Sintesi dell'editore

One rainy morning in the winter of 1909, a man with an altogether average look about him quit his job at the London Morning Leader, kissed his wife and children goodbye, and took a train to Swansea in Wales, where he talked his way aboard a freighter bound for somewhere in the upper reaches of the Amazon. Three years later, Tomlinson published a book about his adventures. This book made him famous.

'The right good book,' says Mr. Tomlinson, 'is always a book of travel: it is about a life's journey.'

Good story, annoying narration

I have enjoyed reading a great many classic travel narration books spanning travel and exploration in the 18th and 19th century. This book is a really solid story and written with a splash of humor that reminded me of Twain. But, I found the his voice annoying which got in the way of the story. He read well but his vocal quality was off putting to me.

Good story, poor narration

This is a very entertaining and interesting story, particularly if you are familiar with some of the flora and fauna of the Amazon. But I might consider another production of this audiobook as the narrator's voice is highly distracting. His intonations seem out of place, and I find it hard to believe that he is the type of person to pull through such an arduous journey.

Better than Conrad?

Would you consider the audio edition of The Sea and the Jungle to be better than the print version?

I think it must be

What other book might you compare The Sea and the Jungle to, and why?

Heart of Darkness, naturally - travels up a river through a jungle...........

What does Frederick Davidson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

A sense of an intelligent person remembering extraordinary scenes. I wouldn't have bought this but for Davidson. I have heard Heart of Darkness with Branagh, but this is much less ponderous

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Carry on up the Amazon!

Any additional comments?

Unlike the other reviewers I think Davidson is the perfect narrator - he sounds very civilised and not a derring-do person! I have enjoyed all his narrations - he always brings a sense of humour to the tales
