.
    The fact that I must listen to this many times to get the true gist of what the author was trying to teach makes it that much more trying.

    "Douglas J. Langer"

    This book in my opinion was excellent, there were points I had to replay for clear understanding from complex thought. overall I think it is very informative and above average in its content.
