William Mingin
AudioFile, May 2014

Gibbon’s monumental history of the later Roman Empire and its fall is given a spirited treatment by David Timson, who narrates with expressiveness, brisk pacing, and intonation and modulation sensitive to the sense of the text. He fully uses the rare opportunities for voice characterization or acting—in the reading of letters, for instance—but without overdoing, keeping the expression appropriate for a serious history…overall, he provides a fine reading of this massive and difficult work. © 2014 AudioFile Read complete review
