Some books you just don't want to end. Neil Gaiman is a master story teller.

Loved it.

A riveting history excellently read by Gordon Griffin. Both author an narrator really bring the story to life. I absolutely loved it.

Good story masterfully narrated by Mr Bray.

Highly recommended as a bit of mental chewing gum. If you liked RC Bray's narrative on other series or books you'll love this.

Good story. Amusing pronunciation.<br />

They should really make sure that the narrator knows the correct way to pronounce the British place names etc. At least make the effort.

Amazing true story.

Absolutely loved it from beginning to end. An enthralling tale that will delight anyone with an interest in the Cold War or spy stories.

An excellent book, I just wish there was more. Should be put on the national curriculum.

Self absorbed and at times irritating

Full respect to Mr Middleton but you wouldn't want to go for a pint with him.

Very Entertaining.

I absolutely loved this book from start to finish. Stephen Fry delivers a masterful narration of stories which everyone should know and love. So much wisdom that is as relevant now as it was then.

These were some of the first books I read as a boy and David Gemmell has long been one of my favourite authors. I'm so glad that they have finally appeared on Audible and look forward to listening to the entire series. Legend is an awesome book full of heroic fantasy and daring do and Sean Barrett is the perfect narrator for the stories.

Narration was a real problem with this one.

Promising story but struggled with the narration. Unless your name is Jonathon Keeble and you've written a book, stop being a cheapskate and hire a professional next time.
