Mr Bryson has done it again! A thoughly enjoyable listen.
Read by the man himself with his subtly anglicized American accent.
A thought provoking romp through history with just a touch of wit and plenty of wisdom!
Very entertaining to anyone who has an interest in the history of the more everyday things in life. Only one critisism - I do wish Americans could pronounce words correctly!

A rip roaring ride through 17th century France with four dashing heros and a motley crew of villians!
Well recorded,and excellently read by Micheal Page.
A classic adventure tale with plenty of plot twists-not always with the outcome you might expect!
Highly recommended.

Mr Marr really has come up trumps.

On the surface the subject matter may seem dry and boring and I'm sure in the wrong hands it definately could be.
However, Andrew Marr lends this book his own indomitable flair and passion. His unbiased narrative is both informative and interesting. The whole book reads like an epic screenplay across the century.
Andrew Marr really is a natural and I highly recommend his book.
If you are in two minds about this book I urge you to give it a go - you won't be disappointed!

This audiobook is very long - but not at all tedious!
The narratrive is fast paced, well read and a pleasure to listen to.
This epic page turner really did have me enthralled and rooting for the antihero of this classic tale.
Highly recommended!

Superb. An absolute classic! This thought provoking tale of social engineering is made even more accessible by the masterly narration of Micheal York. Sheer auditory pleasure!
