"Brilliantly imagined and addictive....Iggulden weaves a spellbinding story of an exotic and 'unforgiving land' and the enigmatic young man - charismatic, a brilliant tactician and capable 'of utter ruthlessness' - who sets out to tame it. This is historical fiction of the first order." (Publishers Weekly)
Amazing story! Started off a tad slow for me but I loved it. Love learning about all these imp persons in history!
Told beautifully with gripping detail of the everyday and everyman's point of view in this historical period. Conn Iggulden is a master of the historical novel.
Physician. Likes complicated English and intricate plots
Racy and involving. Enjoyable. Some factual discrepancies. Some intentional whitewashing of the characters? Looking forward to the next book. Thx
Yes, because the book was so well written and the story of the birth, childhood, and maturation of Genghis is phenomenal.
Love reading tech & business especially when it comes in a single book.
This book does an exceptional job at weaving the facts of Genghis Khan with a gripping detailed story.
The forging of Temüjin's character and strength through numerous misfortunes.
No I haven't
Yes, but it is too long. I stayed up very late into the night listening.
Is a nice exciting story, if you like epic fantasy is a great book, I was looking for something more hystorical
I was looking for something more accurate, Genghis was famous for his ruthlesness and the hordes are known for its savagery but in the book they act like medieval knights with strange love ideals and European standards
The narrator is great as per Audible standards, great characterization, awesome ambiance
Probably, it can make a great fantasy storyline, but I'm getting out here
Putting Genghis name in the title is what made me buy it, but this most definitely is not an accurate portrayal.
Can't do it in three words, but will say this novel is a great listen, harsh at times, yet with so much hope and grace in the most primitive times. When the family is turned out, and the treachery goes on, you can 't just stop and go to something else!
Clan Of The Cave Bear. Both are novels, yet show wonderful research and work to bring the listener to another time, another place. Both ring true as you listen- hard, yet honest.
Very smooth reading/narration, good voices for all the characters.
Well, other than the title character, it's hard to choose which one- maybe the mother- straight forward acceptance of the hardships and living on the edge, yet strong.
I wasn't too sure about this book, but I'll listen to it again. Very good listen, well worth the credit and time.
