The Whale Road is a great escape into the fictional life of a young Viking -- the battles, travels, and intrigue of midievil culture and worldview. An enjoyable,extremely well-written and narrated book - perfect for those (like me!)who have enjoyed Cornwell's Saxons stories. This one will not disappoint! Here's hoping more stories are forthcoming...

I am a lover of Robert Low's intelligent yet bloody Viking sagas. But I wondered how his rich tales would translate audibly. So I gave his David Rintaul-read Whale Road a try. Rintaul's Scots voice is charismatic,characterful and Viking enough for me. His theatrical, engaging delivery was a joy to listen to: from capturing the brooding hero Orm, to brutal battles and Low's bountiful insights to the Viking world. I recommend it thoroughly, and wish that more of Low's Oathsworn books would be recorded by Rintaul!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
