History • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 1997

This interesting view of Irish history at the time of the Dark Ages begins after the fall of Rome. Cahill's work will particularly interest medievalists and students of Irish culture while the casual listener may be bogged down in post-Roman events and shifts of power. Liam Neeson's rich, smooth voice delineates each element of political, religious and cultural alliance. He adds appropriate emphasis to details and gives context and scale to the narration. The cadence and softened consonants of his speech make appealing and pleasant listening. Though recording this work makes it accessible to an audience who might not otherwise read Cahill's work, the density and detail of this history demand studied listening.
