Publisher's Summary

This is a story of the days of chivalry in England and of young Myles Falworth, son of a lord unjustly disgraced for treason, who was forced to make his fortune as best he might in the days when men seemed made of iron. How he entered the service of a powerful lord, rose to knighthood, defeated his father's old enemy in thrilling combat, and at last won the friendship of the king is told against a background of the dangerous times of the 14th century that makes them live again.

    "A great story for younger listeners"

    This is a book about a 15-year old boy who becomes a squire and, eventually, a knight. It was exciting to see him grow and mature. The vocabulary was a bit advanced for the modern teenager. However they can identify with the struggles that the hero goes through with hazing by older boys, secret hideaways with his friends, chaste romance with a young lady who is the daughter of the Earl, who is far above his "station" in life. Throughout the story, the young man behaves honorably and it shows how godly character is rewarded despite great struggles. I would recommend it as a stepping stone for those readers who will go on to more mature stories of knights and ladies.

    "Good story with technical flaws"

    I enjoyed Robert Whitfield’s narration of “Scaramouche” and “Captain Blood” so much that I got this book as well.

    The narration is as good as those others, but the audio quality isn’t. Added to that, I noticed some flaws with the downloaded book. Initially, chapter 16 was missing entirely. I called the problem to the attention of customer service and it seems to be repaired now, but the missing chapter detracted from the enjoyment of the story. As it turned out, that chapter is not central to the plot.

    This is an enjoyable story for anyone older than 15. Children younger than that will probably have trouble with some of the words, but it’s still an easily understood story, with only a few excursions away from the main plot.

    The story’s central character is Miles, a young man studying to be a knight. Honor is a central concept of the story.

    I am waaaaay past childhood and enjoyed this book, but I think it would be more suited for boys in their teens. I don’t think that girls would enjoy it as much boys would, although I should leave that issue open until we get a woman’s opinion.

    In spite of the technical flaws, I rate it at 4 stars.

    "Hard to follow"
    What did you like best about Men of Iron? What did you like least?

    I downloaded this intending to listen to it as I worked from. However, it is hard to follow since it was written in a style more appropriate to the era it is based in.
