Publisher's Summary

London, 1605: A new king sits upon the throne of England, but not everyone is pleased with this Protestant monarch. A group of conspirators scheme to overthrow him and restore Catholic rule; by igniting an explosion directly beneath Parliament! For their plot to succeed, these traitors need the perfect assassin; a man named Guy Fawkes.

Guy Fawkes: A Desperate Remedy reveals the true story behind the Gunpowder Plot. This unique novella allows readers to join Fawkes as he becomes embroiled in history's most notorious assassination attempt on the life of a British Sovereign. From secretly hatching a murderous revolt, to carefully building a deadly bomb, to ultimately striking a fateful match, we hear Guy Fawkes from his first rebellious thoughts to his final bitter reflections. Great for history buffs and those interested in the truth behind the legend, told in the unique Word of Mouth Productions way, combining narration with acting and excellent music and special effects. Narrated by the acclaimed Virginia Byron with additional additional dialogue by Brendan Sheppard and David Keogh.

A lot more theatrical then I expected.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It's a very short book, so it's pretty easy to listen to in a go.

Any additional comments?

I was rather surprised by this book. It's more of a radio program then a book on tape sort of thing. They have voice actors for all the characters, sound effects, and background music. It made it very engaging to listen to. I'm not sure why they had a female as the main narrator. Not that she did a bad job, she was an excellent narrator who played the part excellently, but she was playing the part of Guy Fawkes, who probably didn't have a female voice.

This book, while extremely informative and entertaining, is more of a story then a history lesson. It's written from Guy Fawke's point of view, and tells his side of the story. It's too bad it's so short, I rather enjoyed it. Not what I was expecting, but amusing nontheless.
