    Story
    (207)

    Although born to rule, Aidan lives as a scribe in a remote Irish monastery on the far, wild edge of Christendom. Secure in work, contemplation, and dreams of the wider world, a miracle bursts into Aidan's quiet life. He is chosen to accompany a small band of monks on a quest to the fabled city of Byzantium, where they are to present the beautiful and costly hand-illuminated Book of Kells to the emperor of all Christendom.

    "BETTER READ THAN LISTENED TOO!!!!!"
    Overall

    Excellent story ruined by gut wrenching, monotone narration. I got used to it about 2/3 of the way through but could not help but think the book would have been much better had i read it rather than listen to it. Great story. Horrible narration.

    Jussi Adler-Olsen is Denmark's premier crime writer. His books routinely top the bestseller lists in northern Europe, and he's won just about every Nordic crime-writing award, including the prestigious Glass Key Award-also won by Henning Mankell, Stieg Larsson, and Jo Nesbo. Now, Dutton is thrilled to introduce him to America.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I love this author and all his stories are fabulous, edge of your seat listening. However, the narrator of this particular story is HIDEOUS. I was so irritated and distracted by his accent and how contrived and forced and stupid he made all the characters sound. This one is better read than listened to!
