    In this audiobook, John Pruskin takes us from the fall of the Roman Empire to the cusp of the Italian Renaissance. You have a ringside seat as the remnants of the Roman Empire emerge from the tangled chaos of the barbarian conquests.

    Story

    I've listened to most of the books Audible has to offer covering the Middle Ages. This particular book is unique. It is structured into almost 400 segments that resemble grandiose captions rather than chapters. Each chapter is preceded by a sound effect that would be more comfortable in a Dr Who episode, circa 1974. The author and narrator speaks in a rigid and clipped fashion. He has a penchant for strange and unique pronunciations of certain words that I would describe as bizarre. His description of certain figures stands in direct opposition to commonly held opinion without any substantiation.

    The net result is best described as uncomfortable.
