Terrific story! Not my favorite narrator...
Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
The poetry that opened each chapter gave such a marked elegance to the text and a chivalrous ambience to the portrayal of the people. The description of the land and the manner and attire of the people were so carefully detailed as to be perfect for a student studying the time period. Historical references were intermingled with a delightful story of honor and avarice, fortune and despair, which made you admire and feel for even some of the most despised characters.
I originally began to listen to this book narrated by Jim Killavey, and although it has high reviews, I personally found his voice or possibly the recording a little grating. So halfway through, I bought the recording by Michael Page whose voices are so expressive and distinct, that I understood the book better. I enjoyed Michael Page's version greatly, and even laughed out loud at some of the ways he expressed some of the lines of the jester and Cedric. But don't take my word for it. Listen carefully to the samples from both, and pick for yourself!
