Very enlightening and well written

The narration and story work perfectly together. It is wonderful to listen to a book that was obviously well researched and full of truth. As a Dr. Thompson fan I can tell the author had an admiration for Hunter, he did him justice with this great book. And did I mention the perfect narration? At times I felt like I was there at Owl Farm, I could only dream of it.
