Horrible Narration

The writing isn't the best. It jumps around time wise but the narration makes the whole thing worse. It sounds like the longest sentence in history. The whole time I kept wondering why the narrator was so angry. He must have been very angry about the contract he was working under, or at the author, or at his boss, or at his wife, or at something because he murdered this story with his awful narration. I've added him to my Bad Narrators list.

Interesting but dry

This is a very interesting story about an important historical time. The author did a great job of documenting the events. At times the book does sound like a list of facts though. I think it would have been more interesting to hear about the important people's lives and how they interacted. A good book regardless.
