Great Writing, Underwhelming Narration

Overall
5 out of 5 stars

Story

The speeches and essays are monumental pieces of work, and context is provided for anyone to glean the impact of a man that exemplified non violent courage, but some of the narration is underwhelming, showing too little energy to do justice to content that should fire up one's soul.

If you have already read Homo Deus, some of this is understandably repetitive, but there's plenty of mind opening wisdom in here!

Personally thought the essay on Terrorism was Gold.

Makes you want to bookmark every quote, even though it's deliberately useless. Textbook George Carlin.

unfortunately the book is let down by the narration, which is in the lifeless drawl of a museum audio tour

Brilliant thanks to Stephen Fry

Interesting mythology made immeasurably better for the narration and tongue in cheek guile of Stephen Fry.

Had me smiling right through!

Has that signature Rowling humour that Potterheads have learned to love. And of course, the delightful Eddie Redmayne. Not to be confused with the movie franchise though, it's built like an encyclopedia, not the story of Grindelwald's times.

Slow, but enjoyable

Great insight into the dichotomy of people's minds, wish they had translated the French bits
