5.0 out of 5 stars Tough as they come and the best of a very good series, 14 Oct. 2015
This review is from: Strega (Kindle Edition)
This is I think his best book of the Burke series, and that's saying a lot believe me. Burke is one of the best-fashioned protagonists I'v e ever come across, lots of layers and lots of history and all sadly very realistic and believable. Someone bought me a copy of Flood when it had just come out, I was about 15. At the time I thought it was wierd and way out, though very interesting, fiction. Recently bought and read the whole series on Kindle and recognised these books for what they are- hard, true and unremitting depictions of the wickedness and hypocrisy that laps around the ankles of our society like some kind of raw sewage that we can't be bothered to flush away.
Strega is the best of the lot of them. I'm less convinced by Burke MkII (if you've read the series you will understand) of the later books.
Get hold of these books somehow and read them but don't expect to fall asleep straight after. Thought-provoking, eye-watering and gut-wrenching, yes- but comfortable bedtime lullabies they ain't.

4.0 out of 5 stars Uhtred rampages onward and gets 3.5 stars from me, 8 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In many ways this was a satisfying further tale of the deeds of Uhtred. I found it funnier than some (e.g. The tale of Mus, and yes, Bernard you were ever so clever to choose that name... ) and I think that as ever Mr Cornwell is very good when describing scenes and battles and he keeps this book rolling along nicely. Is it my imagination or is it not very long? The gritty portrayal of dangerous and often short life 1000 years ago is really well done.
Uhtred doesn't seem to age, not really. He might be getting a bit more fixed in his opinions and betraying his age a bit, or that might just be Bernard Cornwell, or me. But he seems to me basically the same as when he first became an adult. That's decades ago now. Also the story of the reconquest of England is beginning to look as if it was more or less done by him, has he ever actually lost a fight? And I wasn't entirely convinced by the way in which he won the last battle although for all I know the author has found a historical example of the same.
Still it is a fun read with lots of excitement and I'm looking forward to the next one. If you have enjoyed the series so far, you will certainly like this book.

Alfred the Good Soldier: His Life and Campaigns
Alfred the Good Soldier: His Life and Campaigns
by John Peddie

5.0 out of 5 stars Very well worth a look!, 28 Sept. 2014
Informative, intelligent and interesting review of the life of Alfred, mainly of the struggle with the Danes 871-878. I bought this when it was first published and really enjoyed it. The style is easy to read and entertaining. I think the authors deductions from sometimes thin evidence are carefully thought out and he explains his reasoning well.

I'm not sure if he didn't update this book with a more recent one with a slightly altered title?

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed, 16 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Hmmm... not very horrible really. Became less gripped as the stories went on unfortunately. And some bits like the accident in the last story need rewriting/rethinking.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent book on attachment- what is it and how does it go wrong?, 11 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A really good summing up and run through of the development of theory around attachment. If you are planning to work with harmed kids or adopt/ foster, I'd most certainly read this first. Makes great sense unlike some famous psychoanalysts I could mention.
