As I listened to this book, I was thinking how would I describe the writing. I thought that it sounded similar to a history text book, that you would have in middle school. Then I read about the author. Alex Rutherford is a pen name for a married couple who have written many non-fiction books.
Non-fiction is what this reads most like. It seems it was based on a real man who wrote the first autobiography in Islamic literature. If you read it like a text book then you will learn about life at this time and place, but for entertainment it is lacking.
May I suggest that you read Conn Iggulden's Genghis series, starting with Genghis: Birth Of An Empire. It is a great book and a great series. You can not go wrong with Iggulden.
