Some 250 years after its first publication, Gibbon's Decline and Fall is still regarded as one of the greatest histories in Western literature. He reports on more than 1,000 years of an empire which extended from the most northern and western parts of Europe to deep into Asia and Africa and covers not only events but also the cultural and religious developments that effected change during that time.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This is an amazing book and feat of scholarship. We tried as a family the audio vox version and David Timson is just so much better at bringing it to life
