Really interesting lectures. A bit American orientated towards the end but still relevant. Good lecture style, made them very accessible. Well worth listening too. Changed my eating habits!

If you could sum up The Story of Medieval England: From King Arthur to the Tudor Conquest in three words, what would they be?

Good if you don't already know much of the main events in the timeline for this period. Otherwise no details really that added to the main events. Still worth a listen and the Professor is good at delivery and clear with events.

Not as good as the Outlander novels

Would you listen to A Leaf on the Wind of All Hallows again? Why?

Yes, because it is part of the Outlander Saga

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I am a devotee of Diana Gabaldon but was disappointed in this novelette. Jerry didn't do much when he went through the stones except wander about a bit. You never really got hold of a decent threadline either in the past or the present.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Possibly

If you could sum up A History of England from the Tudors to the Stuarts in three words, what would they be?

Informative, interesting, different angle.

What was one of the most memorable moments of A History of England from the Tudors to the Stuarts?

The Great Chain of Being and how it changed through the history of the Tudors and the Stuarts

What does Professor Robert Bucholz bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Lively lecture style, doesn't drone, well researched, well presented.
My only reason for not giving full stars is because of his overuse of "by the way..." which does get a bit repetitive but not enough to take away from these lectures being really good.

Love the story but wish it had been read by somebody else, he really doesn't put any expression into his delivery.
