    "Historical fictionn at it's best."

    Sir Arthur Conan Doyle spent so much of his time with Sherlock Holms he only wrote two books in this series (Sir Nigle & The White Company) This is a pity! This book takes you back to the Hundred Years War with characters and places which should add to your understanding of the period and your list of friends you have met in the pages of books. It is told with humor and scholarship and leave you wishing he had done many more.

    "Sir Arthur Conan Doyle can certainly tell a story"

    Simply awesome. Characters, settings, adventures were all wonderfully spun. Very refreshing story of chivalry, the Knights who lived and died by it, and the jaw dropping adventures and battles they took part in. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle knows how to weave a story. Period.

    "Loved this book"

    I am a great fan of Arthur Conan Doyle's Holmes stories, but I was unfamiliar with this book and had never heard of the character. I am also a fan of some of the great writes from the past. They were able to tell stories without being explicit or using boring repetitive obscene, vulgar, or crude language used in most of today's writing. I gave the book a try without knowing any background, and I enjoyed the story very much. Sir Nigel is a wonderful character. The story was a fine combination of emotions and characters. I found it to be a very pleasant listen on a very long commute.

    Story
    "If you like that sort of things..."

    I guess if you like novels of chivalry, errand knights, medieval war pageantry, and all that, it is not a bad book. But I am not a fan and may be not the best of judges. It is however well written, with much richer a language than in the Sherlock Holmes stories. It is at times actually quite poetic.
