Donovan reads Hesse

Donovan made for a refreshing narrator, with his soft, dulcid tones, interspersed with guitar chords as emphasis. My only criticism, if any, would be his tendency to trail off his sentences in places, making them difficult to hear clearly, but it could be more down to the actual recording volume, but he can be forgiven regardless. I enjoyed it immensely, and I hope Donovan does more Hesse, or even Kahlil Gilbran, whose stories would suit his style.
