Accent!

Why choose an American narrator for this British history story? His mispronunciations grated so badly ( it’s « Worrick » not « War-wick ») that I switched off after 5 mins. Bad decision, Audible.

Performance :(

the reader's performance almost completely distracted me from the story, sounding robotic at times, the female roles were almost comically bad

Worst Narration Ever!

Could not finish...the narrator was the reason why. Authors should run from this narrator if you want you book listened to.

slow story, but interesting history

I listened to this entire book while traveling 18 hours across the Country. it was good company on the drive and gives different perspectives on people living in times of knights.
