An excellent survey of Columbus's career, and particularly interesting in the way it devotes attention to all four voyages, rather than focusing on the famous one that started it all. The narrative enables to appreciate Columbus's admirable qualities (his brilliance as a navigator) as well as his flaws (terrible people skills!). You will feel alternately impressed by, horrified at, and sympathetic toward the man.
No problems with the narrator.

What did you like best about Columbus? What did you like least?
Ton's of information, well preformed and interesting. At times the information was difficult to follow. The book bridges a fine line between historical periodical and a story about this tremendously important historical figure. My personal opinion of Columbus was improved by reading this epic tale. Thanks to the author.
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
Gaining an understanding of the effort that went into the voyages
Have you listened to any of Tim Jerome’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Not that I am aware of but this performance was good!
Could you see Columbus being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
At first no, but now that I think of it there is enough richness in the details for a screenwriter to simplify and organize the book into mini stories. I could totally see a John Malkovich type as Columbus.
