Anachronistic, with a weak narrator
- G. Steyn
A good read.
The smooth continuity of the changes from on line of thought to another. It does not dwell on any one subject too long, yet continues to weave together, the several tasks assigned to different players.
Any good reader can improve a mediocre book, and a poor reader can damage a good book. In this case however, one has both an excellent reader and a very good story-line. The quality of this plot, along with this reader, made it a 'good listen'.
