This book gave a great glance at the 13th century. It is a long book that moves rapidly between settings with lots of action. Not a slow moment in the book. It was interesting how L'Amour revealed the terminology that began then, the medical practices of the time, and what many progressive thinkers of the time had discovered
Occasionally too low. An absolute perfect choice of narrator for such a great book. The problem is that many of us listen to books while traveling in a car. At times for the drama of the moment the narrator speaks in a whisper. No way can we pick up what he says and it is usually at a crucial time of the book. Other very good narrators have this flaw. If you are listening in your library or bedroom at home it is great but on the road it is too much work on our part to hear. Just say the words so that we can hear them. Except for this one flaw, I would have given the performance a 5.
The book moves rapidly between settings and you must focus on the names of the characters and where they belong in the story. My wife and I read this and listened to it together on a long trip. Except for the narrator whispering at times it was a wonderful experience.
