Interesting but...

• the narrator did a fine job. however, there's a "problem" with how the narration is edited: it keeps on pausing after each page. at first, it's bearable, but after a couple of pages in, i couldn't help but feel unnerved.

• some of the details provided conflict with those provided by other sources i've read/listened to regarding the infamous escape. but that's to be expected, i suppose, as all rely on secondhand information mostly.

Fine for free

Listened for free. Would have been disappointed had I paid for it. Story was fine.
