This book is every bit as good as Pillars of the Earth. Don't be scared off by the length of the book, the 40+ hours will fly by leaving you wanting more! The book is a little racy at times so maybe not the best for children under 15, but a must read for everyone else!
This book was fantastic. Where is the rest of the series? Come on Audible!
I feel bad giving this book 3 stars because the message is fantastic and everyone should read it. I thought the story dragged out a bit, and I found myself loosing interest about halfway though. I did manage to finish the story but I was a bit of a struggle.
For me the first two thirds of the book was a little slow. The last third, however, was classic Cornwell and the battle details and descriptions were terrific. The ending more then makes up for the slow start.
I was worried that this was going to be a "chick book," especially since most of the reviews I read were from women. This book does have a love story in it, but it's definitely not just for women, it's a very good story. I could have done with less of the old man, but over all I really enjoyed it. I highly recommend it.
Both the author and reader are terrific. Make sure you read all three of the series books in order. As good as this one is, they just keep getting better from here.
This book does a great job presenting the facts, but it's more of detailed listing of actions rather then an description of the experience. It depends on what you're looking for. If you want the black and white facts this book is for you. If you're looking for an adventure novel you'll be disappointed.
This was my first book by the author. It was a good book but not great. If you like this type of book, I highly recommend the author Vince Flynn. He writes the same type of story but I enjoy them much more.
One of the best books I've listned to on Audible. Highly recomended.
This was my first book of the Sharpe series, and I enjoyed it very much. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the books in this series. The story was very exciting and kept me extremely interested all the way through. I highly recommend this one.
