This review is from: Act of Will (Kindle Edition)
The prologue told me that this was some sort of cover for a badly pitched fantasy story. I made a start and thought it got off well, but Will was too much of a smart-arse for my liking. I persevered as it was our Book Club choice. It was supposed to be pitched around the time of Shakespeare but I accepted the premise of it being 'translated' into a modern idiom. However, the author had not a trace of knowledge of the times. Lager? Coal wagons? I think not. It was a hoot of a travesty of an adventure story all the way through. Steer clear of this self-indulgent claptrap. And don't even think of getting hooked on this 'knightly valour' hogwash.

What ARE you talking about??? 1. It's a fantasy world, so the idea that I have no knowledge of "the times" is absurd. 2. Both lager and coal were common in the early modern period which is the INSPIRATION for the world of the story.

Touchy. It still lacks much literary merit.

Whether you like the book or not is your privilege. But you show your own crass ignorance with the comment about the period - the author does teach Shakespeare do you?
