    Story
    (80)

    From humble beginnings and a narrow escape from death in childhood, William Marshall steadily rises through the ranks to become tutor in arms to the son of King Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine. Based on fact, this is the story of William Marshal, the greatest knight of the Middle Ages.

    A User says: "Could have been Greater."
    "a touch too.romantic"
    Overall

    I found this tale and the Knight far too perfect to be even vaguely realistic. If pure romantic dream is your want though don't be put off by me.

  • Fall of Giants: The Century Trilogy, Book 1

    Story
    (4708)

    Ken Follett's World Without End was a global phenomenon, a work of grand historical sweep beloved by millions of readers and acclaimed by critics. Fall of Giants is his magnificent new historical epic. The first novel in The Century Trilogy, it follows the fates of five interrelated families - American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh - as they move through the world-shaking dramas of the First World War, the Russian Revolution, and the struggle for women's suffrage.

    Keith says: "Ken Follett and John Lee / Audible's Dream Team"

    Story

    Perhaps it is only me, but reviews make me nervous. It isn't only that we are all individuals, it's that we have literary moods. Mine run from historical fiction through history on to brain candy horror. If I read a book I'm not in the mood to listen to I always hate it, until I turn back to it in the right mood, then I love it. So if your mood is for a long, well researched, rendition of how green was my valley, you'll love this. Add warm fire, and a comfy chair for added bliss.

    Story
    (115)

    Dr. Hector Carpentier leads a very quiet life, until he meets legendary police officer Vidocq, who has used his mastery of disguise and surveillance and his extensive knowledge of the Parisian underworld to capture some of the most notorious and elusive criminals.

    Booksmith says: "Truly Engaging and Clever"
    "pure pleasure"
    Overall

    Every word is pure pleasure and Vance is simply sublime. If mystery and history are your thing this story will stay with you and be there to listen to over and over again whenever you need the company of an old friend.
