What the Critics Say

"Bernard Cornwell is a literary miracle. Year after year, hail, rain, snow, war and political upheavals fail to prevent him from producing the most entertaining and readable historical novels of his generation." (Daily Mail)
"Cornwell's narration is quite masterly and supremely well-researched."(Observer)
"The best battle scenes of any writer I've ever read, past or present. Cornwell really makes history come alive." (George R.R. Martin)

    "One of the Better new Sharpe Stories"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Sharpe's Trafalgar: The Battle of Trafalgar, 21 October 1805 (The Sharpe Series, Book 4) to be better than the print version?

    Always a difficult question however the narattor was very good for this book and conveys the different characters well. His Richard Sharpe may not sound as everyone has imaged but it can be easy to get a preconceived idea of how the character should sound, especially if you were a fan of the TV show.


    What other book might you compare Sharpe's Trafalgar: The Battle of Trafalgar, 21 October 1805 (The Sharpe Series, Book 4) to, and why?

    The book draws obvious comparison to the Hornblotton series of novels although the basic structure of the novel is similar to that of the other sharpe books.


    Which character – as performed by Rupert Farley – was your favourite?

    The Nelson Character, although only a small character in book, was not how I imaged and was more complex and perhaps 'real' than some of the others. Perhaps this is down to some of my own preconceptions of someone who has entered almost mythical status in the UK but it is a testiment to both the writing and the narration of how the character comes across.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The climax of the book is excellent and without giving away any spoilers you can probably guess what this is. The event is described in such detail that it's scale is really well conveyed.


    Any additional comments?

    I quickly downloaded the next book in the series after reading this one.
