review Ravenspur Rise of the Tudors 107 CF IgguldenI was of the PDF ↠ born in the normal way in and vaguely remember half pennies and sixpences I have written for as long as I can remember poetry short stories and novels It’s what I always wanted to do and read English at London University with writing in mind I taught English for seven Ravenspur Rise PDF or years and was Head of English at St Gregory’s RC High School in London by the end of that period I have enormous respect for those who still labour at the chalk face In truth I can’t find it in me to miss the grind of paperwork and initiatives I do miss the camaraderie of Rise of the PDF Î the smokers’ room as well as the lessons where their faces lit up as they understood what I was wittering on aboutMy mother is Irish and from an early age she told me history as an exciting series of stories – with dates My great grandfather was a Seannachie so I suppose story telling is in the genes somewhere My father flew in Bomber Command in WWII then taught maths and science Perhaps crucially he also loved poetry and cracking good tales Though it seems a dated idea now I began teaching when boys were told only girls were good at English despite the great names that must spring to mind after that statement My father loved working with wood and euations but he also recited ‘Vitai Lampada’ with a gleam in his eye and that matters franklyI’ve always loved historical fiction as a genre and cut my teeth on Hornblower and Tai Pan Flashman Sharpe and Jack Aubrey I still remember the sheer joy of reading my first Patrick O’Brian book and discovering there were nineteen in the series I love just about anything by David Gemmell or Peter F Hamilton or Wilbur Smith I suppose the one thing that links all those is the love of a good taleThat’s about it for the moment If you’d like to get in touch with me leave a comment in the forum or you can tweet me ConnIggulden I’ll leave it there for the moment If you’ve read my books you know an awful lot about the way I think already There’s no point overdoing itConn Iggulden.

    review Ravenspur Rise of the Tudors 107 Ravenspur Rise of the TudorsI read this book a year ago and it annoyed me so much at the time that I’m only just now bothering to write a review for it Poor editorial decisions have ruined what could have been a strong ending to an otherwise strong seriesIt should have been two books The first three hundred pages or so depicted the final days of Edward IV’s reign It was told in all the detail is should have been A perfect end to the novel would hav

    review Ravenspur Rise of the Tudors 107 Ravenspur Rise of the TudorsRavenspur is the final book I would think in Conn Iggulden's superb history of the Wars of the RosesThe tale begins with Edward IV of House York returning to England after being chased out by forces Loyal to Henry VI House Lancaster the current King of England But Henry VI is old and frail Edward lands in England at Ravenspur to wage war with the full might of his Plantagenet bloodlinePutting aside any historical judgements of their rule as Kings of England I would just like to point out that there IS something to be said of the Plantagenet bloodline when it comes to war and battle As an aside the Plantagenet line which is from Anjou in France was always of interest to me The name itself is said to derive from Plante Geneste Latin for Broom Plant it's a yellow plant the Counts of Anjou used to wear them on the side of their helmets which was the nickname for Geoffery Count of Anjou and Duke of Normandy Now some historians hailing usu

    review Ravenspur Rise of the Tudors 107 Ravenspur Rise of the TudorsNot so enamoured overall with this chapter found it a little staid in places as we jus ground out the historical timeline maybe thou that’s a tad harsh seeing as its a generational series most of my favourite characters are no the author hasn’t really brought any new characters to life

    review Ravenspur Rise of the Tudors 107 Ravenspur Rise of the TudorsThis is one of the best novels that I have read on the Wars of the Roses and I do not say that lightly Part of me is surprised that I can make such a statement about a book that does not necessarily portray each historical figure as I would have or highlight th

    review Ravenspur Rise of the Tudors 107 Ravenspur Rise of the TudorsOkay this will be short and sweet and will cover the whole series because to be honest there's not much of a difference between the books The Wars of the Roses series is a solid recounting of history and by solid I mean that the reader listener in my case gets a pretty good picture of the roots of the initial conflict and how it escalated into a decades long war that not only decimated the English nobility but also put a huge burden on the common people That's about it really Iggulden forgets however that a story needs relatable characters and there was simply none Well maybe with the exception of Henry VI's spy master Derry Brewer Even the first book's main conflict Jack Cade's revolt that included a huge group of common people unhappy about Henry VI's politics especially the loss of land in France can't breathe life into the st

    review Ravenspur Rise of the Tudors 107 Ravenspur Rise of the TudorsBrilliant end to magnificent series This really is a Game of Thrones but for real as the Houses of Lancaster and York battle each other their own siblings the French the Flemish and the Scots and Welsh to win the throne and then lose it as they have no plans once they seize it Breathless treachery brutal acts of revenge the rise and fall of Richard III and the start of the Tudors Wonderful stuff

    review Ravenspur Rise of the Tudors 107 Ravenspur Rise of the TudorsIt actually pains me to give this book only 3 12 stars I wish I could give it because I really liked the first three books and I almost did because it did some things that were very important to me rightFor example neither Richard

    review Ravenspur Rise of the Tudors 107 Ravenspur Rise of the TudorsThis book follows the author's trilogy on England's War of the Roses which I finished reading over 2 years ago At the time I finished that series I was somewhat critical of how the author ended his trilogy The last book ended shortly after the Battle of Towton in 1460 In my understanding of English history the War of the Roses didn't definitively end until the Battle of Bosworth Field in 1485 In my opinion the War was not over and there was some significant histor

    review Ravenspur Rise of the Tudors 107 Ravenspur Rise of the TudorsI felt that this final entry into his Wars of the Roses Series is the weakest book in the series In this novel Mr Iggulden divides the narrative into two parts The first is the restoration of Henry VI 1470 and Edward IV’s subseuent recapturing the throne in 1471 The second part is basically the story of Richard III reign from 1482 1485 and his defeat at Bosworth FieldIn telling the story of the events of 147071 the author starts off with the future Henry VII escaping with his uncle Jasper Tudor from Pembroke Castle I thought this was a very well done seuence but after
