あらすじ・解説

Learn the unbelievable true history of the great warrior tribes of Mexico. More than 13 centuries of incredible spellbinding history are detailed in this intriguing study of the rulers and warriors of Mexico. Dozens of these charismatic leaders of nations and armies are brought to life by the deep research and entertaining storytelling of Peter Tsouras. Tsouras introduces the reader to the colossal personalities of the period: Smoking Frog, the Mexican Machiavelli, the Poet Warlord, the Lion of Anahuac, and others... all of them warlords who shaped one of the most significant regions in world history, men who influenced the civilization of half a continent. The warlords of Mexico, for all their fascinating lives and momentous acts, have been largely ignored by writers and historians, but here that disappointing record is put right by a range of detailed biographies that entertain as they inform. Students of the area, historians working in American history, and long-term visitors and tourists to the region will gain a much clearer understanding of the background history of these territories and the men who formed and reformed them.

Written in 1996. Narration disrespectful

This is a work that essentially covers the works of Jesuit priests in recording Central Mexican history. The title (as mentioned by so many) is not representative of the book's contents, for any mention of Maya is incidental at most. I am not pleased with the editorial decision of Audible to uses this narrator who had so many pronunciation atrocities. He used a dieresis when none was present, seemingly had no ability to use an accent as indicated, skipped entire syllables, does not understand enough to even pronounce words at an elementary level. I am troubled that this lack of respect to the language and the listener seems to happen so often with Audible only works.

Bad narration

Seems almost robotic needed a Spanish speaking accent to enhance the story wanted to like it but just couldn’t get into it

Beautifully Done!

If you could sum up Warlords of Ancient Mexico in three words, what would they be?

comprehensive, interesting & well-seamed

Who was your favorite character and why?

Tlacaelel; for his energy & unpredictability (doesn't mean I'd ever want to know him)

Which scene was your favorite?

since this is a history book, that's hard to say

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

the Roller Coaster of the Aztec Civilization

Any additional comments?

The writer did a beautiful job of describing the rise & fall of the Aztecs (there was little about the Maya, but then again they are very enigmatic), with many interesting accompanying illustrative stories. The narrator did a great job with those Nahuatl names. I recommend that you keep a name & place companion with you, as the names can get confusing.

why is this not a movie?

or 40 movies? they're a lot of great stuff here.
pronunciation of some of the indigenous words and names are up for debate but on the whole, a lot of time we'll spent.

It's OK- there are much better books on this topic

I listened to this on Audible Plus so it was effectively "free" and it was OK. If you are spending credits or have limited listening time, I would highly recommend "Maya to Aztec: Ancient Mesoamerica Revealed" in the great courses series. It is much better organized, covers interesting topics like the Olmecs, the Mayan Calendar, Mayan astronomy and the Cortez/Montezuma saga is fantastically done (it's good in this book too - that particular story is too fascinating that it ever could not be told poorly)

Game of thrones meets the Americas

Captivating from beginning to end. The last part about Cortes should be made into a movie.

Not as good as I expected

The theme is appealing, and technically it delivers... but I found it rather repetitive and at times hard to follow. I know it has to do with the sources and ancient texts are repetitive, but some editing would be welcome because the story itself is great.

A fantastic introduction to Mesoamerican history.

Would you consider the audio edition of Warlords of Ancient Mexico to be better than the print version?

The audio version helps immensely with pronouncing the names and cities throughout the book although I can imagine that seeing the printed names may help form some familiarity between the myriad of characters quicker. I believe that the print version contains several maps etc. which again would be very helpful.

What did you like best about this story?

It's the history of the rise and fall of indigenous Mesoamerican culture, the whole thing is utterly fascinating.

Have you listened to any of Paul Christy’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I have not. Initially I thought the performance would be an issue but it was anything but.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Audible really needs some new questions of History books.

Any additional comments?

If getting this audible version it would be best to spend some time throughout looking at maps of the region. All the moving’s of each civilisation can get a little disorientating.

Enthralling

Very detailed history of the Tepanec and Mexica (Aztecs). Utterly enthralling and somehow left me feel sympathetic towards a culture that sacrificed hundreds of thousands people to their gods.
