Epistolary for is boring and confusing. I tried to listen to this book but it was really really slow. Pick something else. Frankenstein is better.
I really, really wanted to read this. I first picked it up in Powells as a paper back, but could not get past the first 100 pages. So I thought I'd try listening to it while I did some work around the house but I couldn't! It's just too boring! Nothing seems to happen and when things do happen, it's still boring. If you think this is going to be a thrilling book full of political intrigue and fantastic battle scenes, you're dead wrong.
Cornwell is probably one of the best at what he does. This novel is non-stop fun. Once you get into this genre it becomes difficult to continue talking to your friends about how great George RR Martin is.
I listened to this on a long road trip and it made the miles fly by pretty smoothly. I have the second book on my kindle and I'm sure I'll get around to reading it. I like the story but I'd like a book that was more based on reality. Robin Hood is too much of a ghost to really write about.
