    Great narrator to accompany a book that far outperforms its movie.

    The book was a great disappointment. Half the scenes were 100% unnecessary, the ending was lame, etc. BUT the voice actor (narrator) was great.

    Good book, it's really old now but it is still good. It is told almost like a bedtime story or tall tale.

    Enjoyed book. Movie and TV series adaptations use Welles’s story very well. I like the ending where he calls out preparedness for the future. We don’t think of that often in real life as I look on this book in the midst of covid19

    Listening to this classic story was constantly ruined by the misspoken words from the American narrator. Time and again I had to think twice about what he'd just said only to realise the word he actually meant. e.g. navies (as in road building navies) being pronounced as though they were sea based ships navies !? Constantly irritated by this throughout this story.
