    "The story continues."

    A consistent continuation of the story. Great detail and excellent characterization. A fitting second volume.

    Story
    "Did the janitor pinch-hit for a no-show narrator?"

    Where did they get this narrator? He could not have been more ill-suited for the role. Voicing a Roman emperor, even one who was an awkward, half-crippled misfit, calls for a modicum of gravitas. This narrator sounds like some guy named Bill from Cleveland or Indianapolis.
    I listened to the audiobook of "I, Claudius" and loved the story and the narrator, so I was looking forward to "Claudius the God." Foolishly, I assumed that the narrator of the latter, if not the same person, would be of similar quality, so I didn't listen to the audio sample before purchasing the audiobook. Learn from my mistake.

    "Very strong presentation"

    I had to work a bit to get into this one but I don't know much about Roman history. This was a great intro. Runger did a stand up job, very solid. On to the sequel.

    Story
    "OMG is this story slow!"
    What disappointed you about Claudius the God?

    this story was incredibly slow. After 4 hours, i said


    What could Robert Graves have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    shorten it by 8-10 hours


    Would you be willing to try another one of Nelson Runger’s performances?

    yes


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disappointment that I wasted my monthly credit on this snoozer


    Any additional comments?

    I will never buy another book from this author. the stories are too long and tedious. only buy this if you can't sleep and need 'white noise' as background
