Performance :(

the reader's performance almost completely distracted me from the story, sounding robotic at times, the female roles were almost comically bad

slow story, but interesting history

I listened to this entire book while traveling 18 hours across the Country. it was good company on the drive and gives different perspectives on people living in times of knights.

Not the best story or narration

I don't know if it was just a poorly written story or the childish ill-pronounced narration that made it bad. Would not recommend audio book but may be better in hard copy.
