Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by John Lee

Biography & Memoir • 33 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

The pleasures of Roberts’s big, richly detailed biography of the great French conqueror are enhanced in this outstanding audiobook production. John Lee is a steady and agreeable narrator, and a good choice for a work this long. Based on the recent full publication of the 33,000 letters Napoleon wrote in his lifetime, the narrative offers a close-up and largely sympathetic view of one of history’s most interesting, accomplished, and—yes—likable personalities. Lee maintains the fine balance between intimacy and perspective, as well as between Napoleon’s current and former reputation, to make this one of the stellar histories and audiobook adaptations of this year.
