2.0 out of 5 stars Not my favourite, 26 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The King's Hounds (The King's Hounds series) (Kindle Edition)
I liked the idea of reading an historic fiction story from this period. The opening chapters seemed quite interesting so I read on, but became progressively more disappointed as I did. The attention to narrative detail disappeared, the feeling of events taking place during the early medieval period was lost, apart from the glaringly obvious, the dialogue descended into openly modern Amricanisms ( the little guy, sure, etc) and the plot was very confused. I don't expect to guess the answer in a who dun it early on, but I like a sense of where we were headed, and this plot seemed too confused. I'm surprised the protagonists even reached a conclusion. There was too much repetition of particular phrases, too much clumsy and cliched sexual attitude on behalf of one of the protagonists. I ended up with sympathy for no-one and no particular interest in the story. Could not recommend to anyone. I' ve given two stars because of the beginning, but that's the only reason for more than 1 star.

Thanks for review - highlights a couple of my own pet-hates. I won't bother with this one.
