by pollkatz on October 11, 2008I'm not sure what my beef is with this series. The story matches real events, but the characters don't feel like medieval characters. They feel like modern suburbanites with medieval technology. One thing might be that the author makes no attempt to write dialog in a style that her characters might actually have spoken -- that's okay by itself (If I wanted to read Chaucer in the original, I would have bought Chaucer in the original), but she lets words and especially idiom slip in that would have been incomprehensible at the time. It's jarring, like in the movie Titanic when the girl gives somebody "the finger."
On the other hand, I do feel better-informed about the outlines of the saga of the White Ship, Stephen, all the Mauds and Matildas, Eleanor and Henry, an education acquired much less painfully than wading through some history professor's prose.
So, I'm on the fence.
