the book is better

(3 stars)

This reading, while correctly pronounced, seems lifeless. It sounds like a recitation of facts. If the reader had said "quote" once in a while, the listener would have known that the material was Fuller's, not Howe's. That would be much more interesting.

Nicely read too. Good start to learning more about this region. It would be nice to see what else Howe wrote.
