REBELLION The History of England from James I to the Glorious Revolution

by | Read by Clive Chafer

History • 19 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

Ackroyd’s history of Britain in the 1600s has many dramatic high points, but its audio delivery proves wearisome. Clive Chafer is an accomplished narrator, with many fine titles to his credit. But he’s locked into a professional style that puts heavy weight onto the closing word in a sentence, clause, or phrase, and, once noticed, this practice becomes more and more distracting, and soon monotonous. Possibly this is a matter of taste, and another ear will hear him differently. Ackroyd’s history proves to be fascinating and well told, and can be recommended on its own merits.
