Great Journey Marred by the Archaic

Beautifully bound and illustrated, Doyle immersed himself in archaic English and French and delivers in this fascinating adventure about one of the Crusades. I must add that what he delivers is a bit of a muddle for 21st Century readers -- so many names of official positions in Middle English and French -- the names of foods, places, past-times -- though they lend tremendous flavor to the narrative, are maddening in that they require continual sorting out, or looking up in the dictionary or online. Still, the heroes journey has a sweep that is irresistible.

Great book!

by lisagayle on Dec 23, 2011

One of my new all-time favorites! I wasn't sure if I would like it, but as a medieval history major, I love historical fiction and non-fiction. VERY entertaining and witty. Some of Sir Nigel's dialogue had me laughing out loud.
