rich, and beautifully told
Where does Fatal Discord rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Right up there.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Luther. Massing does a wonderful job humanizing him, will all his (deep) flaws.
Any additional comments?
The juxtaposition of Luther and Erasmus is extremely effective in highlighting the importance of each.
