Reviews

(4.5 stars)

The book is fun and interesting but not extraordinary. That said, I will look for more by the author because it is not tedious. The narration does make it better. David Wales has a reading style all his own which accords some books more interest than they would have otherwise. Thank you.

David Wales is an excellent reader. He has a very unique style. He has read some of my favorite books. The two elements that ruin a narration are reading too fast and producing a poor recording. 5 Stars for David Wales.
