    Kindle pamyatnik.pro ï The Brothers York eBook Ñ The Brothers Kindle - brothers epub, york kindle, The Brothers epub, The Brothers York eBookMy thanks to Simon and Schuster and NetgalleyI nearly didn't leave a review for this I will confess that I hate when I do that Truth is that I had a difficult time with this It's not the author nor the editing Maybe I'm too full of myself Surely after all the fantasy I've read I can keep up with thisNope I'm always honest to myself Myself has kept track of The Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan That's hundreds of character's I knew them allThis? I think they are all crazy I lost track of them a hundred or page's in In most fantasy books I'd have kept reading But this was the truth At least as it's seen today I hate itI'm not a fan of Royalty Ever I

    Kindle pamyatnik.pro ï The Brothers York eBook Ñ The Brothers Kindle - brothers epub, york kindle, The Brothers epub, The Brothers York eBookAlthough this claims to 'casts the War of the Roses in a fresh light' I'm not convinced that it does which doesn't detract from the story at all but I'm not sure there's anything new here Penn's intent of focusing on the three York brothers Edward George and Richard becomes skewed as Edward doesn't die till close to the end of the book and only the final 15% or so concentrates on Richard's 'power grab' as Penn would likely say Clarence has his moment in the middle of the book as we'd expectThis is definitely a cross over book it's written with an eye on a generalist audience and uses familiar and studiedly unacademic language 'as the leader

    Kindle pamyatnik.pro ï The Brothers York eBook Ñ The Brothers Kindle - brothers epub, york kindle, The Brothers epub, The Brothers York eBookFor a vast proportion of my life I was convinced that I felt nothing but total contempt and disinterest when it came to the topic of history and as a conseuence avoided it But this book has reignited my love of history and focuses solely on the House of York and the fact that it managed to destroy itself from the inside out This is a complex and compulsively readable political thriller and manages to tell the story of the House of York and its eventual downfall in a very engagin

    Kindle pamyatnik.pro ï The Brothers York eBook Ñ The Brothers Kindle - brothers epub, york kindle, The Brothers epub, The Brothers York eBookFor some reason I expected this to be Historical Fiction but it turned out to be History It's about the Wars of the Roses and the Brothers from the York dynasty who might have filled the place that the Tudor family does in history instead if it hadn't been for in fightingThere are long chapters with just the occasional line break As such it took me uite a long time to read it in small increments It was also just a bit dry but the subject is interesting and kept my attention I found it amazing how England came so close to having a very different historyOverall I really enjoyed the book and it filled in a big gap in the my knowledge of history I do prefer historical accounts that tell the story of people rather than impersonal war statistics and this definitely fulfilled that preference for me
