    Paperback ´ Devil's Brood eBook ✓ devil's kindle, brood pdf, Devil's Brood PDFEPUBI was zipping along merrily through this book enjoying the journey but still feeling that neither Time Chance nor Devil's Brood were quite as gripping as Maude's story in When Christ and His Saints Slept when suddenly I realised and I'm not sure when it happened that I had become very deeply invested in Henry's story Eleanor of Aquitaine and Henry II were a delightful couple to read about Delightful in the sense that their fiery personalities lust for one another and for power their stubbornness and their ambitions all made for a very tumultuous marriage It was as full of heartache as it was full of passion Eleanor was especially interesting and I found myself on her side than Henry's during the previous book and earlier chapters of this one I could feel her fury and frustration when her beloved Aquitaine came under her husband's control and she was given little say in its future I am

    Paperback ´ Devil's Brood eBook ✓ devil's kindle, brood pdf, Devil's Brood PDFEPUBThere's probably a connection between why I read 3 Sharon Kay Penman books with such ease back in the early to mid 2000s and yet couldn't finish one in 2012 At the same time ye olde 2000s I was going through a high fantasy phase and huge doorstoppers with a cast of thousands riding around to villages and other countries talking about quests and prophecies surrounded by a zillion details fit in quite well with Penman's style of having a cast of thousands riding around to taverns and castles talking about battles and intrigues surrounded by a zillion historical factsExcept I no longer read high fantasy I got tired of the bloated excess and almost OCDness of the author to leave no day unwritten about no step of a journey unremarked

    Paperback ´ Devil's Brood eBook ✓ devil's kindle, brood pdf, Devil's Brood PDFEPUB Devil’s Brood is an absolute rollercoaster of a novel Now in my mind there are two types of rollercoaster novels One kind swings wildly from one extreme of emotion to another melodramatically creating mountains out of mol

    Paperback ´ Devil's Brood eBook ✓ devil's kindle, brood pdf, Devil's Brood PDFEPUBIf Eleanor of Aquitaine’s marriage to King Henry II wasn’t passionate and tumultuous enough it gets even spiced up when their sons rebel against their father with Eleanor’s aid resulting in her captivityhouse arrest Sharon Kay Penman leaves the drama of the murder of Thomas Becket behind in “Time and Chance” and follows th

    Paperback ´ Devil's Brood eBook ✓ devil's kindle, brood pdf, Devil's Brood PDFEPUBThere is one thing you can't fault Penman for and that's her research It's thorough copious and usually factual almost OCD in places But what I do fault her for is her need to include every single word of it in her novels This one was so bloated by research that it floated belly up slowing the narrative distancing characters from the reader and was downright tedious distracting in places And as fascinating as most of the information was although I could well have lived without knowing how 12th century Welshmen cleaned their teeth or that Henry had a painful abscess in is groin near the end of his life a lot of it really had no place in the story which led to ridiculous amounts of exposition and dialogue between characters discussing stuff they would have already kn

    Paperback ´ Devil's Brood eBook ✓ devil's kindle, brood pdf, Devil's Brood PDFEPUBI have enjoyed Ms Penman's writing for many years She seems to be able to accurately craft characters and scenes that are true to life within the context of their age She is one of the few medieval writers that can describe strong female characters and yet does not pander to an audience or seem to cross the line in modernizing them At least that is how it seems to me Her Eleanor of Aquitaine is amazing in this book She is the most three dimensional and conflicted of all of the major characters presentedThe only thing I would like to see often in Ms Penman's books are stories seen through the eyes of the peasantry The poor souls who fight work and die so that all these nobles can play their high stakes political games Her books focuses solely on the upper aristocracy of the middle agesAs I read this book I was cont

    Paperback ´ Devil's Brood eBook ✓ devil's kindle, brood pdf, Devil's Brood PDFEPUBThere is much less in the way of historical error in this book Ms Penman's research has tightened up and become outstanding by fiction standards and actually by historical standards I have read less convincing historiansThis very comprehensively tells the story of the dysfunctional family dynamics that tore the family of Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine apart the tragedy of the death of two sons and the heartrending end of Henry himself Along the way we also get the story of William Marshal which is a dramatic bravura performance in it's own rightThere is not a single major character in this novel who is not well drawn and interesting Henry II was in my own view one of the most interesting of the English kings He was also arguably one of the most successful despite the dire family dynamics And despite history's
