It rates right up at the top. It has become a favourite.
Apart from the main character Fitz I think Chade is my favourite because he is the one that needs the most unraveling. He is the Master Assassin the one character who has the most to unravel,.
I enjoy this performance. The reading is very crisp and clear. I hate it when it is time to stop. Paul Boehmer really does bring the characters alive and takes you right into the story.
The moment when Fitz stabs King Shrewd's knife into Chade's hearth Defiantly.
Like I said this book has become a firm favourite, I've read it over and over. I love the court intrigue. The fast pace as the story unfolds.
Yes. I already have done so.
It is a classic fish out of water, step back in time tale. What you do if you could step back into time?
Well I did like Clarence but I also enjoyed the portrayal of "Sandy".
Yes and I almost did. It was only 2 sittings anyhow.
I though Twain was making some big statements against Monarchy and Slavery. I dare say this may have been the motivation for the story. Twain is a great story teller. I do make one comment though that in reading it today not only is the language of Arthur's day antiquated, as Twain points out but the language of Twain's day is similarly so. This kinda is part of the attraction to the tale.
