Have listened to this for a couple of evenings, and find it fascinating. Ruth Goodman has not only done meticulous research to offer an intimate view of what life during the Tudor period would have been like for the average person, she has a delightfully engaging way of presenting it. What could easily be dull information, she has presented in a manner that has made all this fascinating. Now, at last, for instance, I have learned a good explanation for why Shakespeare left his "second best bed" to his wife. And this book is narrated beautifully. What I find best about it is that I can return to it time and again to learn new things I didn't pick up fully in the first listen. Highly recommend. If you are someone who enjoys going to Renaissance festivals, this book might be for you. Or if you just enjoy having a deeper peek into the lives of folk from the time of the Tudors in England. Quite a fun listen.

Interesting & funny. Good narrator. I would also like to listen to her How to be Victorian book, if anyone would record that one.
