A great story that feels interrupted.
Narration: the narrator throughout was charming and engaging. His ability to make other accents seem his natural born accent was a credit to him... Most of the time.
Unfortunately there were uncomfortable moments in narration. His voicing of women and Japanese men was very awkward and felt off with the descriptions of the characters. I don't see this a a blemish upon the actor himself, but it would have been reasonable to give him a supporting cast rather than rely too heavily on him.
Story: I enjoyed the story, but that in itself made some of the downsides more notable. The story of Sybil Gerard was admittedly boring compared to Oliphant and Mallory, and the story of Oliphant feels like it has been cut short long before it's time. Still, it provided me with hours of enjoyment.
