Read this, not the David Ian Davies

I can't compare this to other readings, but this is far preferable to the David Ian Davies. While a distinctly British reading, Davies' Irish and Scottish brogues are so authentic as to render his reading of the story unintelligible.

Outstanding

It's abruptly poignant as Dan the narcissist becomes Dan the king when he's been strppied of his position but comes into his nobility.

One mistake can brind down the whole structure

The story follows two crooks from England, as far as I remember, who travel to Middle East and become kings; and by disregarding the previous beliefs they had loose it all.

Good classic listen.

Reading quite good. Don't expect it to be like the movie. They're each good in their own rites.

Ugh...

Ok, I know this was a cheap buy, buy why, WHY, do we have British stories being narrated with American accents? I find this really hard to listen to. It just feels like it's all over the place. I'd never expect to hear a Stephen King or a Jim Butcher book narrated in a British accent... What a waste... I think I'll just give it back!

Fantastic.

Brilliantly written and brilliantly read. The incredible story of two con men who attempt to swindle the tribes of the Middle East. Highly recommended.
