Worthy but dull,
This review is from: Darwin's Origin of Species: A Biography (Books That Changed the World) (MP3 CD)
Despite being familiar with this subject, I found the audiobook hard going. It's one of the most important and exciting stories in human history, but this reading makes it dull and unengaging. The narrator has a flat voice which sounds like computer generated airport announcements and fails to bring any passion or interest to the story. The continued listing of dates does nothing to relieve the monotone and breaks up the argument time and time again. A great disappointment.
