What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
To make the theological (he called it cosmology) narration and explanation clearer and simpler. To give reference for all the rulers history, which was given as facts without supporting evidence. Less confusing new names that kept being introduced, without making emphasis on who are the main characters to concentrate on. Also, the narrator was not familiar with how to pronounce the names as we are used to call them in other history books (may be he was using Iranian way of pronunciation, but it was difficult to follow).
What will your next listen be?
Another book on ancient history, but from Great Courses library.
What didn’t you like about Mark Delgado’s performance?
Too quick in reading especially with many new names (some are trivial characters) and pronouncing their names in a different way than other history books do.
What character would you cut from Ancient Iran?
To shorten the theology (cosmology) and to emphasise who are the main characters in the story.
