Customer Review

on 31 December 2013
Good read and well researched. Some ommissions that worried me, really wshy were facts changed? Take the first one I came accross as example, i.e. The Scotch didn't just 'hand him over to the English Parliament' p29 Abacus. They sold Charles, for a lot more than the proverbial thirty pieces of silver, but the point is made. Then having got the money for Charles, they still wanted to have him support and back their Presbyterianism on England. Certainly a win win for the Scotch! However, am I being picky? I suppose I may, but a very good book and a sobering thought of the personality of Charles the Second. Charles always the scheming politician and habitual liar, was in his element as King, he played the easy going monarch, whilst whoring amongst the ladies of the court and stage. Yet have the perspicacious wit along with the viciosness to betray his friends and lovers, whilst keeping those he needed on board throughout his rotten reign. What chance did his enemies have? The men who had fought with conviction and courage against his father were condemned, those that signed the deah warrent were hunted down for brutal execution by the vicious unforgiving monarch. This is very well exempled in the book, giving a dignity to the hunted, such as Harrison and to their plight. Yes a good read I would say go and buy it but read it carefully!
