In all my years, although I knew of the Mutiny on the Bounty, I'd never actually read about it, watched a film or read the book.
The account was very interesting, I enjoyed the level of detail all the way through and it was without doubt, an incredible feat of survival.
I generally like the narrators way of talking, some times, he seemed to hesitate over names, dates, bearings etc but that just gave the impression of a ship captain checking his logbook. It actually worked well.
However this audiobook is badly let down by the editing. I counted three or four times where the audio either faded away or just cut off in the middle of a sentence. I lost count of the number of times the narrator stopped talking, there was a silence and then he started again, in a different tone of voice, only to repeat the previous sentence. I can only imagine this was when the recording session was paused and then continued. A simple re-listen to the source material and some editing would have resolved this.
I appreciate this is an old recording but I'd hope these sort of mistakes would be resolved.
