The narrator did an ok job with women's voices, but when it came to men's voices she sounded drunk, drugged, or constipated.
Alison Weir is great at non-fiction and should really stick to that genre.
The book skipped from one part of the world to another, one war and leader to another, quickly and without any kind of lead-in. The facts were interesting, but it skipped around a bit too much for me. I did learn some things though.
I probably will eventually.
The surprise ending.
The British accent, although sometimes her Australian accent sneaks through.
Yes. I would listen again because there was way too much information to absorb in one hearing. Lisette Lecat did an excellent job as narrator and brought the book to life.
The factual history.
Alison Weir is really good at the detective work needed for this kind of book. She gives you detailed facts and then draws conclusions to come up with her take on history's mysteries. I learn a lot from her books.
Slightly far fetched
Yes. I'm reading the series.
Her excellent skill at making each character sound different.
No. Much too long.
This whole Outlander series if far fetched, but some of the story lines in this particular book seem more so than in the previous books. However, it's still a good read and I'll continue with the next book when I'm finished with this one.
