I just downloaded the History, so can't comment on the narration yet. Just wanted to warn potential buyers that this is NOT the complete book, but only part two of the complete recording. This download starts with Book 3.

Either Tacitus was a better writer than Josephus or he has been better translated. He has some odd ideas about the Jews - he regards one of their obnoxious customs as “not even killing their later-born children”! However, other “barbarians” are sometimes described as noble or courageous, and he avoids the gossipy accounts of debauchery so beloved by Suetonius. Sadly, the end of the book is lost, which would have told of the end of the Jewish War, Masada, and the Destruction of the Temple.
