Fascinating book but at times difficult to listen
The narrator chops the phrases with strong accent on some syllables and sharp unmelodic intonation. This could be irritating and distracting at times... Towards the end I wasn't noticing this as much but found it difficult to immerse into the story because of this.

EXCELLENT ENJOYABLE HISTORICAL MEDIEVAL QUEENS
This is an excellent book for anyone who loves English history and as usual is based on the primary source materials Weir researches for the backgrounds of these UK Queens. Narrated clearly and pleasing which helps to keep the interest flowing.
A book for both those with an interest in royal history and whom are academic. Enjoyable and written with a storyline not just a book of historical information.
A long book; so be prepared for weeks of pleasurable informative listening. I love it.
