The smoothe voice of Frank Langella

I was originally just trying to find what Frank Langella was narrating. I happened to see this book and, a lover of historical prose, I was immediately thrilled by the combination of interesting story and understated narration. This book will seduce you, which is great because it truly is a great book.
