Publisher's Summary

With the death of Edward the Confessor, the crown of England is hanging in the balance. And in the north Harald Hardrada, the Norwegian Viking leader, is determined to take his chance of capturing the country.

But newly-crowned King Harold Godwinson will not let that happen without a fight. Charismatic and the leader of a mighty army, he is determined to make Hadrada the last Viking in England. And so the bloodiest battle yet fought on English soil is about to begin. At stake is sovereignty, freedom, and honour.

    Story
    "A really disappointing purchase"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A better story narrated by someone who had even the smallest shred of talent. It was like listening to an episode of Eastenders set in the 11th century, ghost written by Mike Tyson and narrated by someone on day release from the voice-over dustbin of a second rate Hentai Studio. Utter drivvel. If you have even the slightest interest in historical fact, or even hunger for a whiff of realism, this book will make you spew.


    What will your next listen be?

    Something to do with accountancy...like a literary glass of water to wash away the taste of a really unpleasant wine at a charity tasting. This book was the equivalent of a £4.00 bottle of sauternes. sickly rubbish that is likely to put you off pudding wine for ever.


    Who might you have cast as narrator instead of David Thorpe?

    A polar bear or any of the penguins at London zoo would have worked better


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Nope. Actually, scratch that, yes - the fact that I can erase it from my Ipod is a major bonus and something to give thanks for. The cover was the best bit.


    Any additional comments?

    I suppose this makes my enjoyment of other books even greater - not much could be worse. I gave up in the 5th chapter and re-played Panzer Commander and found it to be a fabulous antidote to The Last Viking.

    Historical Adventure Legends

    King Harlod he was the brains who had to make all the tough calls


    What about David Thorpe’s performance did you like?

    Mr Thorpe's performance was on the mark and his characters were a pro's work of art


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I liked this style of book had a full range of emotions I did both


    Any additional comments?

    "Boring and poorly done."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    No one I can think of.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Berwick Coates again?

    Based on this book, probably not.


    What didn’t you like about David Thorpe’s performance?

    The voices he attempts. It's like listening to your drunk college roommate doing a Monty Python bit.
