KING OF THE VAGABONDS The Baroque Cycle, Book 2

by | Read by Simon Prebble, Kevin Pariseau

Fiction • 11.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2003

Most tales of “olde” times are replete with castles, robed lords and ladies, and handsome men on horseback. But what about the wretches they pass on the side of the road as they go off to a lively joust? KING OF THE VAGABONDS is about those men, the poor, the grifters, whose names are lost to history—the vagabonds. Stephenson's novel tells their story, with the able help of storyteller Simon Prebble. Prebble's witty banter is perfect as the voice of Jack, a knave who is out to prove that even a lowborn can succeed in seventeenth- and eighteenth-century Europe. Prebble even does a great job with the historical characters such as Isaac Newton, Ben Franklin, and others. Equal parts action and adventure, along with a healthy dose of humor, make this a great listen. M.S. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2011]
