Its rare that I bother reviewing anything but I absolutely loved this book, I thoroughly enjoyed the first guide in audiobook format so this one was eagerly awaited and well worth it.
The narrator is wonderful and keeps the interest of the listener but it wasn't difficult, the style of writing is totally engaging and its very easy to loose yourself in the world being described. I would normally read or listen to a book and would struggle to remember half of what I have learned within a few hours, but the style used here makes every image stick with you.
I would highly recommend this book for anyone with even a passing interest in history.
