I was really into it after a couple of episodes, Debbie too. We paused a few weeks to try to encourage Alex to join us and he was hooked within two episodes as well so we binge watched four seasons (anywhere from 1-3 episodes a night) and finished it up recently - it is superb and I highly recommend it.
Season 5 was put on hold because of Covid-19 and so with this new lull in our schedule, Debbie and I started listening to the series on Audible and a Public Library app - I have always loved audio-books - I did, “War and Peace” during long commutes to work, “All the Pretty Horses,” on lunch breaks and my all-time favorite is the Harry Potter series where narrator, Jim Dale gives the movies a run for their money with his excellent range of voices and enthusiasm - check it out if you haven’t heard it before, you will enjoy it.
Bernard Cornwall has written eleven books to-date within the, “Saxon Stories” series of which, the Last Kingdom series is based - there are several voice actors/narrators, some better than others but if you’re looking for some passive entertainment - I like to listen while I’m gardening - give it a whirl! If you’ve never done Audible before, let me know and I can give a token to listen for free. I listened to, “Call of the Wild,” prior to starting the, “Saxon Stories,” which was also great!
In the end, I want to leave this world slightly richer than when I entered it; some days this is more daunting than others but as I scale my personal summits and the passage of time, I know that I will have failed if anyone can look to me and say that I left anything on the table and didn’t live life to its absolute fullest.
