I really enjoy the Modern Scholar series, and Dr Shutt's lectures (this and other topics) are educational and liberally sprinkled with wit. Dante's Divine Comedy comes to life as Shutt reaches into the minds of Dante and his contemporaries, tells us the story and some of what was going on at the time. Very enjoyable.
I would definitely recommend this audiobook and the series
Steve Berry can take a premise that seems preposterous and make it sound very believable. He turns it into a good story with supporting characters that are fully developed. I really like the fact that when the story is finished, Berry reviews the story and tells what is factual and what is made up.
I've listened to most of Steve Berry's books and those have all been read by Brick. He can do 'smartass' really well, but is also serious when the storyline calls for that.
I can't think of a better name
Towards the top.
Jane Whitefield is an excellent character. She uses her wits and her skills very naturally.
I like how she remembers her heritage after the case is over.
I had already read this book, so I knew the story. I'm glad that there are more to come.
An enjoyable story.
I typically don't read a title if I'm going to listen to it. The reader, Scott Brick, is excellent.
I'd really hate to give anything away! The whole premise of the story is very plausible.
Brick is a good reader for Cotton Malone, he does Malone's sarcasm very well
I really like the author's notes at the end which tell what parts of the book are accurate to history and what was made up. It really adds to the historical aspect.
