As usual, Bernard Conrwell has written here an amazingly well-crafted, engaging, top-notch book. There aren't enough stars to award to this writer of historical novels, in my view. My beef is with the e-book (the "Nook Book") version of Sharpe's Enemy. It cost more than most of the Nook books I've purchased, and yet, it turned out to the the worst quality I've yet seen. There were so many "typos," misplaced punctuation marks, random italizations, run together words, etc. that it became quite distracting and annoying. It reminds me of the documents that often result when you convert a pdf document to a Word document -- all sorts of strange things that have to be corrected where the software has mis-read something. In my view, this is inexcusable. Were it not for this problem, I'd have given the book 5 stars. I'm hoping that this poor quality was an anomaly, and that future books won't have the same problems. Thumbs-up to Mr. Cornwell, definite thumbs-down to the publisher!

I've read nearly the whole series. If you like war with lots of blood and guts hand to hand combat, spys, betrayal and sex this is the series for you. Sharpe is a 19th century "Special Ops" soldier that has been shot, slashed with swords, and whipped (even hung for murder)so often that he has scars from head to toe. He always comes out a winner even when there is no way he can possibly survive the latest trap. I'll really miss reading about his advantures when I finish the last of the series.

I've been working my way through the Richard Sharpe's series for about a year now. Bernard Cornwell is one of those rare authors that can tell a story about a battle that makes you think you're watching it in a movie theater. I won't give any spoilers but it's good to see Obadiah Hakeswill again.

Blending history with fiction in a way that makes you want more. DON'T buy any Dean Koontz novels EVER. He is stretching bad short stories into terrible novels.
