Would you listen to The Trial of Charles I again? Why?
Yes I would-in an age of text, internet and all sorts of deformed communication it is exhilarating to listen to English the way it was spoken and read in the 1600's. Once your ears become accustomed to the language it's a revelation.
What did you like best about this story?
I particularly liked the commitment to primary sources-these people were there! With minor emphasis on the battles and Oliver Cromwell and no hindsight, the important characters in the narrative come alive.
What does David Thorn bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
I really enjoyed his portrayal of Charles Stuart-the stutter and the accent; I enjoyed the tone David Thorn used in emphasising the frustration of the Commons court.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I knew the ending so I was not bothered.
Any additional comments?
The richness of the English language should not be lost in a 140 characters and I would encourage everyone to explore our incredible heritage.
