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.
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.
