3.0 von 5 Sternen All hail Saint Eleanor of Aquitaine... 18. Oktober 1998
Von Ein Kunde
All the things I found faulty about Ms. Penman's writing, which disappeared mysteriously in the Wales Trilogy (read it!!!), have been resurected in full force for this latest novel, unfortunately. While Ms. Penman's research and understanding of the time in which she writes are incredible, she has this annoying tendancy to get involved in TOO many characters. She should just stick to a handful of the most important and tell the story from their eyes alone. Instead, we get the opinions of every clergyman, servingwoman, alehouse companion, whore, and knight in midieval England and Normandy, which really distracts the reader from the concerns of the main characters. Still, Ms. Penman must be commended for bringing such a distant time to life and for bringing to light the life and character of Maude, a strong, fascinating woman unfortunately ignored by history textbooks. About the little blurb above... Ms. Penman also has an amusing tendancy to deify Eleanor of Aquitaine. Nothing wrong with that, however; I do it, too. I should say the book really picks up once young Eleanor hits the scene. I love the way she and Henry II meet for the first time...like Bonnie meeting Clyde...awesome! I think Ms. Penman portrays Eleanor the way we all picture her, and despite my disappointment with the book, if Ms. Penman choses to write further about Eleanor's and Henry's exploits, I shall read them gladly.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Tedious at best 22. November 1998
Von Ein Kunde
The author is to be commended on the amount of research she must have done for this book. However, she makes a fascinating story extremely dull and tedious. The only realistic character was Ranulf and he was totally fictitious! If the subject matter itself hadn't been of prior interest to me, I'd never have gotten through this book.

Von Ein Kunde
I am becoming an avid reader. My friends tell me they have seen me stop in the middle of a busy street to read an old comic from a bubble gum wrapper that has been left on the side walk. It's all a lie of course. I have never done that, at least not yet! I had never heard of Sharon Kay Penman until I read this book. I am a great lover of middle ages history so the subject matter interested me. The book is set in Europe mostly England after the death of Henry the First. Everybody and his mother, wife and granny are after the throne. Henry's original heir drowned in the white ship accident (it's a long story, it's a long book) Penmen makes Maude and Stephen (they are the ones fighting over the throne) real living beings, she makes you want to run out and read some of your old dusty history books. She makes history real. The charactorzations are believeable. There is no good or bad guy. I really recomend this book, it's a great; if bloodly story of power in the 10th and 11th centeries. I wouldn't tell who wins the war. I cannot wait for the next Sharon Kay Penmen book

5.0 von 5 Sternen The best medieval novel ever 22. November 2001
Sharon Penman writes without doubt the best medieval novels, and this is her best. It beats such classics as "Pillars of the Earth", "The Physician" or "The Name of the Rose", and these are all brilliant books.
Sharon Penman writes about the life at medieval courts as if she had been there. It is obvious that she has done her homework on the historical facts. The characters have real depth, and she is careful to portrait all the main opponents in a fair way.
The book is very readable, so the size is a bonus, not an onus. Penman can write equally well about raging battles, politics, weddings, childbirth, death or just about a simple medieval breakfast. It is gripping and has some really touching romantic moments - I find myself reading some of these again and again!

4.0 von 5 Sternen I'll admit it.... 15. Juli 2000
I'm an Anglophile. I have a passion for British History. I picked this book up 6 months ago because it looked interesting and it is about a period of history that I am fascinated with. However, it sat on my shelf until last week, when I finally read it. I was immediately intrigued. The characters were well fleshed out and even the observers became important to me (at times I cared a little bit more about what happened to Ranulf than I did about what happened to Henry). There are attitudes and beliefs that are integral to the time period that she brings out in the story to make it even more realistic. I do agree with another reviewer though...it is hard to keep track of who is earl of what and whose side he is on. But overall, she makes the main characters so real that you are affected by what happens to them. Her writing also makes me actually able to visualize the setting. I think the book is extremely well written, and I can't wait until the next one in the series comes out.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Too many characters 1. Oktober 1999
Von Ein Kunde
I have read other works by SKP, and I must say that her books are just phenomenal. I loved "The Reckoning" and "Falls the Shadows".This book however starts out with a dramatic beguining, and a fine introduction of the main characters; but then, just around chapter 8 or 9, there is a number of earls, counts, barons, battles and sieges and it continues on and on for the entire 746 pages making this story a very confusing one indeed. Sometimes these characters are addressed by their titles only, so if you don't remember who was the "Earl of This" or the "Count of That", you really loose track of this novel, not to mention the numerous deflections and betrayals related in this voluminous book. Just in case you got frustrated reading this book, there is another book "The Fatal Crown" by Ellen Jones and is about the same story, Empress Maud and King Stephen but written in a much clearer style.
