The information within the book is informative and interesting,however the narration was not to my liking. I could not get used to the soft almost uninterested American / Canadian accent of the narrator.
Do not listen whilst driving - He’ll put you to sleep!
Good book on the Vikings that puts the Vikings in the larger perspective of history.
Very interesting history. I didn’t realize the impact the early northmen had on European history. That was such a brutal era. I was particularly intrigued by the authors conclusion that painted the overall Viking influence as positive despite their continual mayhem because it resulted in more diverse and united countries. Same argument is made about the Kahns later reign of terror on humanity. Basically you have to break it before you can fix it. Personally, I have a more positive outlook on humanity than that.
I found this an very interesting and informative book, well researched and comfortably presented,with a very pleasant narrator.
Narrator had excellent voice throughout. Great information on a long forgotten age. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
If you can make it past the first 2 1/2 hours the book becomes quit interesting.
Interesting book however there was numerous repeats of describing the techniques of the Vikings. I would think it could have been described as “once again” or “their notorious ways of handling the conquered” ... All in all, it was good history.
