I will probably have to listen to this book again before I can give are better review.
Discovered audio books as a way to pass the time at work and now I'm hooked.
Yes, it does a great job of tying facts into a historical fiction.
Yes, I think they would enjoy some of the parodies to real history.
The different personalities.
No, I don't think anyone would want to make this into a movie.
I read this series some years ago and loved it. The story is well told in this audio book and I
am enjoying listening to it over and over again.
this is a weird one and not well written. the plot is too far fetched. the manor of speech of the characters is unsettling to the mood of the story. hard to recommend this one.
