edgy and well told

an excellent narration of a striking story about life beyond civilisation. as ever Waugh's humour is cut with a bittersweet edge.

a handful of dust by the same author would be a good read to follow.

The man who liked Dickens

Very interesting story and very well read by Leonard Nimoy..
Long enough to tell an involved plot, but brief enough to keep your interest all the way through to the end.. I enjoyed it very much.

A Haunting Tale

I really like this story and the way that Leonard Nimoy narrated it. Set in the wilds of South America during colonial times, it hauntingly captures the loneliness and isolation which western settlers must have felt. Very spooky too, with a surprise ending.
