Every lecture has a lot of information that is cut and prepared in way easy to follow and digest. It is one of the best courses I have followed so far.

This is Yasmine autobiography, showing her character strength and the negative impact religious fanaticism can have in a person. Highly recommended to everyone.

interesting summary of a complex theme

The author/narrator shows his mastery I the area during all the lectures: shows an incredible amount of knowledge and enthusiasm for the subject that is contagious, however there are certain aspects where he muddles the subject too much, for example when commenting the food restrictions of early Christian or the changes imposed during the Reform, when in his desire to make the subject clear makes it harder to follow. Additionally, shows an interesting partiality towards the organic movements and against GMOs in the late lectures. Nevertheless, I consider this course as an excellent corner stone to learn more Simon the subject.

Stupendo!

Da chimico, i racconti e aneddoti mi sono affascinati, sono belli e fanno capire come pochi questo mestiere. Il narratore li dà un tocco di nostalgia e lontananza a contenuto del libro dandogli un sapore tutto suo. La mia unica critica e sul volume della musica che si ascolta fra i capitoli che è troppo alta, soprattutto se usi le cuffie.

Good course with some issues.

In general terms, this is a good course but it bothered me that the lecturer kept saying he didn't have time to cover x subject in depth. To be honest, you don't expect that from an audiobook even if it is similar to a course in an university. Sometimes the lecturer made pauses that made me check whether the app had an issue. However, the course was a pretty good introduction to Roman history, covering a long time, from the foundation to the third century crisis.

The story does not ad much to the Star Wars lore but offers some glimpses into Anakin's mind and how he accepts his role as Darth Vader, Sith apprentice and empire enforcer but makes Shryne a much better character.It is entertaining but not the best from James Luceno. On the other hand, the narration is excellent, really enjoyable from the sound effects to the characterization of the narrator.

In my opinion, this is the worst of the trilogy, even if get more of how Darth Zannah develops as a character. Sadly there are deus ex machina moments that are too evident. On the other hand, the narrator was impressive, excellent work.

Great conclusion

I had read the to previous books and wanted to conclude the trilogy. Being a bit disappointed by the previous two, and not very engaged by the beginning of the book, I have to say this one was the best in the trilogy: great pace and action, and an excellent description of the Sith philosophy added by Darth Bane. A really enjoyable adventure. The narrator spiced the story in a perfect way, adding excitment and emotion at right time in the right place.

This book introduced me to the history of Rome when I was younger. It was a pleasure to listen it again in it's original language, appreciating the author opinion and vision, and comparing it with more recent works on the subject. It was great, even when I didn't agree with some of his opinions. I strongly recommend this book to whoever's wants to start the journey through Roman history.

Regarding the narration, this was done clear with enough emotion and gusto but compared with others I've listened a bit monotone. Nevertheless, the narrator fulfills his job very well.

Excellent book

The prose is easy to follow, and entertaining, and covering several aspects about the Roman civilization not always covered by more traditional book. The comparison between what classical authors tell us and what archeology has found is simply fascinating.

Regarding the narration, this was done in a tone according with the subject and with an excellent tone, always keeping the listener interested in what comes next.
