The Vikings are as intriguing as one would anticipate, and Naxos makes this audiobook a thrilling educational experience. Here dragons of old are REAL—they are the fiercely decorated Viking ships. Narrator Joe Marsh brings his humor, enthusiasm, and excellent pronunciation to this book. The “wild” men have names, and their bravery is heralded. Their rich history is covered, and their myths and legends are fully explored, making them even more beguiling. Best of all, Marsh sounds like he’s talking solely to the listener. What a great way to learn! Angus has also written The Great Explorers of the World series.
