After witnessing his father's crucifixion by Roman soldiers, Daniel bar Jamin is fired by a single passion: to avenge his father's death by driving the Roman legions from the land of Israel. Consumed by hatred, Daniel leads a dangerous life living with an outlaw band in the hills outside his village, spying and plotting, impatiently waiting to take revenge. Winner of the 1962 Newbery Medal, The Bronze Bow is the story of a boy's tormented journey.

What would have made The Bronze Bow better?

The narration was terrible.

Would you be willing to try another book from Elizabeth George Speare? Why or why not?

Not read by this person.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Mary Woods?

Jim Carter (head butler on Downton Abbey) because he should narrate every book.

Any additional comments?

Don't waste your money on this audio book. Just make time to read it yourself.
