Really... a total waste of time. I listened to the end hoping for something interesting to happen, what a let down. Boring story, a self entitlement trip

Unfortunate narration

This book could be very enjoyable and interesting. Unfortunately it is ruined by the narrator and his histrionics. It should not be a performance but a reading of a book, does he really read like that the printed books? Appalling. Could not endure it longer than an hour. Pity

Only Edwuina

Almost finished listening to it. It is not, in my opinion, the Mountbattens but just Edwuina. Thoroughly selfish and spoiled person regardless of her work during the war and in India.

I ALSO WISH I HAD BEEN TAUGHT MORE AT SCHOOL...

Where does The Silk Roads rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

So far if pretty high up. Engrossing, enlightining, informative and written with love

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Silk Roads?

Iran and its petrol and the greed of the West for it, not caring at all for the owners : the iranians.

Which character – as performed by Laurence Kennedy – was your favourite?

I understood him as a narrator, not a performer

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

difficult, too long

Any additional comments?

get it, listen to it, enjoy it, learn

It is a wonderful book, written with love

Would you consider the audio edition of Spain to be better than the print version?

I don't know since I've only listened to it

What was one of the most memorable moments of Spain?

So much but specially all related to Cervantes and his work, the writer's passion for El Quijote shines through

What about Jeremy Clyde’s performance did you like?

Everything

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

Yes

Any additional comments?

I think Juliet's comment about the narrator are not fair. So what if some words are mispronounced? If it doesn't worry me who happen to be Spanish it should not be of too much concern for others. What counts is the feeling he puts and how very entertaining he makes listening to it.

What made the experience of listening to Homer Box Set: Iliad & Odyssey the most enjoyable?

both books have been on my "to do" list for years but for some reason I thought of reading them a bit of a daunting task. What a pleasure to listen to them, so beautifully read or should I say acted? so many names, gods, mortals.. I found it confusing at the beginning, who is who? who is doing what to whom? and it really doesn't matter, just listen and enjoy every minute.

What did you like best about this story?

everything

Have you listened to any of Anthony Heald’s other performances? How does this one compare?

no, but I thought he was fantastic

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

let yourself be carried away ....

Any additional comments?

forgive my possible mistakes, english is not my mother tongue.
