I might buy another book read by Robert Whitfield, but probably not any more Sir Walter Scott books. The story was drawn out, plodding, and though the overall plot was good, too many words. Scott is a good writer as far as the use of the language, but he is not concise.
I tried two, don't think I will try another. I had heard he was a good classic writer but a bit to slow and verbose for me.
Robert Whitfield was a good reader, not painful to listen to, I would like to hear him read a different author and see the difference.
Yes. The main actors Viggo Mortensen should be the main character.
The character development, writing, and epic scope is amazing.
The Count of Monte Christo. You see him slowly change into someone else completely. He is almost a god, possessing power, nearly infinite resources, knowledge, etc.
His slow calculated vengeance on his enemies, where he puts them in the position to destroy themselves, was brilliant.
It made me think.
