The Wallace: Scotland's Greatest Hero | [Nigel Tranter]

The Wallace: Scotland's Greatest Hero

William Wallace is accepted as an even greater hero than King Robert the Bruce; he is Scotland's most honoured son, a patriot unrivalled. Bruce fought for a throne; Wallace fought for the nation's freedom with nothing wanted for himself. Terribly, Wallace paid the price, as this story relates.

    75 yr old MWF. I like historical novels with more history than story. Audiobooks shouldn't have too many characters.

    "The Wallace"

    Nothing but battle descriptions. I'm sorry I bought it. I wish audible had a way to return books that don't turn out to be sufficiently captivating to hold ones' interest.

    "The Wallace: Scotland's Greatest Hero"

    The Wallace: Scotland's Greatest Hero by Nigel Tranter is very finest story. This is a story based on the life of William Wallace the hero of Scotland. This is finest story of Scotland's most honored son, a patriot unrivaled. At the end of the 13th century Scotland was suffering under the tyranny of the English and Edward Plantagenet. The eponymous hero swears to rid his land of their cruelty and to restore Robert the Bruce to the throne. Nigel Tranter has written many historical novels, mostly set in Scotland. It is a good read and even better if you happen to be Scottish. The tutored and encouraged by the heroic William Wallace, he determined to continue the fight for an independent Scotland, sustained by a passionate love for his land. This two-hour and fifty four minutes abridged audio version of also includes author commentary and an original narrated by Michael Elder. It creates imagination about the story through his bold voice that explains, capturing the essence of a story told by a writer who remains tender to the tragedy it contains. The 'William Wallace' this is outstanding story of hero of Scottish Independence.

    "Bloody embarrassing dirge"

    DO NOT BUY THIS AUDIOBOOK! There is a real lack of Scots history available in audiobook format but please do not waste a penny of your money on this 'braveheart' sentimental, nationalist crap.
    Just for clarification I am Scottish and proud to be so but I am embarrassed by this book!
