Described as a chronicle of "the collision of the world's smallest organism with the world's mightiest power," Rosen's work promises a sweeping examination of the Golden Age of Constantinople. Rich in the detail so beloved by fans of historical narrative, the story is as compelling and dramatic as a novel. All of this makes Barrett Whitener's atonal narration that much more disappointing. Whitener has previously won Earphone Awards, leading one to anticipate a performance reflecting the "passion, panache, and attitude" heralded in the book's reviews. But, although his voice is clear, his tone and performance are flat. Whitener's narration does not enhance the experience of listening to this unique historical work.
