Publisher's Summary

In the middle of the 12th Century an unknown Christian sect emerged in southern France. They claimed to be the sole successors of the original Church of Jesus Christ. They called themselves Cathars. Despite their sincere belief, the Cathars were deemed by the Roman Church to oppose several of their fundamental principles of Christianity. Because of these unorthodox practices the Cathars were outlawed by the Church of Rome, and sentenced to a merciless extinction.

Amateur reading, superficial story

Would you try another book written by Mike Hoare or narrated by Mike Hoare?

This depends on the availability of other books on the subject being considered

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Mike Hoare?

This is read in an amateurish way with cats heard in the background! Needs a professional actor or presenter for this.

Do you think The Last Days of the Cathars needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Not really. The story is fully covered though in a superficial way. Fortunately for me I have enough background of the Cathars to be able to make sense of the story.

Any additional comments?

This is the only book in Audible on the subject of Cathars and therefore is the best available. A much better book is "The Cathars: The Rise and Fall of the Great Heresy" by Sean Martin (available on Kindle) and would benefit from being an audiobook.

More of a sermon (so far). Not what I wanted

Would you try another book written by Mike Hoare or narrated by Mike Hoare?

No, probably not

Would you ever listen to anything by Mike Hoare again?

Not certain

What three words best describe Mike Hoare’s performance?

Self serving sermon

Any additional comments?

Not what I'd expected. The more I listened the more it reminded me of a sermon on a soapbox. I wanted a passionate history - not for me I'm afraid. What on earth is the point of all the bible references?
