Great book, terrible narration

3 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 26-10-11

These brilliant journals are delivered in a wooden monotone. Such a shame. A more lively, sympathetic reading would bring a fascinating period of British-American history to life.

Perhaps better on paper

2 out of 5 stars

Two stars is perhaps a little unfair - the content is interesting and worth a read. It's probably better in paper form though as it's far too easy for the mind to wander from the detail of the narrative without the text to concentrate the mind.

Great narration for a ripping yarn

I chose Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie because Emilia Fox is such a wonderful narrator. Lucky for me, the story she narrated was entertaining and even riveting.
