Attn: version 12 read by Scott Stephen

(4.5 stars)

Version 12 is read out by Scott Stephen & not by by Librivox volunteers. If this title of 'L.V.'has been chosen deliberately, I do apologise for 8that. But since I'm a volunteer as well, most people within the forum on Librivox prefer to have their name, (whether it's by their username or their original) to stamp their mark the world. I know for a fact that when the shoes on the other foot, I'm more than pleased to have my name advertised in an appropriate manner. 🎓🚢💎

Version 11 is best presentation, although accent is a bit difficult, still best version.
