      Richard Francis Burton by Rischgitz, 1864 Narrated by Patrick TullAt ~ five hours this is just right to savour the intrigue and culture. Thank you M!

      Whilst I was waiting for Patrick O'Brian's The Surgeon's Mate to arrive, I was casting about for some other audiobook choices at my local library.

      This is a hilarious introduction to the narcissistic 19th Century adventurer-doctor Sic Richard Burton. This brief Audible edition of "unabridged selections" is bookended with additional material by experts giving Burton's exploits context and setting them in the chronology of his large life. Seeming like the sort of rooles Clint Eastwood, Tommy Lee Jones, and Liam Neeson portray on the big screen, Burton later in life seeks to prove himself in a rash personal dare. in the 1850s impersonating a [...]

      Enjoyed this audio version of excerpts from Burton's book. Fascinating stories told in his droll style and narrated by the excellent Patrick Tull. I'd like to read more of Burton's works.
