Publisher's Summary

In 1167, in the harsh homeland of Mongol tribes, a child was born who was to change the course of human history. His father named him Temujin, but the world knows him as Genghis Khan. Ruler of the Sky brings to life a time of often unendurable hardship and epic grandeur. From the windswept plains of Mongolia to the opulence and sophistication of the Chinese court, this is an unforgettable story. Set amid the barbaric splendor of the Mongol hordes, Ruler of the Sky tells how a twelfth-century warrior forged one of the greatest and most terrifying armies the world had ever seen, and conquered the world from Peking to Persia. Not only is this the story of Genghis Khan, but it is the story of those who were closest to him, particularly the women who played such an important role in his life.

Good Listen

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I would recommend the book as its good value for money ,, The narrator is a little bland but you get used to his monotone voice after a while.. The author made some wild assumptions on Temujin and Jamooka partaking in homosexual activities together .. Completely baseless and unneccessary
but the apart from that it is written well ..


What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

It was no surprise as it is based on history


What three words best describe Bernard Clark’s performance?

Tried his best

his voice acting is not too bad ..


Was Ruler of the Sky worth the listening time?

Its a lot of story for the money


Any additional comments?

I dont think you needed to make up the gay relationship between jamooka and genghis .. The battle scenes were kind of glossed over
