5.0 out of 5 stars Game of Thrones redefines storytelling, 1 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Game of Thrones redefines storytelling. No character no matter how prominent can escape the fear of being killed off by the writers. It makes for gripping drama.

Slick seemingly realistic spies - the TV adaptation of a fairly heavy and slow-burning chase. If you do not watch this you'll never really understand The Cold War

1.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't do his research, 27 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an author who could not be bothered to do his research. A few pages in and the characters are getting worried about legitimacy - as if the real Anglo-Saxons were bothered about such things. Neither did the real Anglo-Saxons live in ex-Roman villas - they were spooked by such things. I read historical novels to experience a different culture, a different mindset, a different outlook. This, like many historical novels, is just soap opera with swords.

1.0 out of 5 stars Do your research, 27 Feb. 2015

I gave up when they started boxing a few pages in. The point of reading historical novels is the experience of a different world, a different culture, a different mindset. This is none of those things.

4.0 out of 5 stars conclusion and first two as well of Pournelle's Janissaries series, 11 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ok. An entertaining read. Part of a series modelled on the Ottoman empire janissaries, or new soldiers. I could wish Pournelle had researched them.

I would have given 5 except for the irritating capitals. Like a book by Yoda written it. Is.

Good stuff. Showell Styles is not much read these days but this particular series is closer to reasonable historical fiction.
