If you liked 'A Christmas Carol ' then this is not bad and it is very much Dickens at his best....

All very interesting though short.. Short is actually good for those who enjoy a taste of the 'shop's or those who just like tidbits for general knowledge...

Excellent

The book is Dickens so I don't feel the need to say that it is definitely one of his best... The narrator has made it so much more for me with the versatility and fluency that make it believable for the listener.. I felt I was almost there... Bravo, Bravo....

Excellent...

Having been lucky enough to spend some years in Egypt in the early '00s this book brings back such wonderful memories... Very authentic and definitely a good evaluation of the Egyptian generosity and openness to friendly, interested foreigners back then... My colloquial Arabic is not based on a learning of high Arabic and is almost forgotten now through disuse but stirred restlessly hearing the words used here.... I am sad that anyone is led to believe bad things of Islam because of the few extremists who perpetrate these acts of pure barbarism upon fellow humans.... A very poignant and direct book which is extremely well narrated and very much worth listening to.... Thank you Frank Gardner for putting your experiences on paper... I wish all the happiness you deserve Sir

Narrated to perfection... what can I say but that I am glad not to have listened on the Tube... they'd have locked me away for giggling!! can't find a fault... maybe I'm accepting my sense of humour as one who has a long memory 😉...

Difficult to imagine a comparable ....

I have to say I find it difficult to find a comparison, though doubtless others have their own... The Book is constructed well and flows like a Stream of fact, fictitious as it may be. The rendition by the narrator is wonderful... If you hate the idea of a 'true Classic' then try this one and see...

wonderful...

I am so glad to have taken this book... obviously Dickens is the consumate storywriter we know to be a classic in the literary annals of Britain but I have to say I think you'd have to look hard to better the narrator for this book. Bravo, bravo!
