Incredible narration

This is the best narration I have ever heard in an audiobook! Truly brings the story alive and with just the right intonations and spirit. I’ll be looking for other books narrated by Johnathon Keeble!

Pretty brutal depiction of post roman Britain.

Grew on me after getting through initial strangeness but once the world is built, immensely enjoyable and kept me busy on Wikipedia. Apart from long winded exposition, very interesting and a brutal affair.

Excellent!

Bernard Cornwell is one of my all-time favourite historical fiction authors, and Jonathan Keeble (who also reads the first four books of The Last Kingdom series) interprets this story superbly, capturing the gruffness, brutality and passion of post-Roman Britain. I will definitely listen to this again in the future, and anything by Cornwell with Keeble reading is top of my post for future listens!

Enjoyed it!

Wasn't as focused on warfare strategy like The Last Kingdom series. More political but I still enjoyed it. I like the down to earth take on the Arthurian Legend.

awesome Arthur story

I feel like this is the real story of King Arthur. The characters are well written and there is a badass battle at the end

A better take on Arthurian legend

What a great story, with a fresh take on the characters. I was always annoyed by the traditional story of Guinevere and Lancelot as star-crossed lovers for whom you were supposed to feel sympathy. Well, not to give too much away, but you see those characters very differently in this telling! The narration is first-rate, and the story gripping. Cornwell is a master of the genre.

Not perfect but pretty damn close.

I've owned this on both paper and audiobook and the both are great. The voice actor did a good job on this one. some of the characters aren't how I imagined them but it's not really a problem. 5/5 from me.

Long in the tooth...BUT!

Admirably done
A great take on an old story. Made you do some research on pre-Roman Briton. Takes the fictional literary yarn of Author much more human.
Twas a bit long but gripping in the end. Bernard Cornwell delivers for me.

Slow and boring

Story was so slow, i almost stopped in many occasions. The accents were poor and really annoying. I had high hopes as I love the sharpe series by Bernard Cornwall, but I will not be getting the second in the series.
