Tapestry of an age
The more extensive one's education or reading, the more enjoyable this will be. Written in 1912, the author expects the reader to have a passing knowledge of the touchstones of Western culture. Occasionally I was adrift, but all in all, it was rewarding because he weaves so many strands into an understanding of the times and culture. He does not "talk down." I feel enriched, although sometimes it was a battle to stick with it.

A beautiful listen
This audio book is beautiful to listen to; written in a style of prose one doesn't hear much these days. The author is very much a part of the book, and methinks not entirely impartial, but illuminates the period in a fascinating and very engaging way.
