That....was one of the most boring books I've ever listened to. Even being abridged (All the good & important stuff left in, yeah? Isn't that how it goes?) and read by Sean "Sex On Legs Whose Voice Makes Me Puddle" Bean couldn't save it.
Beats me why Cornwell's books are so beloved. I can't get into his writing, no matter how hard I try. I hear his Uhtred books are Teh Awsum, but I'll take y'alls words for it. Not going there myself. I fall asleep too easily enough as it is.
