Balance is the defining feature of this first-rate audiobook history of the life and mysterious death of Alexander the Great, a story now 23 centuries old. Anthony Everitt is one of our most reliable and accessible classical historians, and John Lee, as he's demonstrated so many times, is the most compatible of narrators, a distinctive, compelling voice with the uncanny ability to blend into a narrative. Author and narrator understand perfectly the power of restraint, and the suspense inherent in the slow, steady gathering of detail. Here, where romance and legend weigh against modern research and archaeological methods, this greatest of history's adventure stories unfolds with a freshness and clarity rarely experienced in the biography of an ancient figure.
