Very good., but skip chapters 1 and 14 .

(4 Sterne)

Great book!

(4,5 Sterne)

Although some of the readers are hard to understand, this book is still completely worth a listen. The stories of the battles and the drama of history are going to keep you riveted. Thanks to everyone who put this book in audio form, even if some of you were hard to understand from time to time!

(0,5 Sterne)

Chapter 1 and 14 are done by somebody who can speak English very well and chapter 6 is read by somebody who appears to have just learned how to read. I had to skip those three chapters. Find a better version if available. Nothing worse than not being able to listen to a complete book.

wtf
