Good narration of a dull and lazy authorial effort
A dry, dull, informationally light and largely unconvincing wander through the history of leisure.
Interesting bits at the beginning regarding the development of the calendar and weekdays, but little else to interest besides - too few facts, not enough detail to give colour or interest. I was hoping for something more lively that would teach me interesting things, but I didn't find it here.
Very well read - I can't fault Nadia May, she did her best with boring material. It just felt like an uncharacteristically lazy effort on the author's part.
Also, really poor sound quality, with some echoing and a very "distant AM radio" edge to it - poorly dubbed from an original 80s recording I would guess.
Overall, very disappointed.
