'The right good book,' says Mr. Tomlinson, 'is always a book of travel: it is about a life's journey.'

I think it must be
Heart of Darkness, naturally - travels up a river through a jungle...........
A sense of an intelligent person remembering extraordinary scenes. I wouldn't have bought this but for Davidson. I have heard Heart of Darkness with Branagh, but this is much less ponderous
Carry on up the Amazon!
Unlike the other reviewers I think Davidson is the perfect narrator - he sounds very civilised and not a derring-do person! I have enjoyed all his narrations - he always brings a sense of humour to the tales
"Good story, annoying narration"
I have enjoyed reading a great many classic travel narration books spanning travel and exploration in the 18th and 19th century. This book is a really solid story and written with a splash of humor that reminded me of Twain. But, I found the his voice annoying which got in the way of the story. He read well but his vocal quality was off putting to me.
"Good story, poor narration"
This is a very entertaining and interesting story, particularly if you are familiar with some of the flora and fauna of the Amazon. But I might consider another production of this audiobook as the narrator's voice is highly distracting. His intonations seem out of place, and I find it hard to believe that he is the type of person to pull through such an arduous journey.
