A celebration of life and death.

Very hard to evaluate as this appears to be a brief programme to accompany an exhibition. Narration good, straightforward and fairly clinical, suitable for the information.
Rating given is simply to express my inability to judge if this does assist exhibition visitors as I have not attended. Not at all worthwhile if interest is in the man, not just some (unseen) pieces of his work.

Robotic Narration

The overall story was good, and I think I would have enjoyed the book if it weren't for the narrator. The narrator's delivery was robotic sounding and made the book difficult to follow and though the content was very interesting. All in all I would buy a book from this author again but I would get it in written form.

why?

I don't understand the need to narrate this. sorry.
the audio quality is poor.

I received this audiobook at my request and I voluntarily wrote a review.
