Much better than I was expecting!,
This review is from: The Eagle of the Ninth (BBC Radio) (Audio CD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I had this set of disks in my hot little hands before I realised that a)it was a dramatisation of the book, not a reading of the book itself, and b) the original book was actually a 'young adults' book.
Both a) and b) left me feeling 'I'm not really going to enjoy this...'
I needn't have worried. It really is a cracking yarn, and the dramatisation is first-rate. I don't want to spoil the story in any way, but if you have the slightest interest in the Roman/Ancient world, Ancient Britain, or if you just enjoy a good story, then I recommend this very highly. It's two hours of very enjoyable listening!
