Summary from GoodReads: The Plantagenets live, love and quarrel agian, rallying to the trumpet call of MRs. Barnes' inimitable talent, in this deft and zestful re-creaton of England and the Middle East in the time of the Crusades. This is the story of the flamboyant Richard Coeur de Lion, and of the fortunes of the people caught up in his campaigns of love and war.

My Review: You all remember how much I enjoy history right? Well, for the history buff, this book doesn't cut it. There were more than a few historical errors and the timelines, to me, just don't add up.

However, looking beyond my historical compulsive disorder, the book is a good read. It does flow smoothly. To me, it lacked some *reach out and grab me* from the characters, but all in all those who read for the story and myth more so than for the historical point of view will enjoy this one.

  1. I'm sorry the history wasn't what you expected it to be. I know how much you enjoy it.
