(4,372 Sterne; 187 Bewertungen)

There are certain names which are familiar, as names, to all mankind; and every person who seeks for any degree of mental cultivation, feels desirous of informing himself of the leading outlines of their history, that he may know, in brief, what it was in their characters or their doings which has given them so widely-extended a fame. Consequently, great historical names alone are selected; and it has been the writer's aim to present the prominent and leading traits in their characters, and all the important events in their lives, in a bold and free manner, and yet in the plain and simple language which is so obviously required in works which aim at permanent and practical usefulness. This volume is dedicated to Mary Queen of Scots. (Summary from the preface of the book) (5 hr 6 min)

worth while

(4 Sterne)

I agree with the other reviews. A good listen. Kept my attention through the end. Chapter 11 is hard to hear but not impossible. There is a distractive echo in chapter 11. But otherwise nice book. Cheers

I have really enjoyed the book, but Ch 8 Bothwell, skipped during the entire chapter, which made it very annoying!! I would have given it 5 stars had it not been for the loss of that whole chapter.

A Brief Biography

(3 Sterne)

This is an brief, no frills biography of Mary Queen of Scots life and death. Chapter 5 and 11 are poorly recorded and at times difficult to understand.

(5 Sterne)

This is a great narrative of the life of Mary Stewart, Mary Queen of Scots. The eleventh chapter is harder to hear. There is much feedback in the recording.

(3 Sterne)

chapter 11 should be thrown out and re done. how dose this make it. dose any one listen to the chapters before putting it in the final complete book...

Very interesting

(4 Sterne)

The book is great. Chapter 11 is difficult to listen to. The actual reading is good, but the recording has some major issues.

I learned several things about Mary, her life, struggles and triumphs. However, some of the readers were hard to understand.
