    35 stars rounded down for the narrationI listened to this book in audio format and though I actually thought that the narrator did a nice job acting out the story his voice was a real stumbling block for me I looked up the age of the narrator Simon Prebble and he is in his mid 70s He sounds like he is in his mid 70s While most other reviewers love his narration of this story I thought he sounded much too old for the MC
