THE FIRST KINGDOM

by | Read by Kris Dyer

History • 16 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Historian Max Adams's well-researched reconstruction of Britain in the dark period following the Roman occupation will fascinate history buffs but probably not draw many audiobook fans. The emphasis here is on detail--the painstaking work of linguists, archaeologists, and other scholars and specialists. The narrative focus, thus, is on relics--"the age of Arthur" hasn't much action, or any particular narrative, and no Arthur. Kris Dyer, though an accomplished narrator, proves to be too measured a voice for a narrative so categorical, and so loaded with specifics. Probably no narrator could have done better. If this period in history interests you, this is an excellent reexamination of many old myths and suppositions. D.A.W. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2021]
