Among the best of the middle of the pack.
I have listened to 2 of his other books and thought all were well done.
He does a wonderful job staying consistent with his voices.
I didn't. I was disappointed with the disjointed nature of the book. That is certainly the author's fault. It was entertaining and informative, but annoyingly disjointed.
Peter the Great is a good starting point for delving into the history of Tsarist Russia under the Romanov Dynasty.
I enjoyed the the accounts of his trips to the West. How the monarch of a perceived barbarian and backwards land is received in the enlightened cities of Europe.
I felt he did an exceptional job particularly with the Russian names. My only complaint is his speech seemed a little mumbled at times. Hence my 4 star rating. If 5 is perfect this is slightly under.
There are parts of the book that are certainly funny.
