Entertaining and interesting, great narration!

I'm not sure why this was given such a low rating by one listener; I found this entertaining, well observed and a 'fun' medical murder mystery and curious travelogue, following the voyage of the cruise ship Koh i Nor travelling around the world in the 1960s. It might not set the world alight, and though Dr. Scott seems to be almost comically obsessed with breasts, it's a great window into the world of medical practice in the 1960s combined with a great journey around the world, and a fairly compelling murder mystery at its heart. Definitely worth a try out, don't let the drab cover put you off! The performance is wonderful, with a rich British accent, good voices and other accents thrown in. There is a little bit of patchiness in the audio quality at the beginning, but it soon passes. I loved it, overall! Refreshing and something hinting of a world lost to us in the 21st century.
