Listeners find themselves in a mind-bending tale set in the sixteenth century. This rich, eclectic mix of fact and fiction includes a variety of historical characters spread across the globe, who provide narrator Robert Fass with the challenge of voicing a wide and diverse cast. His dry delivery style perfectly complements the whimsical nature of the story. He neither hams it up nor gives dramatic emphasis to the darker scenes. His approach allows the wonderfully eccentric text to speak for itself, enhanced by his authentic pronunciations as scenes cross international borders. This is a one-of-a-kind listen for people looking to try something a little different. K.J.P. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2016]
