The Way of Wyrd (Kindle edition),
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Way of Wyrd (Kindle Edition)
I recently purchased, downloaded and read this book on my Kindle. I was a little apprehensive about reading it as I am a Christian and I could see that this book was going to clash with my own personal beliefs seeing as it is about Paganism and sorcery. Saying that though, some of my Christian friends are dismayed that I read (and enjoyed) the Harry Potter books. :-)
The Way of Wyrd (pronounced "Wierd", not "Word" as I tended to say it >_< )is set in, or around, the year 674, where a young novice monk is sent by his monastery to investigate a pagan area of the country and report back in order to allow a mission to be made in which to convert the pagans to Christianity. The novice monk meets a sorcerer who teaches him about the Wyrd, a pagan "religion". The book, though fictional, is based on real life back then and is very interesting.
The story is a gripping read and one I thoroughly enjoyed even though it went against my own personal beliefs. I am glad I didn't just blindly refuse to read such literature, and considered it an enriching experience. I thought the book was marvellously well written and really did have me hooked until the last page. I would have no proplem in recommending this to my Christian friends.
Finally, a word on the presentation on the Kindle; As many Kindle owners have experienced, myself included, many publishers it seems just convert a book (very poorly in my opinion) to Kindle format without even bothering to proof-read it prior to releasing it. I am please to say, however, that this is not the case for this e-Book. Vary well formatted, no obvious typos and vary easy to read.
