Medieval Anglophilia at its Very Best!

Weir does it again for the Anglophile with a staunch medieval addiction. Oh, the costumes and jangling of chain mail, the galloping politics, the ferocious women, the handsome war lords, the wanna-be kings, the intrigue, the scandals, the murders, the skulking and lurk...
Weir does it again for the Anglophile with a staunch medieval addiction. Oh, the costumes and jangling of chain mail, the galloping politics, the ferocious women, the handsome war lords, the wanna-be kings, the intrigue, the scandals, the murders, the skulking and lurking, the battles and righteous causes, the not-so-righteous causes, the marching to and fro and hither and yon, the barring of gates and the storming of gates, the scurrying across the border or the sailing across the channel in storm fraught swelling seas, the back room deals and the back room weasels. "To Arms, To Arms" with seething rebellion and throne usurping all taking place amongst a large bunch of noisy, malevolent, nasty cousins...all served up with delicious relish and lots of "off with their heads" momentum. And...all true. Can't beat that combination!

History

I was hoping for a novel, but this is just a dull history book.

    Wake me up when this book is over.

    If you have ever read some of the riveting history books written by David McCollough or Doris Kearns Goodwin then you will definitely be disappointed by this book. Trying to cover hundreds and hundreds of years of history basically renders this book a dry list of dead people who briefly surface, marry, have a kid and then blip out of existence. None of these people truly come to life and are people you end up caring about. By the end you don't really care that this noble or that noble did not get paid for their conquest of French territory, you just hope that it will all be over soon.
    The book cover is very pretty though.
