The Last Kingdom

Unabridged / Go to Abridged Audiobook

Written By: Bernard Cornwell

Narrated By: Jonathan Keeble

Publisher: HarperAudio

Date: December 2014

Duration: 13 hours 29 minutes


The first installment of Bernard Cornwell’s New York Times bestselling series chronicling the epic saga of the making of England, “like Game of Thrones, but real” (The Observer, London)—the basis for The Last Kingdom, the hit Netflix series.

In the middle years of the ninth century, the fierce Danes stormed onto British soil, hungry for spoils and conquest. Kingdom after kingdom fell to the ruthless invaders until but one realm remained. And suddenly the fate of all England—and the course of history—depended upon one man, one king.

From New York Times bestselling storyteller Bernard Cornwell comes a rousing epic adventure of courage, treachery, duty, devotion, majesty, love, and battle as seen through the eyes of a young warrior who straddled two worlds.

    First book in another outstanding series by Bernard Cornwell. As always, the battle scenes are in depth and engaging. Great story that kept me entertained from beginning to end. Only downside is that it has a cliff hanger ending - I can hardly wait to get the sequel!

    This was a great story and the narrator did a fantastic job capturing the personality of the characters. My only issue was that the story did not seem to end on the last CD. Maybe there is a sequal to follow?

    I loved this book. The character development, the plot, the way you can visualize what’s going on was amazing. The narration was wonderful. I normally don’t like narrators because they are kind of boring or they read too fast or too slow, but he did an amazing job. I’ve already started the second book.

    I rarely love a book enough to write a review, but wow, where do I start? Meticulous historical research. Brilliant storytelling. Excellent character development. I'm listening to the recorded version and the narrator, Jonathan Keeble, is beyond awesome. Five stars for this title, hands down. I've already downloaded the second book in the series and I will probably be obsessively "reading" Bernard Cornwell for months.

    One of the best narrators I've ever listened to, narrating one of the best historical fiction books ever, by one of the greatest authors. So yeah. I enjoyed it :)

  • Mark Nicholson

    Very much enjoyed the story and the narrator was very good with with the many accents. Looking forward to continuing the series.

    I can't get enough of Bernard Cornwell. The story is bloody and the main character is not someone I would want living next door, but the detail is so precise and descriptive I felt like I was there. I'm only sorry that I could only get the abridged version.

  • Christopher Weakley

    While I loved the book, it seems that there is a disc missing. I cant believe that the story would end in the middle of a sentence. As always, Bernard Cornwell invokes with great realism the feeling of what it must have been like to be in the middle of combat in ancient times. His characters are human and personable. An excellent listen.
