I was eager to listen to this book, as Henty seemed a fascinating and perhaps unjustly forgotten author. However, the reader, John Bolen, who reads most of the books from Tantor Media, is a very, very poor reader. Leaden, wooden, ponderous. Feeble attempts to do accents. His attempts at differentiating characters are often down right silly. So, I have abandoned this book, as I have other books he has read, like The Yellow Claw, the Sea Hawk, The Black Tulip. This is especially frustrating, as Tantor has one of the more interesting catalogs of relatively obscure classic fiction.
My advice: Stay away from anything read by John Bolen.

I was fascinated by the history in this book as little is written (in fiction) on this subject. But the reading was extremely weird. The characters were these warrior and viking types and they all sounded like sissies! I think I would have enjoyed this book a lot more if the reader was better.
