A wonderful perspective of first settlement!

Lieutenant Tench's vocabulary and expression is two hundred years before our time. It took a while and quite a bit of concentration to get my head into his language. I suspect that reading this book would be even harder than listening to the audiobook. Nevertheless, I thoroughly enjoyed his perspective on the first fleet and first settlement and the authenticity of his language from that time enhances the story.
