A great historical document...

Darwin's autobiography is a great historical document in which he opens the door to his day and also some of his contemporaries to the reader.

Personally I find Kevin Theis' way of narrating rather monotonous - but content wise the book was so much fun to listen to.

To me it was fun to find out that he liked parties and found Shakespeare (some of whose works I like a lot) "intolerably dull".

Also he describes his theory to some extent and explains his manner of writing. Recommended.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
