I really liked this translation of the ancient Greek, especially since it is so hard to translate. I did, though, find the narrator lacking in color and emotional depth.
Regarding the work itself: If could only have read one book in my life, it would be Herodotus' ethnography and history of the Scythians. They blow my mind. I wish I were Scythian...
If a narrator narrated with a little more "umph"/"chutzvah"/"spirit", I would easily give it 5 stars.
The narrarator is very good. The musical interludes are quite a nice touch as well. However, the translation itself seems somewhat cumbersome in many places.
Overall: Very good
