If you haven't listened to earlier books in this series you may not be disappointed withis one however I hated the narration. Almost no distinction in voice for each character, seemed very dull in comparison to earlier books in the series naration and I hated the way the old English town names had been changed to modern. I found it hard to listen to since I love the author and all I could do was think about how I hated the naration and unnecessary changes. And to top it off the historical notes at the end of the book were missed.
The best parts of these books are Bernard Cornwell's fabulous one liner wit and also the description of the battle scenes are very vivid.
Horrible horrible horrible - nuff said !
Mainly disappointment due to the naration differences from the earlier series books. Difficult to follow the story with such monotone reading and I wanted to scream every time Uhtred came from Bamburgh and not Bebbanburg
Why the changes. I was so excited to see the book in Audible, I can't say I regret buying it since I love the series so much but was left feeling cheated, what a shame.
