    Against a teeming canvas of Borgia politics, Niccolò Machiavelli and Leonardo da Vinci come together to unmask an enigmatic serial killer, as we learn the secret history behind one of the most controversial works in the western canon, The Prince. Traveling across an Italy torn apart by war, they will enter a labyrinth of ancient superstition and erotic obsession to discover at its center a new face of evil - and a truth that will shake the foundations of western civilization.

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This is the first time I stop listening to a book because it was not a pleasant experience. I agree with some of the reviewers that Carlotta's accent is not quite the problem, but her lack of passion when reading. It feels like she's reading the classifieds section on the newspaper!. I wish the whole book was read by John Lee, then maybe the story would be actually understandable. Sorry Carlotta, don't quit your day job.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Again the long intro narrated by Damiata just kills the story. I don't like over acting on the narration but Carlotta went the opposite direction and just ended my interest.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of the narrators?

    John Lee. John Lee and maybe John Lee. Just kidding. You guys have so many good female narrators that I didn't even think that you had a bad one. Well, you found her!! Sorry Carlotta.


    Any additional comments?

    Enough said.

    Cotton Malone retired from the high-risk world of elite operatives to lead the life of a rare-book dealer. But his quiet existence is shattered when he receives an anonymous e-mail: "You have something I want. You're the only person on earth who knows where to find it. If I don't hear from you, you will be childless." His ex-wife confirms that their teenage son has been kidnapped, and it becomes clear that those responsible will stop at nothing to get what they want: the lost library of Alexandria.

    Glenda says: "Very Entertaining"

    Overall

    I enjoyed the story, but I almost stopped listening to the book because the narration is sooooo terrible. There were times in the book that I couldn't tell what character was talking because they all sound the same. Other times it feels like William Shatner as Captain Kirk reading to you. If over acting is possible with narration...it's done here.
