If you need to forget about your world, and jump into another for a while then these books provide that escape. Good 'ripping yarn'

Getting VERY unbelievable now.

There whole series is good and worth listening too, but how much bad luck can any group have, but still manage to get out of the impossible situation ? It's getting to the point if there is going to be a happy ending the circumstances to how it all comes together for this to happen is going to ridiculously unbelievable.

Usual Terry Pratchett brilliance

Another wonderfully quirky yarn. A story with wonderful characters and plots. Terry Pratchett sadly missed.

Ripping yarn that makes you live in the times instead of reading a dry text book on this era. The war of the roses sound like a fantasy novel. All that was needed was a few wizards and a couple dragons

Good story, but absolutely terrible narration

Great escapist story. As usual Cornwell weaves an excellent yarn out of his excellent knowledge of history. It's a shame the narration was absolutely awful.

Not sure about Stephen Briggs, but then we were all spoilt by Nigel Planer brilliant narration on Terry's earlier works

What made the experience of listening to Enemy of God the most enjoyable?

The best how it could of been Arthur story I have read. Cornwell knows his history, and really makes the post British Roman dark age world come alive.

What did you like best about this story?

All of it. just a really good yarn

What does Jonathan Keeble bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

I would say that Tim Pigott-Smith is better narrator on the abridged version, but Keeble does a good job.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

A real page turner. If you want to escape from your own world for a few hours then listen to these stories

Any additional comments?

Obviously not a factual story of a post Roman world of Britain, but gives you an insight into what problems a post Roman British leader would of faced in the 5th century
