Don Hagen has a deep, ominous-sounding voice that has become almost a cliché when it comes to narrating audiobooks on momentous people or events, and he matches this book's dark tone wonderfully. Hagen does a great job narrating this monumental work, and his voice never loses focus or energy. He also reads at a deliberate speed that allows the listener to absorb the daunting scale of this important history. The narration can become monotonous at times, which in some ways is understandable, but it does detract from the listening experience. The audiobook is certainly worth one's time, but listeners may want to pace themselves. R.I.G. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2016]
