A very useful version

If you know The Faerie Queene or you are looking for a way to get to know it better this is a useful tool for getting through the mammoth amount of reading that is otherwise involved. David Timson narrates very well and gives life to what can be a very difficult read sometimes. If you are not familiar with the Faerie Queene though be warned, it may be difficult to keep up with the narration and you may find yourself getting lost regularly as a result.
