Absolutely amazing book. John Lee brought the characters to life and made this audio version even better than the book I read so many years ago. Every bit as good as The Pillars Of The Earth and World Without End. I'm hooked on John Lee.
Cornwell does it again. The Saxon Stories are a great addition to his long list of masterpieces. As usual, he pulls no punches. This is gritty, bloody reality in 9th century England. You will not be disappointed.
The only redeeming quality in this overblown meandering mess is narrator Scott Brick. Unlike the book, I'm going to get to the point.
Don't waste your time on this. In the end, you will have gained nothing and feel ripped off. Mainly because, after hours and hours of unrealistic nothingness, this garbage had no real finale. The book that would never end, didn't!
Yawn. 1 star is generous.
