Gerard Doyle's narration aptly reflects the author--a man of strong convictions who chose to chart his own course. As author Mark Boyle came to the conclusion that the things he owned were beginning to own him, he took drastic steps that many of us would find unthinkable: He renounced modern technologies and opted for a slower existence closer to the earth on Blasket Island, off the coast of Ireland's Dingle peninsula. Doyle brings an Irish lilt to the narration, adopting a relaxed and unhurried pace, like that of the author, who has found that he's gotten closer to what matters to him. It is evident, both in the writing and in Doyle's gently self-assured reading, that Boyle feels better about his life for having made the change. S.E.G.
