5.0 out of 5 stars Another big hit by a great author, 6 Jun 2008
This review is from: Lords of the Bow: The Epic Story of the Great Conqueror (Conqueror 2) (Hardcover)
When I read Lord of the Bow, during my holiday, I knew that I should take a rest from reading, put the book down and go out site-seeing, but unfortunately, the mistake of taking this book with me has already been committed! I was unable to put it down. I find it very difficult to find writers who can put melees without sounding like they are doctoring the whole situation so that somehow they come out smart strategists in the end. Conn is a very talented strategist and can put details in a way that makes you not want miss a line because you know it all counts when you get to the numerous great fights. This is a really good book and nothing less of the many other books Conn had authored about war. It also gives us men a very good insight into the politics of man and the effects of power on us.
I just hope that 1, Conn would not be as explicit with sexual encounters and 2, that he would write the next book asap!

hardly explicit, surely? rather adds to the earthy realism of the tale, I feel. a rollicking good read anyway

I agree: I think any description of the sexuality in these books as "explicit" is misleading. Those types of passage are few and far between, are brief, and are always in context. The violence is far more graphic, which is of course to be expected in a book of this type.
