What made the experience of listening to Dominion the most enjoyable?
Good scene setting and thoughtful character development. Good fictional account of an alternative ending to the second World War.

What about Daniel Weyman’s performance did you like?
Sonorific voice that suited the main character
Any additional comments?
In May 1940 the meeting between Halifax Chamberlain and Churchill really did have a slightly surprising outcome - Churchill formed the government - despite the King and much of the Conservative party favouring Halifax - this what if book looks at what would have happened if the meeting had gone the other way.My real life great uncle (a member of the war cabinet) is killed in this book!
Just wanted to say, this is my first C.J Sansom book and certainly not my last. What a great listen and very well narrated by Daniel Weyman, who's dulcet voice and diverse range of accents, settles you perfectly into the mood of the story. Set in an alternative historical Post-WWII 1950s period, Great Britain by then had made a truce with Nazi Germany. This ended the war prematurely by 1940, turning the British government into a anti-Semitic, fascist regime under the German 3rd Reich control. Yet somehow the novel doesn't come across as a yawnful 'Period' piece novel. It has a modern contemporary flow about it which is so much easier on the ear. Dominion is certainly one of my favourite, and most exciting books i've listened to in a long time and recommend this to anyone who likes a good atmospheric spy thriller! Should be made into a film in my opinion! Good job C.J Sansom!

A fantastic novel that is well written with slowly building tension. It draws you into an England that just might have been, if the cards had fallen just a little differently. C J Sansom always writes entertaining books, but I think this is his best yet.
