4.0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable read, 1 Feb. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Needle in the Blood (Paperback)
I was rather worried by the length of this book but, as with Michel Faber's Crimson Petal and the White, there was no problem with its length. I picked it up with great anticipation of the unravelling story and there was certainly a strong one. The historical content is very enlivened with the excellent descriptive passages of twelfth century life. I've got very impatient to see The Bayeux Tapestry, and finding out more about the period in history. If I have one small criticism is that some of the significant turning points in the book were over and done with in a sentence. If you were tired, and failed to read every word, you might have missed something very important. Emotional content was, for me, very subtle, and my interest in Odo and Gytha never actually filled me with page turning excitement. I just accepted everything that happened as a 'fact'. In the last pages of the book something happened (I won't hint what it was) that really disappointed me. Enought to say that it involved Freya and Fulk. Obviously it was done for a reason by the author, but it seemed a bit at odds with unfolding drama.
