3.0 out of 5 stars Great story but not the best performance, 17 Nov 2008
This review is from: The Lords of the North (The Warrior Chronicles, Book 3) (Audio CD)
I've listened to all of Bernard Cornwell's Saxon series in audiobook format (and read them in hardcover, too) and this is an OK version of book 3. I'm not going to comment on the plot but rather about the reader. If you are going to listen to a book, the reader is as important as the content. The right reader can bring a good story to another level. Unfortunately, while Jamie Glover is a good reader but this is not the best version available. Hold out for the one read by Richard Armitage. His reading is far superior to the other narrators (Tom Sellwood reads the unabridged version and Jamie Glover's version is abridged). It's a shame that Amazon doesn't sell Mr. Armitage's version but you can get it through audiobookcollection{.com}.

having just finished reading the latest saxon series book ' Death of Kings' I have to agree with this reviewer Lords of the North read by Richard Armitage has meant that I can hear his 'voice' as Uthred in every subsequent book that I have read in the series. This adds so much more to the experience if Cornwells writing.

Rats !...Wish I'd read this review before ordering this particular version of the audiobook.
Thought I was getting an unabridged version...WRONG !!
Never mind....If I like the abridged version, I'll dig deep and order the 'proper' version from audiogo.
