Overview

Sir Nigel by Arthur Conan Doyle

Set in the middle of the 14th century, Sir Nigel is a swashbuckling story of the eponymous hero as he seeks his fortune & the hand of his lady-love in England & France in the early part of the Hundred Years War. It is full of high romance & chivalry, battles & brutality, humor & sheer rumbustiousness as the impoverished Nigel Loring & his attendant Aylward seek their fortunes. Edward III, the Black Prince, Sir John Chandos — one of the original Knights of the Garter — all make their appearances in one of the favorite books from the pen of the creator of Sherlock Holmes.

This is the back story of Sir Nigel, a character from "The White Company."  Sir Nigel is a knight-errant who seeks to gain honor in order to impress the lady he loves.  Doyle's language in this book is unsurpassed in all of literature.  I highly recommend it.

A great adventure! Really fun to read. This version is nice and clean too, no errors. The other review must be for a different version, mine was fine. My cover is green, with a black flag and shield.

A problem that too many printed books have these days is misprints, & this is full of them. I'm not writing of Anglo/American differences, but actual misprinted words & punctuation. And that was the English part; I know no French, so I can only imagine the mess made of the parts in that language! The story itself, a prequel to The White Company, is interesting enough to make these printing faults even more glaring & annoying. This & other publishers need to stop relying on computerized spell-checkers & go back to editors who really know the language!

A wonderful hystorical romance by one of the greats. Honorable wars written with integrity.
