Just goes to show how the voice of the reader makes all the difference. While two prior reviewers seem to have loved the voice of Jack Davenport, I couldn't make it past the first couple of chapters with him. He's one of those that feels that the softer he speaks, the more dramatic what he says will be. At some of the most dramatic moments, his voice almost dropped off the scale entirely. My annoyance kept growing until I lost any interest in the story and just wanted to throw the CD player across the room to make it stop. So unfortunately, I can't review the book itself, only the presentation. As always, your mileage may vary.

The only aspect of his audio that kept me going was the reader Jack Davenport. Redundant, overly-overly long & confusing to me with details I'm not that interested in. However, if true facts about inner working of this issue of Eastern/Roman church, it is significant. Not the least bit surprising how corrupt the church powers are. Skimmed alot!
