This story has everything you could want in a Dr Who story: a wonderful mystery with sufficient twists to keep you on your toes, witty comments from the Dr, lively characters, and a fantastic villain. The narrator is great and tells an exciting story. I listened to this one twice in a row.
The narration by Jim Dale is superb and the plot is interesting but I found I couldn't make myself care about any of the characters. They seemed lifeless and bland.
The book tells a fascinating story but does so in a manner that some might find a tad on the boring side. The author often recounts long lists of names and orders of battles and can get dull at times. The book is almost entirely focused on military conquests and offers little insight into Alexander's personal or political life. Still, interesting enough for me to finish.
