According to Kindle I am now exactly 50% of the way through this book and am now caught up in the middle of the War of The Roses.
The book continues to rattle on apace. I thoroughly enjoyed the journey through the time of the plague and, in fact, that part did remind me of The Journal of a Plague Year by Daniel Defoe which I might read again after this.
This is a very pacey book and is certainly brings history to life. One of the isssues with a book which travels through history can be the lack of a central character to get involved and empathise with, but this book avoids that by having a clear, empathatic protagonist for each historical era. The differing fortunes of William Hastings and Eric Stainsby is enthralling and they seem very realistic. In fact, the book as a whole, seems very well researched and authentic. As well as enjoying a jolly good read I'm fairly sure I'm learning plenty too.
So, on that note, I think I'll get back to the book.
