    After the long period of cultural decline known as the Dark Ages, Europe experienced a rebirth of scholarship, art, literature, philosophy, and science, and began to develop a vision of Western society that remains at the heart of Western civilization today.

    "excellent read"
    Overall

    Cahill does a superb job teaching history without the taint of student/teacher. It is after all, entertainment and enlightenmment. Try this! You'll be glad you did.

    July 2005. In the Pyrenees mountains near Carcassonne, Alice, a volunteer at an archaeological dig stumbles into a cave and makes a startling discovery: two crumbling skeletons, strange writings on the walls, and the pattern of a labyrinth; between the skeletons, a stone ring, and a small leather bag.

    Sara says: "Terrible Listening Experience"
    "Not Recommended"
    Overall

    An audio book has two components, which make it either a good listen or bad, or somewhere in between. The writer has to have a good story and understand how to write but the story alone is not enough to hold the reader's attention. And if the writing is poor, the narration is tough . . . to follow and to engage.

    This book has two flaws: horrihble writing and terrible narration. To give the narrator the benefit of the doubt, perhaps it's the writing, but in any event, if you respect what a good author and good narrator do, leave this be.

    My suggestion is this writer spend a little time studying the craft and that the editor who bought the book be exiled to some land where the written word is banned.
