As a Persian woman, it was difficult to enjoy this book. Though well written and a worthy story, I found it historically and culturally inaccurate and at times offensive.
An example is the multiple mentions of Ebn Sīna as an Arab!
When in fact, he was Persian. It would be like calling DeSCartes a British ! Blasphemy !

This may be a fantastic book but I couldn’t get through 5 minutes of listening. The voice is banal and the accent is weird. It sound like a combo of British and South Boston.

This is truly awful narrative.
I found it impossible to listen to for more than ten minutes. Absolute waste of money.
I was looking forward to listen to this great tale, but I will remove this performance from my device.
I hate the voice, style of reading, accent, everything. I would not buy another recording read by this guy.
Bring on John Lee (Ken Follett books!!)
Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
this was a diverting if far fetched story. Completely spoiled by the narrator who struggled to pronounce common English words.
Would you be willing to try another one of Richard Higgins’s performances?
Absolutely not a chance. Not only did he mispronounce common English words, he paid no attention to the grammar of the text and so it was hard to follow in places. It was shockingly bad.
