(P)2002 Blackstone Audiobooks
This was a very good book to listen to - I did not want to turn it off!!! The Adventure with the history made it all the more interesting - although I did need to find a map of Venice to help me picture the different locations.
This historical fiction is captivating and the narration is extremely well done. The narrator successfully gives each character of the story (of which there are many both male and female) a distinct, recognizable, and nuanced voice. The history of Venice at the end of the 14th century comes to life herein.

I have read 4 Henty books myself and wanted an Audible book to listen to while running. I enjoyed this story a lot. It is not as gripping as "The Carthagian," but it is well told and the story trips a long at a pace that makes listening enjoyable and easy to follow. The geography is pretty simple, the characters are vivid and have easy to remember names. The narrator never gets in the way, but puts forth the story. An invisible reader is what you want when you listen to a book. You'll enjoy it if you like G. A. Henty, "The boys historian!"
yes well I must start out by saying there isn't a g a henty book I have not enjoyed I grew up reading them and as classic as always GA henty rights most modest views of a young gentleman becoming a great leader very rewarding
Torah-following family man, Multi-disciplined engineer, self-styled philologist and harsh critic of humanist Progressive religion.
Another all-around great romp by Henty! Thank you, Mr. Cosham, for an un-prepossessing yet most capable read!
This reading is amazing! I have listened for 3 hrs! Can't turn it off! Must get! Ralph Cosham fails at female voices but is great with the male voices. I suggest this to teenagers.
classic GA Henty. good story. action, adventure, romance.
reader does a fine job. Does not seem to give very different for various characters. great job
I had to read this for high school literature this year, I usually despise battle strategies and the like, but it had hints of romance, suspense and excitement. The main character was remarkably built and very admirable!!!
