Glorious

I listen to audiobooks before I sleep and quite often whilst I'm asleep too!

I love Attenborough's literally style- it's all about the animals. Often coming from a time that is long gone, almost 1960s new presenter. Each story has a moral to it inevitably that relates to himself, yourself or the world in general.

A simple pleasure in a world of complicated ones!

Always interesting!

I could listen to David Attenborough all day. His life has been fascinating and the stories he tells are always interesting and insightful.
