Dan Jones is a highly skilled popular historian, and his knack for narration makes him a fine match for his own work. In both writing and reading, he's foremost a storyteller. Here he recounts the "long Middle Ages" of Europe and the Near East--from late Rome to the early Renaissance--through well-paced exposition interspersed with illuminating in-depth episodes, a pleasing mixture of overview and detail. His congenial British accent, spry tone, and energy make listening and comprehension easy. His intonation and emphases ensure that the material is clear, and his enthusiasm enlivens it. This canter through a thousand years and more of history is a happy marriage of enjoyment and information. W.M. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2022]
