Avis de l'équipe

“If you enjoyed the epic historical fiction drama Scarlet City, you’ll love returning to that world for The Waringham Chronicles - an ambitious six volume series set against an ever changing backdrop of war, plague, revolution and political intrigue. Narrated by the always exceptional Miriam Margolyes and performed by a full cast. You’ll be hooked!” (Mariele, Audible Editor)  

“Miriam Margolyes returns to Audible in spectacular fashion as she takes on six epic adventures, guiding us through the drama of The Waringham Chronicles supported by a fantastic cast who fully embrace these fantastic stories.” (Matthew, Audible Editor)  

Description

Robin has made a powerful ally in the Duke of Lancaster. But he has made powerful enemies too: not only his childhood adversary Mortimer, but the sadistic knight Peter de Gray. Returning to England, he is awarded the fiefdom of Fernbrook in Lancashire, where he meets the beautiful noblewoman Joanna. 

But the wheel of fortune keeps turning and as the years pass Robin and his friends must face trials and tragedies: plague, war and political intrigue are never far away. And when Fernbrook falls into the covetous hands of the irredeemably wicked young Earl of Burton, Robin must confront horrors at home which rival even the bloodshed he has experienced in the ongoing wars against France....

In the second installment of a six-part epic, Medieval Europe is brought to life in a multi-cast drama based on the novels by Rebecca Gable, author of the Scarlet City trilogy.

Featuring: Gareth Armstrong, Tim Bentinck, Will Bishop, Gabriel Clark, Clare Corbett, Raymond Coulthard, Gareth David-Lloyd, Barnaby Edwards, Jonathan Firth, Philip Franks, Raj Ghatak, Helen Goldwyn, Anthony Howell, Joe Jameson, Jacqueline King, Rosalyn Landor, Damian Lynch, Michael Maloney, Miriam Margolyes, Tony Millan, Darin Nagada, Nisha Nayar, George Naylor, Steven Pacey, Nicholas Pegg, Vineeta Rishi, Dan Starkey, Alexander Vlahos, Lizzie Waterworth-Santo, Finty Williams, Sophie Winkleman and Becky Wright.

Great audiobook, narration sometimes childish

I read a few titles of the Waringham series a couple of years ago and never felt like it was a children's book but the voices in this version sometimes take out the punch of the story. Robin is now a seasoned knight who has been to war, had kids, lost a wife.. but he still speaks with a boyish voice and the narrator makes him sound stupid and naive at times (might be the producer's fault, there are many people involved in a piece like this). It would be fantastic if his parts could be rerecorded. It's really a fantastic story please don't try to make it into a children's book. It's not.

WORST break of logic in the middle of the story

WHY does a established and smart character suddenly does the most stupid thing for literally no reason (love also wasn't involved at this point) and with no background in his own life. The author really was too lazy to think of a good story setup at this point! It RUINED the whole character and story for me. It's a shame for the great actors who did a great job on recording this book. Spoiler: I'm referring to the scene when the mob want's to kill Lancaster, everybody rides away but only Robin stays back alone, with his Lancaster Coat of arms on , just to talk to the mob about nothing and then gets nearly killed by for no reason ????

Der beste Mittelalter-Epos aller Zeiten II.

Ermeut: Nach den ersten 2 Durchläufen (Deutsches Hörbuch u. Hörspiel), muss ich sagen - unglaublicherweise - diese Version ist sogar noch besser: A++
