    Story
    (97)

    An upstart French duke who sets out to conquer the most powerful and unified kingdom in Christendom. An invasion force on a scale not seen since the days of the Romans. One of the bloodiest and most decisive battles ever fought.

    Jefferson says: "A Balanced, Entertaining, and Informative History"
    "Great book if you can get past the narrator"

    Story
    If you could sum up The Norman Conquest in three words, what would they be?

    Morris has really done his research here and presents a thoughtful, thorough and supremely interesting account of England before, during and after the Conquest. So the book itself is fantastic.
    The narrator, however, is flat-out godawful. He has a pleasing enough voice but he reads the entire book in the same monotone sing-song. A really second-rate, poor job. I had to get past the narrator to finish the otherwise wonderful book.


    What other book might you compare The Norman Conquest to and why?

    Dan Jones' "The Plantagenets".


    Would you be willing to try another one of Frazer Douglas’s performances?

    No I would not listen to him again.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    One man changed history...The Conqueror
