I love historical fiction, but found this book a little far fetched. I thought the narration was flat but intend to give it another listen. I found my mind wandering a lot while listening.
I had a difficult time getting into this book but by chapter 4 I was looking forward to the rest of the book. I felt this book was a little strangely graphic, almost horror story style at times, different that many other books of this time period. I did enjoy the narrator and plan to give the next book a listen.
I hope there will be more by books in this series. I do love these stories. Cornwell is a great weaver of tales
I was sad to be done with this series. i totally enjoyed the narrator. I would like to read more of Thomas of Hookton tales
I really enjoy the story if Thomas of Hookton. far from perfect but awesome.
Again, the same performer with several mispronunciations and irritating tone. I am not usually critical of performers but this person just did not do his homework. If he was reading the next volume, I would be stopping here. The story is generally good though I felt it was disconnected at times, and again the historical inaccuracies were bothersome.
If you can overlook the historical inaccuracies, you will enjoy this story. I absolutely did not enjoy this performance. Too many mispronunciations and the general tone of the performance was irritating to me. I am hard pressed to listen to the next book as it is the same performer.
I loved this book and went on to read the entire series. I highly recommend any of Bernard Cornwell's books. He is able to wind intricate tales and employ fabulous narrative. I spent many nights thinking "just 15 more minutes" till the middle of the night!
I loved this series and was sorry to be done with it. I look forward to the next book in the series.
Continuing the Raven Saga, the author again wound a believable tale of the plundering Norsemen.
I really enjoyed this book which gives an earnest account of how brutal life was at that time. The author was able to draw me in and keep me on the edge of my seat waiting for the next page.
