After a promising start with the prologue I was hopeful of a really good read but I was to be disappointed. The dialogue is rubbish, the characters one dimensional, the storyline plodding & uninteresting. Most of the conversations between characters are often stilted & sound more like a single person talking to themselves. The villain's in general are bullying cretins & even the main protagonists are cardboard cutouts that are completely devoid of human complexity. I could only get halfway through this audiobook before I gave up. I would not recommend it.
Russell Bentleys Narration was fine considering the awful material he was working with. I really can't fault him as no amount of effort could save this.
I'm amazed at how many good reviews this book gets. I've always enjoyed historical fiction in particular the Bernard Cornwell Saxon Stories Series. I won't pretend that these are anything else but good fun but The Leopards of Normandy isn't even in the same league. If this is an example of David Churchill's work I won't be reading anything else he's written. Of course this is only my opinion those who liked it are also entitled to theirs.

Where does The Leopards of Normandy: Devil rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
This audio book ranks in the middle of all the audio books that I've listened to so far because of the performance. This is largely due to the pronunciation by the narrator of many of the French words, which really wound me up!
What did you like best about this story?
The story itself, which is fascinating. Would have preferred the written word on this one.
What three words best describe Russell Bentley’s performance?
