"Paxson's bright fusion of fact and myth is a fine tribute to Bradley and the real-world triumphs and tragedy of Boudica." (Publishers Weekly)
I have loved all the Avalon books before this one, and this time it was not the story that killed me. Honestly the problem with this book? The reader.
I have never stopped an audiobook right in the middle before now. This woman's voice is painful. She makes this painful monotone almost screechy sound when she is doign a character singing or chant. Her male voices made me want to drive a cheese grater into my ears to get it out.
Read the book by all means, but don't waste your ears on this one.
Good story line, I love the historical references. The story almost moves to fast, skipping two or three years at a time. This might be partly the reader as she never pauses to segment a difference in time, but it does get a little confusing at times.
I really looked forward to listening to this book, but after 3 long boring hours, I had to stop and delete. My mind wandered as it went on and on. And the narrator's voice was really irritating to me. Sorry I wasted a credit.
The book is incredible and well written.
No she is by far the worst narrator I have ever listened to.
Horrible narrator Amazing book
I very much enjoyed the story. It has made me want to research the actual historical figure of Boudica. I found the narrator's voice to be a bit grating at times although the performance was good.
