Terrible narration

I have started to listen to this bike twice but the narration is so terrible I cannot continue. The narrator sounds like he is teaching to a kindergarten class. A more annoying narration I have not heard in my years of listening to books on audio.
Unless you enjoy the punishment of bleeding ears - give it a big miss - which is a pity as I am sure it would be a good book, I may actually have to buy a copy of the actual book

a good read

I was very surprised by how much this book caught my interest - while it is certainly not great historical masterwork - it certainly entertaining and a view into the medieval world of England.
Enjoy it for what it is a sprawling colorful novel - not a long historical tome

Looked like a good book from the synopsis - was the wrong. How could a main character be so stupid and be able to dress himself - uses every sterotype imaginable - The reader sounded like he was reading a Dr Seuss book (maybe that is what it is). I finished listening to it in morbid fascination - just to see if it could get worse - it did.

It is impossible to identify with any of the characters - Seemed like the author was trying to write a comedy book - problem he has no sense of humor

I know why his girlfriend left him

Oh what a mess = made it halfway through the 2nd part and gave up - unbelievable, boring, long winded, Oh and the reason his girlfriend left him - he is AN IDIOT.
Do not waste your time or money
