Addicted to Audible since 2009
The audio version of this book definitely plays out well. Great narration and overall this is just an outstanding story on how the ruined civilation of Troy began the next great dynasty that would become the Roman Empire.
Great story and terrific translation. Unfortunately, the narrator seems to have mistakenly undertaken an onstage Shakespearean performance rather than an audiobook narration. You can almost feel the spittle on your face as the narrator overdramatically renders the speakers. I agree with the other reviewers, read this magnificent book and wait for the next audiobook version.
I believe some books are better read than listened to --this is one of them. The story is great, but it is difficult to follow when read to. Perhaps it is the accent.
My name is Laz O. I'm a firefighter. I enjoy listening to books on tape. I've been hooked since the first one. Enjoy!
I thought listening to this book would be as interesting as listening to The Iliad, The Odyssey, or Dante's Inferno, but boy was I mistaken. I haven't read this novel, but if it is a great book, this narrator kills it. I was bored to death. I could not finish the audiobook. I am pretty fair, and try to give every audiobook the benefit of the doubt, but I could not.
