Great Story Flawed
What did you love best about Explorers of the Nile?
I listened to this book in order to research Victorian Africa for a book I'm writing. The details were fascinating, heart-breaking. I was surprised to learn more about the way the English made such an impact on the development of Africa and contributed to the problems there today.
What didn???t you like about Clive Chafer???s performance?
The reader's voice is so deadpan that I thought at first it was computer generated. I became accustomed to it eventually but I don't think it contributed to my enjoyment of the story.

Have not been able to bring myself to finish
Is there anything you would change about this book?
The narrator! His voice is very clear, but so monotone that he could be reading the phone book.
Who was your favorite character and why?
The river itself. It's dangerous and beautiful and mysterious.
Would you be willing to try another one of Clive Chafer’s performances?
I'm pretty sure I will not. I think he could be a good narrator, but he needs to loosen up quite a bit.
Could you see Explorers of the Nile being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
Yes, the story actually is fascinating. I have no idea who would be starring. I am not a casting agent. I'm just reviewing an audiobook.
Any additional comments?
I would actually buy this book again if I could find a version with another narrator.
