    "Noman Knight in Search of Irish Family Connection"
    Any additional comments?

    Ingram of the Irish is set in 12th Century Ireland at a time when Ireland still had Kings and the Normans invaded frequently. Although it is fiction, it reads like a true historical account of what happened between two warring Irish kings for control over the land and its people.

    The story centers on Ingram who as an orphan baby is left at the doorstep of a noble across the Irish sea. He is cared for and raised as a squire and once he is an adult, he quickly proves himself a valuable knight and warrior. However, he longs for word of his origins and wonders who his parents are. The 13-plus hours of audio is his journey to discover from where he came.

    Chris Macdonnell did a great job narrating. He had differing voices for characters young and old, as well as male and female. He also expressed feelings and urgency when appropriate.

    If I have one complaint with the audio book it is how long it is. There is much back and forth with Ingram's feelings and his trials and tribulations with the two Irish kings. I just think the story would have been more effective and more enthralling with a few hours shaved off as my interest started to wane at the 10-hour mark. I received a free copy of this audio in exchange for an unbiased review.

    "Great narration ... story drags at times"
    Any additional comments?

    Ingram of the Irish is a story of an abandoned baby who grows up to be an English knight. At 26 years of age, an Irish monk comes to the castle to tell Ingram that he is of Irish decent. Ingram then goes to Ireland to find his family.

    The story is good bones to it but I felt that is was way longer than it needed to be.

    I loved Mr. Macdonnell's narration. I will listen to another of his books. He has great sense of character and knows how to express the emotions needed without being over dramatic.

    A thought provoking book. Drama and lessons to be learned through out the book. I like this kind of story and the narrator did a great job.
