Harlequin - Excellent Historical FIction

Overall
5 out of 5 stars

Great Listen, excellent narration by Andrew Cullum. I had read Edward the Black Prince back in the day and was into 14th century Anglo-Franco affairs, when my Grandmother recommended this book. I was enthralled. Great story cleverly woven around historical events at the time, the start of the 100 years war(s). English long bow archers constantly winning the day, French Noble Knights being felled in droves by basically well trained English peasants. This actually happened, changing the way that war was to be waged. It is a trilogy, and although I thought the first book was by far the best, I plan on Audible-ing the other two.

A blast from the past I had read when I was a teen. So engaging. The bad guys are really bad, and so few good guys. It was a great stroll down memory lane with classic lines like Fushing Feef, Bad Smells Jackie, It's Axiomatic, A Manner O' Things Will Be Well, and more. It makes you wonder, which is a hall mark of any great novel, about the territories, worlds within worlds, the multiverse as it has been come to be known. I could not put it down when I was a youngling, and I tore through it voraciously in the Audiobook format. I love it, and always will.
