Very good but a few flaws!
on 5 July 2009
This hour long perspective is excellent in many ways but there are two or three flaws - one of which would be easy to fix! The narrator's voice is not a voice you want to listen to for an hour, he sounds not bothered at times. Also some of Martin's best known speeches are read by the narrator rather than delivered by Martin with the passion and fervour he had - this is presumably because of copyright laws. So to hear excerpts of the 'I have a dream' speech delivered in an understated drawl is a bit of a shame!
On the whole this is excellent though - Martin's life held up a mirror to the unpleasantness of the prejudice that is in most people and his struggles were heroic and extraordinary.
