Mysterium I: Rome
- By: Mitchel Fidel
- Narrated by: Phillip J Mather
- Length: 5 hrs and 6 mins
Jesus of Nazareth has been dead for some 65 years. The eyewitnesses to this extraordinary life have died, often as martyrs, and only a scattered handful remain. Might anyone have resolved to interview those last few before it was too late, it being a matter of mind-boggling importance? What if someone had? Mysterium I: Rome presents the story of a young Roman scholar who determines to do precisely that.

I really tried. The recording is terrible and the narrator is impossible to understand. Sounds like a basso profundo Demosthenes with his mouth crammed full of pebbles. When he tries to change voices between characters, the narration becomes even more unintelligible. Please EQ this recording and get a different narrator.

Sorry, but ZZZZZZZZZZZZZ...
What would have made Iron and Rust (Throne of the Caesars, Book 1) better?
There are some interesting parts, but more often than not the narrative drags. Not consistently entertaining; often slips into tedium and the mundane. Too many names to remember; too many unrelated scenes, to the point that one stops paying attention.
Has Iron and Rust (Throne of the Caesars, Book 1) put you off other books in this genre?
No. Just this series.
What three words best describe Colin Mace’s performance?
Loud, then whispers.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Any additional comments?
Unusual Anglization of some Latin pronunciations. You don't hear, for example, RO-man-EYE-tus rather than Ro-MAN-ee-TAS every day. Causes a few double takes.The volume of the audio is uneven. One finds oneself reaching for the volume control because one moment it will be loud and the next it will fade to a whisper.
