Found this method whilst trawling through audible languages, free sample section. Just finished the German sample and found it most rewarding - easy to follow and learn. Michel Thomas is really onto something!
Our History in words
Having seen the BBC TV programme and having bought the book, I was delighted to see this volume as audio. I absolutely love this era of our history, particularly the dying embers of Anglo Saxon Britain but also the Tudor age. Written by Simon Schama with such dexterity, keeping the reader interesting at all points and superbly read by Timothy West, an actor of distinction. A super 'listen'.

What a Journey!
Well, having read the book at least eight times over the years, I was delighted when I saw it was in audio format recently. I listen to the book when there is quiet around (which I feel is a must) as you need all your concentration to fully absord the wonders which are presented to you. The use of an American/Latino reader -Luis Mareno- adds to the sense of reality of the piece. I will be moving on to part two shortly and have just purchased A Separate Reality parts 1 & 2 also! Happy Days!
