No


Would you be willing to try another one of Christopher Oxford’s performances?

No, he is the worst reader by far of any audiobook I have listened to.


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Soldier of Fortune?

Everything


Any additional comments?

The plot was nonsense; the historical aspect was delivered as though it was part of a non-fiction account of Marlborough's campaign and seemed completely unconnected with the fictional part; the relationship between Marlborough and Daniel Rawson was farcical to the point of unbelievability and Christopher Oxford's rendition of different characters' voices would have been comical if it had not been so intensely annoying.
