I enjoyed this tale (based on a true story) of Edison and his quest to be recognised as the inventor of the lightbulb. It certainly makes history accessible and gave lots of detail about this period in history and the way people acted. Written as a novel it has an advantage over history books, but I found it rather dry and slow at times. The main story focuses on a young lawyer, Paul, who represents Westinghouse -the man up against Edison and the clear underdog from the start. A good listen, good but not great is my verdict. The narrator was good, solid & serious with enough variation to lift the text most of the time. Towards the end a few silly voices crept in but overall very good narration.
