I strongly urge you to listen to the sample. The narrator takes liberal pauses with each punctuation mark (including commas) and talks at a pace that makes me feel like I am listening to my grandfather reminisce about his childhood. This is the first audible book out of thirty that I am seriously thinking about not finishing. I made it half way through and cannot bring myself to endure the torture of the second half.
The story itself (minus the narrator) is moderately interesting, but often loses its focus on its Tory theme and wanders into "Rebel" affairs.

I'm interested in the period and in the often untold stories, such as the role of Tory/Loyalist groups in fighting against independence. But the narrator's style made it hard to engage with the content - he had little animation, and every. sentence. or. clause. came. to. a. dead. stop. I've heard many other histories read with vigor and even emotion, and was disappointed in this.
