While a very thorough and well argued review of post-war transport policy in general, and railway policies in particular, this academic thesis was truly heavy going.
I am left with the two questions: how was this book selected as an audiobook; why wasn't it abridged?
While the reader was very competent he has an annoying way of emphasizing the letter "t" by almost spitting it. It became a distraction .
What did you like most about Last Trains?
This is a scholarly and detailed analysis of changes to the railways in Britain. The writer has researched his subject well and presented his case clearly, objectively and at considerable length.
What other book might you compare Last Trains to, and why?
Christian Wolmar's writing about rail is the closest although not a true parallel.
Which scene did you most enjoy?
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Hardly although to me it was an engrossing subject but it is a book one could return to.
