Fun Historical Book
The first recorded book I ever heard more than 20 years ago was "The Travels of Marco Polo" and I was hooked. Marco Polo's adventures still seemed exotic, fantastic, and surreal but the drawback was he'd be talking about places that had names that didn't correlate with the present, he would describe certain things, for example unicorns, that left you wondering what he saw, and more. This book helps put all these pieces together, explains historical background of the period and places, and explores Marco himself.
The book is fun, entertaining, easy to listen to, and has a great reader. Wonderful historical adventure.
