EMPIRES OF THE NORMANS Makers of Europe, Conquerors of Asia

by | Read by Luke Thompson

History • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

The violent, complex history of the medieval Normans in France, England, Italy, and the Middle East and their outsize, indelible mark on history make for a remarkable story. Yet it's Norman history that the mouse in ALICE IN WONDERLAND reads to soaked characters as "the driest thing I know." Narrator Luke Thompson works hard to avoid drying out the listener by bringing a personal-sounding expressiveness to his performance. His varied tones, always appropriate to the text, express his feelings, doubts, questions, and reactions as if the story were his own. His likable voice and British accent, aided by his casually excellent pronunciation of French, provide a firm base for his voice acting, rendering this remarkable history more pleasing than dry for the listener.
