I felt as though I was sitting around the fire, listening to him tell the story with a whiskey in his hand and a glint of the highlands in his stare. Not only did I feel engaged in the story, but I listened to it again as soon as it was over just to make sure I didn't miss anything again. My only complaint was that it ended too soon. I could have listened for hours more.
To be honest, I would listen to him read the dictionary and feel he was weaving a mighty tale.
