I would recommend but it's not one of the best and the series is much better than this one
The series is a fascinating one and you can learn so much about the period which is lacking in May other books.
No, I didn't find his style of delivery interesting at all and his change of accents was not a patch on Paul Matthews. I found some of the accents positively irritating and he had a tendency to drone!
No I don't think there is anything to add but it was informative for those of us who have read all the previous books as it gave detail to how Crowner John became what he was and his relationship with King Richard which has been alluded to throughout the series.
I found the Crowner John series, riveting and couldn't wait for the next one! I do hope that Bernard Knight finds another role for Crowner John so we can hear more of him and his interesting characters? The setting and time period is particularly fascinating as there is no better author for the realistic descriptions of medieval life than Bernard Knight.
