Jones writes and narrates his history of the whole course of the Crusades as a story well stocked with characters and incidents, making it entertaining as well as informative. His British accent is likable, if not the most elegant, and his narration is effective. With effortless-sounding pacing, he is careful to give the proper weight and sense to words, and he shapes sentences, providing emphasis to what's most important. Occasionally, the emphasis is exaggerated, but, in general, his presentation is pleasingly energetic and invigorated by his enthusiasm for his subject. The wide range of his audiobook's history, combined with his able performance, makes this an enjoyable introduction to the period. W.M. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2020]
