I think it was very very short.

Too short for my liking and a waste of a credit, I wish it had more facts in it.

Overall bad value and disappointing content.

Firstly, this is a very expensive audio book considering it is only 1hr in length.
In their quest to make it very silly and cram the programme full of silly voices and cheesy jokes, they totally forgot to tell a story. There was no structure to the narrative and my 9 year old, who normally loves silly voices and silly jokes found it really hard to follow and understand the facts that were being presented.
I felt a lot of time was wasted on sections that really didn't work - like the sacred chicken section voiced by the chickens themselves. I had to stop the audio and explain what that was all about to my son who just couldn't make any sense of what he was hearing except for chickens talking in a silly Chicken voice.
I think it was a case of trying to hard to fit to the "horrible history" style and forgetting that they also need to tell a story.

A bit disappointed

I found this audio book disappointing in comparison to its actual literal book counterpart's.

Loved the actual books and would have expected them simply to be read on here for me... Maybe this engages the kids today? But for all the theatre I found it disengaging possiblity due to my experience of the books.

Five stars.

This thing is so funny. Also, the quiz is the best part of the audio book.
