Newscaster Narration

Good basic info on Ireland for such a short account. Regarding the narration, the only distraction for me was that he read it with a tone of voice as if he's reporting the news, rather than reading history.

Mind boggling in its ignorance of pronunciation

The gross incompetence of the narrative in pronunciation of the most basic words was insulting in the extreme.

Perfect if you want a brief history

The sound quality is terrible during chapters 7 and 8, but overall a good, quick read.
