Listening to this unabridged recording of Theroux’s journey conveys the leisurely pace essential to the writer’s observations and adventures. The title is not new, and this enhances one’s sense of glimpsing a place in time. What will be particularly interesting to avid listeners is that this narration occured early in Keith’s career. There’s no mistaking his clear, softened British tones. However, he has matured and taken his craft to a higher plane. His style suits the Theroux journey; he’s an excellent guide for the circumnavigation of Great Britain, offering each of the regional accents with distinction.
