Part one is good.
I am a History graduate (although now that is long ago) and wanted to get into this series.
Having just finished and re-listened to the Aubrey Maturin series (narrated by Ric Jerom) I would admit that is a very hard act to follow, but wanted to learn more about the Hundred Years war.
Upto Crecy the book is almost exciting, but the performance is terrible. The reader sounds as if he is reading it for the first time, the emphasis is random, sentences disjointed and the only saving grace is his skill with accents. I kept having to think "That is not how I would have read that...".
Then the book drifts into a totally boring love story with the improbable hero mixing in noble society and the war fades into the background for a dozen chapters.
I may finish this, but there is no way I will go near the second one, and that is not entirely the fault of the production.
