    Story
    (20)

    The Crusaders, led by Richard I of England, are encamped in the Holy Land, and torn by the dissensions and jealousies of the leaders, including, besides Coeur de Lion himself, Philip of France, the duke of Austria, the Marquis of Montferrat, and the Grand Master of the Templars. The army's impotence is accentuated by the illness of Richard.

    Benedict says: "Pretty good"
    "A wonderful tale, delightfully told"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Talisman the most enjoyable?

    The twists and turns of the plot and the delightful 19th century prose. It is a rare joy to go back to such a well constructed classic.


    What other book might you compare The Talisman to and why?

    It certainly holds it's own, and then some, amongst the rest of the Waverly Novels (Rob Roy, Ivanhoe, et al).


    What does Robert Whitfield bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The reading is clear and flawlessly handles the rich language of the book, making the listening a real pleasure.
