This book takes you by the hand and teaches you everything you need to know if you were to time-travel to medieval England, hence the title. Sometimes I almost felt the narrator walking by my side along the road, pointing at various places, people or events, stopping from time to time to explain some concept of medieval life that my 21st century brain might have trouble to comprehend.
Also, Mortimer succeeds in going into detail while keeping the listener entertained and attentive.
Finally, the narrator's voice is warm and clear, which is a big plus for me as English isn't my primary language.
A great read. I recommend this book to anyone who wonders what life would be if we were born in those times instead of our own.
