This biography presents the life of Winston Churchill's father, focusing on his political activities. Sounding like a Cambridge professor with an upper-class pedigree, David Case reads with a formal English voice; he sounds far more stodgy than Winston Churchill sounded in those recordings from his final years. Case elongates the final syllables at the end of each phrase. He does, however, speak clearly and never mispronounces a name or place. The work would likely be enjoyed by those seriously interested in nineteenth-century English history or Winston Churchill. M.L.C. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 01]
