2.0 out of 5 stars Lionheart Lite, 15 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lionheart (Kindle Edition)
I should have read the synopsis and not bothered - somewhere it says for adults `and teenagers' so I should have known it would be over glamorised and sanitised. I see that all the other reviews so far are 5* but I'm sorry this is Lionheart lite - every male character is a great fighter and chivalrous and every woman is attractive in some way and promiscuous. On that point The Lionheart beds just about every girl he meets (whereas historically he was well known as `a friend of Dorothy') All a bit too `Boys Own' (no pun intended). He uses some fable to link the, historically well researched, waypoints in Richards's life to link it all together and for me I was just glad to finish it - again sorry to you 5*ers!

I have yet to read this, but it's on my TBR. Just a note to say that the 'friend of Dorothy' was a trendy post WW2 historical misconception based on incorrectly interpreting the sources in terms of medieval mindset and has now been debunked by the latest generation of historians.

Agreed, though I did not know the exact details I knew that historians are now questioning the assertion Richard was gay, and there is no real evidence for this.

Thanks for the review however, I saw this on a swap site and was interested, but certainly not my cup of tea with all those 'extra-curricular activities'.
