5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it!, 30 Aug 2007
This review is from: Dark Fire (The Shardlake Series) (Paperback)
Having had a fascination for the Tudor period for some time, I found this to be an interesting and entirely captivating read. It brings to life the streets of London circa 1540 in a way that is entirely believable. Sansom brings to life characters of this period who are known in history only through dry accountings. His main character, Mather Shardlake, is not your typical hero. For one thing he is a hunchback, and is treated scathingly by many people, and secondly he is a lawyer. However, you find it very easy to bond with him and it is nice to see a lead character who is different from the norm.

I would most definitely recommend this book. Whilst the mysteries themselves are not all that hard to work out for yourself, it is more the fact that this book is different to most modern day crime novels that make this such an alluring read.
