Would you consider the audio edition of Shores of Knowledge to be better than the print version?
No. The print version would be better for names, but audio is easier on the eyes.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Bartolomé de las Casas, the first to revolt against the atrocities of the Spanish conquistadors and do something against it.
What about Joel Richards’s performance did you like?
He spoke clearly and pleasantly. However, he did not do too well with foreign names, especially French.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes. It is full of interesting material. I may well listen to it again.
Any additional comments?
I am always grateful for books that put historical events into perspective. This one helped me to understand better the development of the modern world. I could have give it 5 stars, but it did not make me quite as excited as some other books I've listened to, so I somewhat reluctantly reduced it to 4 for the sake of making the distinction. However, I do recommend this book.
