Awesome story and a new aspect of Machiavelli I didn't know. Anyhow the narrator destroyed it by terrible narrating. It completely feels like she's reading something she doesn't understand.

Content good and timely. Poor choice of narrator, whose sing-song voice is most irritating, more suitable to children’s books.

really interesting account of Florence in the period of Machiavelli's life. it's a bit of an apology for Machiavelli. the author has a crush.
narration is a bit weird
Karen Saltus has a lovely voice who has previous works in personal and professional development. She was, however, poorly assigned to this book which required a voice with more solemnity and gravitas.
When recounting the invasion of Florence, where thousands were killed and countless more were raped and had their lives destroyed, I felt like someone was flirting with me at a bar. Such a mismatch. I was agog.
For a joke, I would play excerpts to friends. Oh we would laugh.
I’d say get this book in hard copy. The author must be devastated at the final product.
