"I don't need this kind of competition." (Bernard Cornwell)
Yes, Stephen Pacey is one of the best narrators out there, this was my 1st Simon Scarrow novel so I would give him another chance
Is that it? At only four hours long it felt way to short and at times felt like a book for young adults.
Yes and as always his performance is excellent even if some of the characters in ancient rome have so very british accents.
Give it a go, but bear in mind it fells like a short story rather than a full blown book. I'm aware there are others in this series and maybe if I tried two together it may be a different opinion afterwards
"Can't recommend "
My least favorite of the series so far. Can't recommend this version. Perhaps the unabridged version is better. This one felt forced.
