Minor reservations, but a big Yes
Where does Agincourt rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
It's a great audiobook. The author's enthusiasm and knowledge swept me up and carried me along, and I loved the whole experience.
Who was your favorite character and why?
It's a factual book; there are no "characters". But I recognised Juliet Barker's knowledge and appreciation of Henry V.
What about Elliot Cowan’s performance did you like?
His voice enlivens the text and makes it easy to listen to, but his pronunciation of certain words (English as well as French) is somewhat surprising. Luckily, it's also amusing.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
No, there was beauty in it from beginning to end.
Any additional comments?
I can't understand why nobody ran the reader's version of French names past a native (or educated) French speaker. It wouldn't have taken long; I'd have done it for free.

I would just like to say that I found this story both stimulating and vivid. I could visual the details due the book and the excellent vocal skills of Mr Cowan. I hope that Mr Cowan will record more books as his voice contributed a great deal to the enjoyment of the novel.
