S mother the Anarchy Making MOBI #224 Empress Matilda and her cousin Stephen a time so traumatic it becomes known as the AnarchyThe greatest letter writer of the th Century Folio gives an intimate account of one of England's most troubled eras Central to his account is the life of a knight he first met over fifty years earlier Harold of HerefordHarold's life is an intriguing microc. ReviewAnarchyIt s such an apt name for the time period of this book and one I m ashamed to know little aboutThis title by Stewart Binns is something on the surface I should have found fault with should have picked holes in There is a certain amount of generality to the people the nations the time period The plot misses so much rich depth that could have been added to the time periodAnd yet none of this matters because the plot powers along at a wonderful pace the characters are real humble flawed and at the same time stylised in such a fashion that it appeals at a different level for me This series has for me been about a journey to find and explore the innate elements that make the British British What are the character building blocks that created the stiff upper lip the boys own childish delight in tinkering the genius for innovation the intrepid explorers and the do or die trying spirit When you break it down to Celts Saxons Danes Normans etc Mix all of this into a pot that is the uniue landscape and history of the country you get the BritishHarold of Herford is the latest incarnation the latest ingredient in the mix and all of it is done with power pace style and a little I believe humourThe Historical content to be honest I didn t even give it a thought I m sure there are many fictional elements in here driving the story against a flat background of real history But the power and charm of this book is the telling not the facts I will go an learn about this period and I expect there to be many differences At the same time this is about the mix the moral and the tale telling EG the introduction of Robert of Hode and William of Scarlette It Should have added an element of farce but instead added a great little side legend and the development of the Robin Hood legend and its possible tie to the Hereward legend The whole book was a pleasure to read and I think shows the authors talent in television how to engage with the audience and carry them on a journey with his cast of characters This book was devoured in a single sitting and went past so fast it left me missing the people involved and wondering what comes next and how long do I need to wait for me a sure sign of a really good readand a book can be a damn fine read whilst not being the best book everI have no issue recommending this very Highly as a splendid way to spend the dayParm
