For the five years remaining to him, betrayals, intrigues, wars, and illness were ever present. So were his infidelities, perhaps a pattern set by his father’s faithlessness to Eleanor. But the courage, compassion, and intelligence of this warrior king became the stuff of legend, and A King’s Ransom brings the man and his world fully and powerfully alive.

Would you consider the audio edition of A King's Ransom to be better than the print version?
NO. Penman's writing is so crisp, so clear, so colorful. This is the first audio of hers I've listened to and I was disappointed. King Richard sounded like Thurston Howell III on painkillers and Richard's queen Berengaria's voice was so simpering and insipid I wanted to scream every time she had dialogue.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Joanna of course.
Would you be willing to try another one of Emily Gray’s performances?
No thank you.
Who was the most memorable character of A King's Ransom and why?
Eleanor of course. What an amazing woman she was!!!

Ditto with previous reviewer
Listening to Emily Gray was painful , the Female voices sounded like little girls or such a deep voice it could have been a mans voice . Even with changes in characters her voice was so monotoned. Seemed she was just reading words and then sentences without much emphasis . Great story .
