I could never, never have immagined that a history of the Middle Ages could have given me such a pleasure in listening to(and in fact I even bought a paper copy of the book). The idea of mixing the history of the 14th century with the life of the main character of the story (Enguerrand VII, Sire de Coucy) is simply brilliant and developed with masterful ability by the author. The narration develops so incredibly, that from time to time you have to remind yourself that this is real, documented history, and not a piece of fiction.
Your whole perspective of the history of Europe (and also of several aspects of our modern society) will change completely after reading this book.
