The lecturer was VERY knowledgeable. But so much so that he went all over the map, time-wise, and assumed a lot of previous knowledge. I found myself often confused. "Wait, WHEN is this?" At first, I thought it was me. I thought I had too little knowledge of the classics. But I sallied forth, and finally, just over halfway through, got discouraged enough to abandon it, entirely. Frankly, I just got bored.
I hesitated to write a negative review, because I always assume that the problem is me. BUT... I recently took up TWO other Great Courses, one in history and one in science, and I love them both. So, in this case, sadly, I must blame the lecturer.
Absolutely. I consider this negative review to be an anomaly. I have been very satisfied with The Great Courses from Audible, and the ones previously purchased from the Great Courses catalog.
No. Not really.
