Duration: 6 hours, 15 minutes
|King George III (1738-1820)|
If you are listening to this audiobook to get a complete history of England, you will be sorely disappointed. This series cherry picks the interesting and fun stories (the type I love to tell in the classroom) and strings them together for a most entertaining listen.
Lacey reads the book himself and does a very good job. Sometimes it can be a problem when the author reads his or her own work in an audiobook format but as a reader Lacey was everything a listener could ask for.
I rate this audiobook 5 stars out of 5 and it can be found on Amazon.com here: Great Tales from English History, Volume III: The Battle of the Boyne to DNA by Robert Lacey.
