One thought on “Richard: The Young King To Be (Richard III, #1)

  1. Ikonopeiston

    There is the skeleton of a good book, maybe even an excellent one buried beneath the adipose tissue of this volume Alas, it is buried too deeply for the typical reader to be bothered to excavate.Surely, any editor of minimal competence would have helped Wilkinson organize her material better This book reads as though the author was so excited by her subject and so pleased with what she had discovered or surmised about him that she simply dumped it all out and chortled over the mess There are lon [...]

  2. Linda

    This book starts slowly but it rewards patience The name is somewhat of a misnomer since no one knows exactly how Richard spent his childhood nor how any youngster, especially of noble blood did But the interesting part is how Wilkinson explains the history around Richard s childhood At times she psychologizes, which I didn t like, but it s her book She speculates on how Richard must have felt when his father and 2 older brothers were chased into exile and he, his mother and his brother and sist [...]

    Yes it s true, I m a medieval history geek I believe I ve read everything that s been published about Richard III There are several really good biographies of Richard some recent books that have discussed new discoveries from historical records This book, while well balanced neither excessively pro nor anti Richard , is not well written contains numerous typos Too bad as it could have been a good addition Nevertheless, I ll probably read Volume II.

  4. Nelina Kapetsoni

    This book is so unbelievably biased in favour of Richard, that ceases to be a history book There were parts where I felt I was reading fiction, and honestly I don t know why I don t stop reading it now Probably because I want to see how far the author will take it A disgrace

  5. John

    I agree with other reviewers, that the book lacked good editing It also lacked error checking For example, King Louis XI of France did not provide financial support to Henry Tudor s expedition in 1485, as King Louis had died in 1481
