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.
