Africa, 1863. Sir Richard Francis Burton is an explorer, a linguist, a scholar, and the king's agent - or is he a puppet being manipulated by forces he cannot understand? A race to find the source of the Nile! Algernon Charles Swinburne is a famous young flame-haired poet, thrill-seeker, and follower of the Marquis de Sade. Here they are, back to where the adventure began. It is 1863, but not the one it should be. Time has veered wildly off course, and moves are being made that will lead to a devastating world war.

Where does Expedition to the Mountains of the Moon rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Quite high just ashamed about the ending.

Would you recommend Expedition to the Mountains of the Moon to your friends? Why or why not?

Yes. But only if they have read the other books. It's full of action and thought provoking ideas.

Which character – as performed by Gerard Doyle – was your favourite?

All of them. gerard Doyle does a very good job on all the characters voices.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

There was a few parts that made me smile and one real sad part. One of the characters sacrificed their life for a plan to work. It brought a tear to my eye.

Any additional comments?

The story was good full of action but it had the finish of a ironic short story. Plus can get a bit confusing with all the theories on time travel.
