Poul Anderson has a wonderful imagination and doesn't hesitate to go into accurate detail of historical periods. The overall concept of the book is sound but the story does drag on at times.
Although I've enjoyed the narrators work before, this is not Tom Weiners' best work and unfortunately it does detract from the overall experience.
If you've liked Anderson's previous work I can still recommend this, but it'll be hard going for those not already a fan.

Was The Boat of a Million Years worth the listening time?
I read this book when it first came out in the late 80's, and it has been in my thoughts ever since. So for maybe 25 years I have, with some regularity, thought back to it. Very few books affect me in this way.I was delighted when it came out in audio form, and spent a whole credit on it.
I still have not finished it. The narration is the most uninspired and monotonous I have ever experienced in a audio fiction book. Akin to a bad lecturer in a subject I'm not really interested in.
Don't waste your credits for this terrible rendition of a wonderful book.
