His narrative, deeply personal yet objective, documents the voyage and Bligh’s relationships to his men, and thereby exposes the oft debated question of what manner of man he really was.

An enjoyable listen but let down by the editing
In all my years, although I knew of the Mutiny on the Bounty, I'd never actually read about it, watched a film or read the book.
The account was very interesting, I enjoyed the level of detail all the way through and it was without doubt, an incredible feat of survival.
I generally like the narrators way of talking, some times, he seemed to hesitate over names, dates, bearings etc but that just gave the impression of a ship captain checking his logbook. It actually worked well.
However this audiobook is badly let down by the editing. I counted three or four times where the audio either faded away or just cut off in the middle of a sentence. I lost count of the number of times the narrator stopped talking, there was a silence and then he started again, in a different tone of voice, only to repeat the previous sentence. I can only imagine this was when the recording session was paused and then continued. A simple re-listen to the source material and some editing would have resolved this.
I appreciate this is an old recording but I'd hope these sort of mistakes would be resolved.
