As with previous reviews, starts out well but the ending lets it down (comes across as a little rushed).

Very informative. The lecturer certainly knew his stuff. I will have to re-listen, there's so much information in these lectures

second half of the story was a lot better than the first half, making the book a bit hard to relate to, at first. a few irreverent moments make it a little more entertaining than most, at least it doesn't take itself too seriously. while I thought the narrator good, overall there were moments the reading came across as a bit pompous and sometimes I felt they emphasised the wrong word in the sentence and gave the whole thing a different meaning, something that was supposed to be funny coming out as serious or the joke being lost. All in all pretty good, though. Will be following up with the next instalment.

A good story with lots of imagination, but too long, too many diversions. It starts to get annoying.

Narration was done well, some parts, excellent. Having two narrators helped define the story. I can't fault the storyline or the way it played out, I just felt that some characters deserved more and that the ending was a bit weak, otherwise a fantastic story and well worth it.

An hilarious account of Australia's early European history, makes you wonder how anyone survived to make Australia what it is today. The narrator's funny attempts at foreign accents helps identify the different protagonists in the story but generally, with all the names involved, it does get a little confusing. Apart from that, it's a great listen. Listened to it twice.
