What made the experience of listening to Admiral of the Ocean Sea the most enjoyable?
This book is a real historian's work. It states clearly what the author knows from different sources and what he personally believes to be true. There are a lot of details about Columbus travels and how people reacted in Europe to the news of these discoveries. However, if you expect to be entertained all along, this might not be a great pick as the book really goes deep into each travel, with a lot of attention to life at sea. Great adventures are also made of some less exciting, or even boring parts and this book will give them to you too.

Where does Admiral of the Ocean Sea rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Samuel Elliot Morison,s volume is unsurpassed. Christopher Columbus was a truly great man deserving a great biography. He got it with Morison's Admiral of the Ocean Sea.
Enjoyably read and great for young readers.
What other book might you compare Admiral of the Ocean Sea to and why?
I would compare it to Whitiker Chamber's autobiography Whitness. It is brilliantly written and deals with great courage.
