    "Brilliantly written and brilliantly read."

    Plenty of humour, very evocative descriptions of wildlife and the comments on aboriginal paintings interesting and enlightening. Mix this with David Attenborough's excellent reading and you have a first class listen!

    Story
    "Sir David Attenborough"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If you've ever watched a nature documentary chances are you've seen and heard him before. You just don't get any better than this.


    What other book might you compare Quest under Capricorn to and why?

    all of his titles. Seriously. it's almost too meta to hear David Attenborough reading about David Attenborough.


    What does David Attenborough bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    his voice. No one else could have narrated this book. No one else should ever narrate this book. David should read EVERY book ever.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I was hooked from the first word and started it right over again after I heard the last.


    Any additional comments?

    There's a reason he's "Sir" David Attenborough
