Very long and detailed, but well narrated. You do have to focus and pay attention, otherwise you'll lose track. Only issue is he tends to skip around a bit, so sometimes it's difficult to tell which emperor or time period he is talking about. Excellent thesis on early Christianity.
Other reviewers have commented negatively on Patrick Freeman's narration. I agree that it is difficult to listen to, so I speeded up the playback to 1.5X and everything was fine. Also, one other point. The second book leaves the plot just hanging. We don't know how humanity is ultimately saved. I guess the intent is to leave room for lots of follow-on books, but I thought it was just too open ended. If I had known that, I wouldn't have bothered with this series.
The content is several years old, so you should treat it more as a history than current thought.
Written and read like a high school journalism student. Selective use of data to back scenarios. Leaves out details that would contradict. It's already 2012 and a lot of the predictions made haven't happened.
the narration is annoying both in tone and attempt to duplicate L'Enfant's French accent. And the author's observations are plebeian.
Need to already know Vietnamese for this to help
