  • The Borgias: The Hidden History

    • By G. J. Meyer
    • Narrated By Enn Reitel

    Story
    (81)

    The startling truth behind one of the most notorious dynasties in history is revealed in a remarkable new account by the acclaimed author of The Tudors and A World Undone. Sweeping aside the gossip, slander, and distortion that have shrouded the Borgias for centuries, G. J. Meyer offers an unprecedented portrait of the infamous Renaissance family and their storied milieu.

    Cinders says: "Marvelous !"
    "One point of view, slow moving"

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It was worth listening to for the historical information. But the way it was put across was slow. I could tell that the author wrote the book in order to oppose prevailing opinions on the depravity of the Borgias. In fact the author pretty much admits this in his introduction. The entire book is written to support the author's claims but does not do any justice to why so many scholars believe otherwise.


    Would you recommend The Borgias to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would not recommend this book. My friends would be bored.


    What aspect of Enn Reitel’s performance would you have changed?

    The narrator could have used a little more emotion in his performance. He read well but the content was so dry, it would have benefitted from a little more excitement from the narrator.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would definitely recommend the book to a friend. It was interesting and kept my attention.


    Have you listened to any of Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to many of these narrators' other performances. They always do very well.


    Any additional comments?

    I have either read or listened to maybe all of David Baldacci's books. I love them. This one was good, not his best, but good.
