What made the experience of listening to The Warriors the most enjoyable?

BOOK: (Amazon Summary) The Kent Family Chronicles Book VI; The glittering saga of our America-and the people who made her great. As the Civil War draws to its inevitable climax, The Warriors carries the turbulent chronicle of the divided Kent family to far-reaching new battlefields. A gracious Southern plantation ravaged by Union soldiers as the blacks cry for "Jubilee"... the bright trail westward blazed by the Union Pacific Railroad, and its lusty Traveling Towns and savage Indian raids...the plush eastern mansions of the Robber Barons-Gould, Fisk and drew...the seething conclaves of the new trade unions-these are the scenes of a nation's rebirth and of the Kents' private, impassioned wars... These are the backdrops as well for stirring romantic entanglements. When young Jeremiah Kent is tempted by a lascivious Southern belle into a web of lust and murder...and Michael Boyle longs for a lovely immigrant girl, Hannah...the destiny of the Kent dynasty is set on an irreversible course into the great American future.

NARRATION: Marc Vietor narrates the entire series which is a plus. I like the consistency of hearing the same voice throughout the story line. The voices are well done, female and male are easily distinguishable.
