I have previoulsy read these books and audio gives me an added pleasure
Matthew Bartholomew. He is the main character who explains the often convoluted story line very clearly.
Yes. David Thorpe is brilliant in bringing these medieval characters to life. His regional accents add humour and pathos to them. His narration is superb.
It involved me intellectually and made me smile.
Highly recommend this series.
