A serious well balanced treatment of the subject.
I just finished G.J Meyers "The Tudors" which was brilliantly written although scathing in its treatment of everyone after Henry VII. I was searching for a book that might lend some balance. Instead I was rewarded by writing that would have been more suitable in children's literature. Character development was superficial at best. The physical descriptions ranged on for what seemed an eternity.
Nelson Runger is an exceptional narrator. However I have to question if he was the best choice for a book dealing with Tudor England. It was difficult connecting with the period with his voice as the vehicle of transmission. Perhaps it was a lack of imagination on my part or my growing frustration with the text that soured me on the narration. I have in the past purchased a book in which I was luke warm on the strength of a sample of his narration alone.
I really couldn't be fair. The book made me cringe to the point that I could not finish it.
It was the loss of a credit and eight hours I will never get back.
