    While I was reading this I was constantly telling myself to hold on that little bit further just keep on going it will pick up but it didn't The whole book felt very naive at least that's how I would describe it; Naive and simple I wanted to like this a lot simply because it was about a real life man Hereward who I had nev

    Sadly this book has a lot of good plots and interesting characters Harold Godwinson Harald Hardarada William Duke of Normandy El Sid and and covers many years worth of history from different countries that the author Stewart Binns really should have slowed the pace down focused on a few key moments and maybe made this one book into a trilogy at leastThe side effect of cramming so much into one set of book covers made

Of thousands have been spent including that of King Harold But England will not be conuered easily the Anglo Saxons will not submit meekly to Norman ruleAlthough his heroic deeds will nearly be lost to legend o It is 1066 and England is about to undergo the most cataclysmic change of history since the arrival of the Roman legions On one side the last Saxon king Harold II On the other side William Duke of Normandy William the Bastard William the Conueror The story is recreated on the Bayeux Tapestry which despite being a pro English piece of propaganda sites in a museum in Normandy Harold would be killed at that battle and England would once again be ruled by those of Norse descent The period of Norman Conuest would see a time of bloody battles but also an immense building programme of castles towns and cities andIn the middle of the two men is a third Hereward the Bourne What Never heard of him Neither had I and I hang my head in shame not just at this gap in my own knowledge but also at his omission from the history books Actually some people doubt his existence but regardless of this his story is no less impressive and if he did exist no less importantThis is the first in a series of novels charting the history of England I believe the final part is about Magna Carta This book is a fictionalised biography of Hereward as he and his armies retreat to the Fens and the Isle of Ely to resist the Norman advance An outlaw in life a proclamation made by Edward the Confessor for killing a Priest in this book the sources say it was for civil and familial disobedience he goes to Wales and then Scotland on various uests and errands He meets Macbeth helps him to train his army and eventually returns home to take up armsThe writing style is easy on the eye it is not a heavy read by any stretch of the imagination and it is an easy book to absorb yourself into But there is a lot of explanation almost too much within the dialogue and the narrative and at times I find myself willing the pages on so the story can move go somewhere I m not a great fan of exposition and here there s just too much but at least it doesn t come in lumps as so many other books that fall into the trap do The narrative also reads like narration at times as though Simon Schama himself is reading it aloudWhen writing historical fiction it is important to get the environment right That is it must feel that you are in the right time and place Binns certainly manages that Though he doesn t go into the same intricate depth as Jean M Auel in her Earth s Children series there is enough there for it to feel satisfyingly medieval The petty politics and power struggles that are going on around the Saxons and their would be Norman conuerors is also satisfyingly handledWilliam the Conueror is satisfyingly depicted a mean and shrewd warlord who loves war as much as he loves his god In contrast I had mixed feelings about Hereward He was almost too much the knight in shining armour travelling the British Isles putting right the wrongs like a medieval Sam BeckettI m sorry to say that the battle when it comes is stodgy and passionless lacking the pace of Cornwell s Saxon Stories and the finesse and technical detail of Sidebottom s Warrior of Rome series I felt let down especially with such a big build upGood book but flawedSee book reviews at my blog The Family ruleAlthough his
