Fascinating & beautifully narrated.

This was the first title I purchased once I had subscribed to 'Audible'. The narration by Danny Glover (who's understanding, diction and pronunciation of the Xhosa language is exemplary), made for an entertaining, empathic and educational listen. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute and will return to the book time and again.

Long Walk to Freedom

Danny Glover was a fantastic narrator so much so that I could not believe that it was him! I bought the book over ten years ago and never got a chance to read it so it was brilliant having it read to me. It gives me a greater understanding of what Neslon Mandela went through and a time line of what happened when. Will definitely listen to it again!!
