I thoroughly enjoyed these audiobooks! If there is a flaw it is that I wanted to hear more. The subject is presented in a manner making it easy to follow the time line of events with historical details of the lives of those involved that make it live. Professor Robinson has a wonderful style and a clear and pleasant voice.
An excellent, informative and entertaining series.
