This was a good, fast moving story. I also think that the narator did a fantastic job. Especially with the different name pronunciations. He really helped you get into the time period. Unfortunately, I cannot help but feel that there was depth missing from the abridged version. As interesting as the story was, it often felt like just a combination of historical events (true or not.) I am looking forward to the next in the series, though it is abridged also. If it is as good as this, I will really look towards the third in the series, which is the first that Audible offers (at least to me) unabridged. It is interesting though, that before I became a member, it seems that this book is available unabridged. Be that as it may, don't let it discourage you from listening to this book. Bernard Cornwell seems to have a special ability to make history come to life.
