4.0 out of 5 stars Great Historical Read 19 Dec 2011
By Drew R. Maerz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I did not know much about Charlemange when I saw this for the Kindle. Being a fan of Arthurian books and Thomas Bulfinch, I decided to take the chance on this text. I was not disappointed. This is a relatively easy read and is filled with wonderful stories and tales. For a fan of European lore, I would recommend this book.
2.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic tales 8 July 2014
By david Robinson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Bulfinch retells some of the stories of knights errant in the time of Charlemagne. the title is misleading - Charlemagne plays a very small part in most of the tales, does not appear at all in many and is never the central character. the stories are fantastical in the extreme, full of knights-errant whose first thought is always to fight every knight they meet, maidens in distress and enchanters. These are precisely the sort of stories that Cervantes parodies in Don Quixote - which is the only reason I read the book, which tends to get repetitive after a while.

The present book is one of three sections of a larger book by Bulfinch and appended here is an index to the whole original, so voluminous as to take up a quarter of this book.
3.0 out of 5 stars Too much legends, not enough history 1 Nov 2013
By Joe Scientist - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The title does say LEGENDS of Charlemagne but I would have preferred a lot more actual history mixed in with the legends.
3.0 out of 5 stars Ok for a reference 26 Sep 2013
By Jeanne Baptiste - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I wide collection of legends, not easy to read but very extensive, many of the legends are covered.

I don't advice to read the book as a novel, it is better to keep the book to read it from time to time one legend at a time, each legend is around 10 pages and normally there is no sequence between one legend and the next.
