    Didn t quite pan out as I expected I read the date involved thought excellent a story about a Saxon Huscarl who goes against them Normans at the Battle of Hastings What we get though is a different recount of the good guys and the bad guys amongst the Saxon court Thegns as Harold Godwinson is portrayed as very different to how my history was taught to me, his brother Tostig too had a dif

    This is a fictionalized account of Hereward the Wake, dubbed the last Englishman and one of the local leaders who openly resisted the Norman invasion of England in the 11th century Normally this time period is a page turner for me, but maybe it was just unfortunate that I read this book when I was sick with the flu and my mind wasn t on a full on reading mood these past weeks It also didn t h

    Okay I finished it, but this book did not blow me away.Here s the plot of the story Two wrongly accused men, one moral and one amoral, develop a friendship as they attempt to clear their names during the period leading up to and immediately following the Norman Invasion.It took my 150 page to realize what this book was about Until that point, the book was a series of violent escapes during which v

    Superb Nothing less.Hereward gripped me and held me at sword point from page one That was my attempt at writing something they might want to use on a future Hereward book jacket.I can t remember being so impressed by a historical novel for a long, long time It really is that good.Set in an interesting and for me, at least under discovered period the years just before and just after the Norman invasion

    This is a good story told in a poorly constructed novel I have so many problems with it and yet I read it through to the end, even though it took two weeks, so I m giving it three stars.My first issue is Hereward himself It s clear the author adores him as a historical figure, but that s a lot of the problem He s almost never referred to as anything other than warrior And we are shown time and again that he

    Based on the character of Hereward the Wake and largely following the line of the Gesta Herewardi, I enjoyed the book pretty much, until I came to the part where Hereward goes to Flanders Wilde got the description of the landscape and the coast of Northern France, Flanders, the Zealand Isles, especially Walcheren where I used to live and the Dutch Coast and Scaldis estuary all wrong There are no pebble beaches,

    I almost gave up reading this novel of Hereward, the English leader of the resistance to William the Conqueror, since the first part was so confusing After he meets the monk and they travel together, I wondered what each of them had done to deserve outlawry also what the plot and the conspiracy were Nothing made sense but all fell together finally and I m glad I did persist and finish The novel tells of Hereward s wa

    I would initially be a little hesitant to freely give a book five stars but this is the first book I ve read in a long time that hooked me right from the start.I know it s probably because I m a big fan of Bernard Cornwell, especially the saga centred on Uhtred Of Bebbanburg, but there are echoes of such great storytelling here Hereward, toldin the third person, is avisceral, bloodthirsty and angry story than that of Uhtr

    Obviously the first in a planned series of novels on Hereward the Wake in this context, the Wake means wary or watchful , who was a real Saxon who lead the resistance against the Norman invaders of England in William the Conquerors time.While largely forgotten by history, many of Herewards exploits have later been subsumed into the many legends of Robin Hood it is easy to see the parallels between the two characters and, as su

    It s all grr arg stab kill Hereward is like aviolent Robin Hood without the merry men, but he has almost got a friar Tuck Not a bad tale but I won t be rushing straight into the next one.
