    " Kind of interesting little book. I like RLS and he is such a good writer, that I enjoyed this more than if another writer had chronicled his tale of emigration.

    " I listened to this book on Librivox.org. The reader was very hard to understand and she made the book BORING. I bet it would be a much more interesting book to actually read. Unfortunately I have no desire to try and read this book again. "
