I like Nigel Warburtons work but this was too simplified and the reading was too childish. (I only manage 30 minutes)

Loved it.

Wonderfully read eye witness of history. Real mining fever and hawian history with great humour.

Unusual plot told with wit and good humour. I wish the justice shown was real.

This utterly English, combination of erudite Ealing comedy, schoolboy thriller and fairytale gets better with each listening.

Narration destroys content

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment

Any additional comments?

This book is thoughtful if slightly superficial.It discusses important subjects but the narration is suited to cosmetic sales or historical novels. She tries to add inappropriate excitement and sexiness. Let the words convey the meaning.
