Not so much "Tales" as facts
Did like: Interesting facts to use for writing a book or essay. Rather dull research but informative.
Did not like: I expected short stories about this topic.
Probably not. For Audible books, that I listen to while commuting, I enjoy story telling.
Description of a castle which was inhabited by my ancestor.
No. The paper copy would be great for research for writers. I assumed the book was a story-based book.
An auditory learner would really enjoy studying from this book. However, I am looking for historical entertainment.
