Narrator Peter Jay Fernandez has an especially interesting task with this audiobook. He has to tell 50 different stories on topics as wide ranging as art, literature, science, politics, and history, these being the author's interests and passions. Happily, Fernandez is up to the task. He has a deep, formal-sounding voice that he uses to keep these stories interesting and alive. He is required to speak in many tongues, which he does admirably, and he has to approach each essay with a subtly different style. At times, he's jovial and at others, somber, but his consistent reading and credible accents and pronunciations make this audiobook a worthwhile listen.
