Historical Fiction • 19 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1974

With the recent publication of Homeland, John Jakes's earlier works are enjoying a revival. The Bastard is the first book of his series, the Kent Family Chronicles, published in 1974. It introduces the fictional hero Phillipe Charboneau, aka Philip Kent. John Morris's clear voice and the high quality production of this piece make the story come alive. However, the lengthy historical romance is read without benefit of accents or vocal variation. There are a few complex segments in which it is difficult for the listener to distinguish which character is speaking. Despite this minor flaw, The Bastard is sure to be popular.
