This is a good source to learn about the Crusades, but seems to be severely one-sided and focuses on the Christian angle, without much focus on what the Muslims were doing.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
I found it very difficult to follow the flow of this book. Incidents were described "serially" rather than "chronologically" so that someone who died in one story line would play a prominent role in a story line much later in the book. In written form, this might not have been an issue, but I found it a confusing listen.
What didn’t you like about Deryn Edwards’s performance?
The reader did an okay job some times, but seemed to lack interest in the contents of the book. As an example, when starting a new chapter, the words "Chapter Two" or whichever was read almost as part of the previous sentence rather than being emphasized.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
As I mentioned above, this book would probably be fine in written form. There were lots of details throughout and despite my confusion I did learn a few interesting details.
