    Amazing!

    I have known, respected and even revered China as an incredibly ancient and storied people for a long time and this book has only increased my awe, fascination and appreciation for the country and its resilient people.

    Might Be Okay For Children...Maybe

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Was this meant for grade school children? If so, I guess it might be okay. But I was hoping for something geared toward intelligent adults.

    Would you ever listen to anything by Adam Brown again?

    I honestly don't know. I couldn't get past the first ten minutes.

    Would you be willing to try another one of Sarah Moore’s performances?

    No. Not at all.

    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    This was definitely not the book I was hoping for. It's stylistically elementary, and the narration sounds more like it belongs in a first-grade classroom than in a serious, engaged book about Asian history. Listening to it is like sitting in one of those horrible history classes back in grade school. Ick.

    Needs a new narrator

    The concept of the book sounds great and you can tell the author did plenty of research.
    Unfortunately, the narrator ruins it. It seems the narrator tries to make up for the “textbook” like writing by over emPHAsizing certain words that don’t need it. In fact, it detracts from the book and is downright confusing.
    I listened to it on 1.3x speed just to get through the book faster. What a shame.

    Terrible narration

    Couldn’t get past first 10 minutes. Sounds like a robot. Just sounded like a primer for an exam study. Returned it.

    almost perfect

    I found a few errors in this book but it doesn't affect the information that author is really trying to deliver. I was educated and I enjoyed at the same time. Happy. :)

    Learning about East Asia

    This kind of an educational book. I did have some questions about the kind of government China had before. This book just answered my questions.
