Jeremy Hardy is a good storyteller and has a good voice but I found the story boring. It was also hard to keep track without having a family tree to look at.
This is a ramble through Jeremy 's process of ancestor-tracing. It's beautiful to listen to and made me both joyful and sad in places. Hearing it read by the author gave it more meaning. Loved every moment...going to listen again on my next long car journey.
Jeremy Hardy is a very funny guy, and although the odds are stacked against him trying to describe the intricasies of a family tree in a non visual format like audio, he kept me entertained the whole time. It was a pleasure listening to all of the challenges involved in getting the right information, the emotions he encountered on every step of his journey, he descriptions of his and others foibles, and his deep honesty.
Wow, a frightfully boring book by a guilt-ridden person. Hardy's writing is as mundane and morose as his reading. An occasional intersting anecdote, but this sad sack of a writer fails almost continually to evoke any interest or passion in his family's own story.
