The Whale Road (The Oathsworn Series, Book 1) by Robert Low
While I found this book was somewhat enjoyable, I have no intentions of reading the rest of the series. It was far from a page turner, and I actually think itís been a long time since I took this long to finish a book. That doesnít mean that I wasnít entertained, and the concept of a good olí treasure hunt in Viking times was at least new to me.
A few times during the read, I found it a bit hard to understand what the author was actually trying to express. That might be because English is not my first language, but it happened more often than I usually experience. Another point of critique is that there are a few anachronistic errors throughout the book. Like when the narrator… Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit repetitive, 7 Dec 2013
As much as I love the series, I can't help but feel that "The Pagan Lord" is too much of what we have read 6 times before already. Danes attack, Uhtred hates priests and saves the day; you've read it before.

Furthermore, the way Cornwell often "sums up" his characters when we have not heard about them for a few chapters, struck me as a bit annoying this time.

Ross Kemp - The Afghanistan Box Set [DVD] <b>DVD</b> ~ Ross Kemp

This series is just incredible. The footage is amazingly up close and personal and is probably as close to actual war as most people will want to get. Ross Kemp comes across as incredibly sincere and honest. Unlike many other documentary film makers, Ross Kemp really gets personally involved with the individual soldiers and he seems to care a lot about them.
At a few instances in the series, it is also clear that Kemp tries his best to help the soldiers out when in the field.
In closing, the intense footage could have been achieved be other film crews, but it's the host that really makes this series something special.
