So much fun I bought it twice!
on 28 May 2017
I have to concur with the vast majority of reviewers. This series is an excellent romp through the Middle Ages. I liked the paperback version of these books so much that I also bought the Kindle version; that's how much I enjoyed them! Mr Cornwell conjures up a vivid picture of Medieval Europe that makes for a great way to pass the time whether in sickness or in health.
Yes, there are moments when you feel as though Richard Sharpe were about to shoulder a longbow alongside Thomas of Hookton, but the pacey writing kept me interested long enough to ensure that I then read further novels and historical non-fiction accounts of the same period. If for nothing else, for his ability to get me re-acquainted with my love of history and historical literature, I thank Mr Cornwell, and many of you will too.
