It was painful getting to know the authors style, and i have to tell you I nearly turned it off in the first 5 chapters. The use of the three word sentences is annoying at first, but once I got into it, I could not turn it off. Really makes me look at historical events with a much more critical eye now.
This was my first audible purchase, and the best thing i could have done! The writing was mesmerizing, the reading of it was top notch, and led to several hours of sitting in my car finding out how the chapter ended well after I had gotten to where I was going! I am not the biggest Steven King fan, but that guy does know how to tell a story! Invest in all of the Dark Tower books, Right Now!
I think I would have enjoed this if I hadnt read the DaVinci book first. I can see how the author says it was copied, they are remarkably similar. However, I liked this hero better, and I liked the writing style more.
I was so turned off by the self-absorbed nature of these characters, I really did not care how it turned out. The reading style was ok, but the brogue for the man from America was cute at first, but then got annoying. Save your money.
