    Against a teeming canvas of Borgia politics, Niccolò Machiavelli and Leonardo da Vinci come together to unmask an enigmatic serial killer, as we learn the secret history behind one of the most controversial works in the western canon, The Prince. Traveling across an Italy torn apart by war, they will enter a labyrinth of ancient superstition and erotic obsession to discover at its center a new face of evil - and a truth that will shake the foundations of western civilization.

    Molly Gordon says: "Female narrator is impossible to listen to."
    "So Much Work"

    What did you like best about The Malice of Fortune? What did you like least?

    The story is so good, but Carlotta Montanari's reading was very challenging for me to follow, and so not very engaging.

    I love the idea of having the story read with an Italian accent, but often, an unusually accented syllable or strange vowels means that I have to try to figure out what she said, and lose the thread of what she is saying.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    It was someone difficult to follow the plot since the narrator's accent was so thick. I would rather not work so hard to understand the story.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of the narrators?

    The male voices worked really well. I wished the female narrator was a native English speaker, or had a softer accent. I usually follow foreign accents easily, but this one was a lot of work.
