"Mortimer's guide to Britain in the late 1600s, while dense with information, mostly avoids dryness or dullness, strongly assisted here by Clark's personable and intelligent reading. Clark's British-accented voice is deep, craggily resonant, and likeable. He takes on the role of the time traveler's amiable companion, conveying the sense of strangeness that a real time-traveler might experience, and lending nuanced reactions to the material: surprise, amusement, sympathy, dismay. He signals the occasional joke by tone and pauses, without overemphasis. His reading is energetic, bringing vitality even to occasional long lists of facts and statistics. Much of the book is highly interesting, but the listener is carried happily through even the drier sections by Clark's energy, spirit, and good cheer. W.M. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
