It was an accident, really, that I came to own the book. We were in a tiny bookstore across from Caernarfon Castle when I found the thick and tempting volume. Having exhausted my reading material during the trip, I bought it, and tucked it away for the long flight home. Once started, there was no way to put it down...and I greedily read page after page. It sounds trite to say I was transported, and that Penman makes the characters come alive. In fact, she unleashed a hunger to learn I thought I had lost, and I went in search of Richard...through historical perspective and modern day essays. Finally, last year at Middleham castle, we saw a much loved and dog eared copy of Sunne by the cash register. I pointed to it and said, "That is why we are here..." The guide wasn't surprised; in fact she told us just how many Americans say the same thing. I came away from Richard's home with haunting photos and a real treasure...the guide gave me a book plate autographed by Penman during one of her visits to the castle. I missed the book the moment I finished reading it, but was cheered by the author's wonderful Welsh trilogy awaiting me on the shelf...

5.0 von 5 Sternen Plantagenet Tragedy 23. Februar 2008
Autumn 1459. A seven year-old boy gets lost in the forest. His easy-going eldest brother has had better things to do than watch over him, that is to say seducing a pretty servant girl. After a prolonged search the lad is found, having bravely fought his fear, and despite being afraid of punishment he doesn't even think of informing against his sibling. A fiercely loyal and earnest boy, he is the youngest of his family, small, dark and intense and very different from his three tall and fair brothers. He is Richard Plantagenet, who, as King Richard III, will go down in history as the epitome of evil.

The reader wonders what happened to turn this earnest child into a murderous usurper. Murderer he wasn't, claims Sharon Penman. Believable and compelling, the story of the four sons of Richard, Duke of York unfolds with all the relentlessness and inescapability of a Greek tragedy.

"The Sunne in Splendour" is a magnificent book. Intimate family scenes alternate with bloody battles, scenarios of betrayal and murder are followed by tender love scenes. A host of unforgettable characters populates it. There is the lovable Edmund, the first of the four Plantagenet princes to die; proud foolish Warwick and his tragic brother John Neville; the icily beautiful Elizabeth Woodville, Edward's queen; Bishop Morton, the snake in the grass; sweet-natured Elizabeth of York and Richard's dignified mother Cecily. All of them are complex, and stay with the reader for a long time.

Ms. Penman does not make the mistake to present Richard. Although far from being the monster More and Shakespeare described, her Richard is shown partly responsible for his nephews' fate.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fantastisch Detailliert 11. Juni 2006
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Über Richard III weiss man meist nur, was Shakespeare geschrieben hat, deshalb ist diese Version so erfrischend anders. Sehr ausführlich gehalten, mit grosser Liebe zum Detail und hervorragender Recherche zeigt uns die Autorin hier ein umwerfendes Zeitbild. Sehr lesenswert.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Best Historical Fiction 15. Juni 2000
Penman is the greatest historical fiction author I have ever read and I believe that this is her best book. She does a great job of presenting an alternate viewpoint to the story of Richard III. I find it to be very admirable that Penman is able to include so much detail in her books without becoming pedantic and dull. Her stories are full of action and intrigue and are in no danger of becoming the dry histories that are so cocmmon in her genre.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Penman turns Richard III into a hero 15. Februar 2000
Von Ein Kunde
About a hundred pages into this book, I found myself rather liking the young Richard. I wondered, "How in the heck can this be the same boy who will grow up to murder his own nephews?" Penman seemed to be tackling a very difficult dilemma: how to make a sympathetic character out of so dastardly a villain. Well, she certainly pulled it off! By the end of the book, and after reading the author's notes, I was seeing King Richard's history in a different light. I am learning more and more about how a historian's biases and motives can color their commentary. Could it be that Richard III is, at least partially, the victim of bad press? Penman's novel has made me realize that historical events may be examined from many different angles.

5.0 von 5 Sternen One of the most amazing books you will ever read 3. Juni 2007
Von Amelrode
Before I read this book I never touched historic novels but prefered the proper biographies. To be honest I just bought because I could not find anything decent. But how ignorant I was!

This book is totally absorbing and absolutely amazing. It opened a whole new genre for me. Recently I re-read it and I still got hooked. Since I had read this book for the first time I bought all books by S.K. Penman and I have never ever regretted a single second spend over her books.

She really deserses to be called the "author of splendour". Her talent is unique and absolutely outstanding.

5 stars are not enough. So lets at least say it with the words of the Eurovision Song Contest: 12 points!!!
