This important audiobook is the second volume of Mandela's memoirs, which were left unfinished when he died in 2013. It's more a collection of speeches than a finished narrative, but it gives us a fuller picture of this extraordinary man. Narrator Adrian Lester takes immediate control of the work, lending it a serious, consequential, worldly air. His Jamaican-tinged British accent envelopes the text and guides listeners through Mandela's amazing journey. Lester also has the ability to transform his voice into Mandela's in the middle of a sentence and then go back to his impeccably precise reading. His pacing keeps the story fresh, and he uses his vocal elasticity to convey complex emotions. The result is a wonderful audio experience.
