Would you consider the audio edition of The Lion of Kent to be better than the print version?
I haven't read the print version. I don't think that can be said, because if an audio book is good it had to be because the narrator AND the story is good.
What other book might you compare The Lion of Kent to and why?
Hard to compare, i don't read too much historical books and the ones i had, this was very different from them. I can't think of any book i can compare it to.
Have you listened to any of Sean Crisden’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
No, This is the first book i listen to from this narrator.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
I guess the moment when an important part of the plot was settle was the best, but i can't say more without spoilers
Any additional comments?
Yes, it was a nice book. I liked the historical elements of it. It might not be the most romantic book i've read but it was very nice. I liked the narrator too, but at times it was hard to understand the change of characters, but after a few minutes of listening, i was more used to the change of voices and it was better.
This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
I have no idea, someone who reads a book for the sex... The characters were sketchy at best, the story was almost non-existent and the romance was so meh, I can't say I thought I took it as a real romance. <br/>
What could Aleksandr Voinov and Kate Cotoner have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Improve the characters, give them more personality, make the story more engaging and the romance more convincing.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
The audio narrator was terrible throughout but exceeded himself even further with an unbelievably fake French accents, which sounded more like drunken Russian and indistinguishable English accents for the characters. I almost threw my iPod when I heard his voice for William. The supposed lion sounded like a twink who's put extra effort to sound even more effeminate than required!
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
It was really short!

Where does The Lion of Kent rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
This audiobook is at a higher rank of quality than what I've heard so far. There's a side plot with this and it gels well with the juicy parts. The description is great and the narration and narrative easy to listen through.
Who was your favorite character and why?
William Raven is my favourite character. He is the protagonist and I feel I related more to him due to age than any of the other characters.
What about Sean Crisden’s performance did you like?
He is able to distinguish different characters with different accents and pitches. He was able to imitate Steven in a way that reminded me of a friend of similar personality. He was able to portray Robert as a respectable figure to look up to. And his French accents, at times were a bit hard to follow as is true with the story's intent of a strong French accent.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
It brought me back to my childhood where I would fantasise about being a squire/knight. It didn't really make me laugh or cry but it made me blush (to think if a lesser reaction).
Any additional comments?
Liked the audiobook art as it represents the visual.<br/><br/>The story is well-rounded. The length is what I would consider as an episode. There could be more and I wish there was more but as it is, it is good just as well.
