One of the few books I've listened to in the past few years that I didn't want to end, excellent story and narration.

As a follow on this was poor,

What would have made Conquest better?

This story felt like a children story at times, weak plot based around facts. The characters were poor super hero types?

I was really looking forward to this book after the last by Stewart Binns but it almost as if he ran out of ideas

The narrative really got on my nerves,

Had to listen but dont know why


What could Stewart Binns have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

made it like previous novel


You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

It gives an idea of history and the Norman invasion, problem was I knew what would happen as I know this part of history


Any additional comments?

Maybe a good book for kids to learn about history
