Would you try another book from Christopher Hibbert and/or Michael Page?
I was interested in learning more about the Medicis so this seemed to be a good choice. It would no doubt have been better as an actual book but as an audio book, the endless list of people involved in every part of the book made it difficult to follow the "plot" - to get the bigger picture of the history. It just seemed like an encyclopedic listing of all the family members and their neighbors. I did make it about 90% of the way through but ultimately couldn't finish it. All that said, I did get a general sense of the history of the family. I probably wouldn't buy another book from this author though. Michael Page's narration was fine - seemed like authentic Italian pronunciation of the many, many names and titles.

I would have loved to learn more about Catherine de Medici, the French regent. Fun stories to listen to.
