The story consists of too many historical dates and places and jumps back and forth. Although the historical events are interesting, it's difficult to follow.
This book was not what I expected it to be. Overall it was fine. Just not for me.
Elvis Mathias has the voice and cadence of an academically inclined angel. His speech is so soothing it that one could nearly miss the horrendous nature of the acts and events he describes. He could soothe me to sleep and give me terrible nightmares at the same time.
Great listen, interesting book, 10/10, will recommend to friends and listen again in the future.
I'm a historian by training and education. This book is a good chronology, but the story is drab. The narration makes it somewhat worse and the tone and clip makes it a recitation over a historical account.
Difficult to hear. Seems to jump from one horrific act to another. Burn these people's eyes out etc.
