    Tombland review Ð E-book or Kindle E-pub Tombland My life will change utterlySince my sinful eyes sawthis noble land so much admired Shardlake is back So good Loved this book took it slow Big five stars loved it Great history and crime fiction of the highest uality and entertaining value Sansom is without doubt a very talented writer and has created a really great series starring the integer hunchback lawyer Matthew Shardlake And Jack Barak What can I say loved it But man 866 pages is a big book uite difficult to read a few pages in bed before going to bed More than once I lost control and the book went to the floor But well worth it well worth it Although if I were to have some comment it would be that maybe a thorough edit would have made the story a bit sharp and fast paced But then I rather liked the pace and the attention to detail Will return with as usual Highly recommended for all you history fiction fans out there Wish I could continue immediately with the next adventure of Shardlake in the servic

    Tombland review Ð E-book or Kindle E-pub TomblandThe essential problem with this book is that it didn't know whether it wanted to be an extended account of the Kett Rebellion told via the characters we all know and love or a murder mystery It certainly failed in its aim to be both The apparent driver of the plot is the surprising discovery of a woman long thought dead When Edith is found murdered in sickening circumstances her last port of call at the home of young Elizabeth is cause for concern Shardlake is dispatched with conflicting instructions find out who did it but don't make too much noise How anyone at this point could imagine he could investigate anything without making enough racket to wake the dead is beyond me but that's the premise Essentially though this gets sidelined by his being swept up

    Tombland review Ð E-book or Kindle E-pub TomblandThis long awaited 7th novel in the Matthew Shardlake series is based around 1549 Kett's Rebellion and a mystery murder which Matthew is asked by the Lady Elizabeth to investigate As the Author himself admits the Rebellion is not as famous as the Peasants’ Revolt of 1381 We are presented with the reasons behind the rebellion we meet some historic figures and we get to know how the rebellion progressed Incredibly interesting

    Tombland review Ð E-book or Kindle E-pub TomblandAnother totally brilliant book in this wonderful series by CJ Sansom I have missed Matthew Shardlake while we have been waiting for this next adventure to be published but I guess it takes a while to write 850 perfect pages Takes a while to read them too No skimming allowed or even needed when the author writes this well This is historical fiction at its best One reviewer I read likened this book to Wolf Hall and I agree The time period here is just after Henry V111's death and the country is in limbo with a boy king and his uncle acting as protector Matthew is working for Lady Elizabeth Henry's 15 year old daughter The book revolves around Kett's Peasant rebellion and events take place mostly at Norwich which was at that time the second largest c

    Tombland review Ð E-book or Kindle E-pub Tombland‘Was there ever such a year as this’There was a lot of speculation about whether this book would be completed and I was so hopeful and impatient for it to be And then here it was An enormous tome It was wonderful and for the first time in this series about a period and time I knew almost nothing about Shardlake et al get swept up into the politics and upheaval of Kent’s rebellion while investigating a case in Norwich This is a book to savour the details are so evocative and detailed so well written that even when a part of me was huffing and puffing at the actual case seemingly pushed to the side by the rebellion the descriptions and character portraits of the incidental characters kept me thoroughly absorbedLet’s hope there’s to come

    Tombland review Ð E-book or Kindle E-pub TomblandNovel 7 of the Shardlake series The year is 1549 two years after the death of Henry VIII The nominal king Edward VI is only 11 years old and his uncle Edward Seymour rules the country as Protector Peasants revolts are flaring up in increasing numbers in parts of rural England against the unjust enclosures of common land by the gentry who put in ever larger flocks of sheep thus depriving villagers of common pasture land Interesting to read that you could already find civil disobedience on such a large scale at that time Big rebel camps were established to house the rebels and defend the populace against actions by the Protector and the nobility As is his usual misfortune Shardlake finds himself once again at the wrong place at the wrong time being sent to Norfolk on

    Tombland review Ð E-book or Kindle E-pub TomblandBeen saving this for a few months now kinda working up some steamstamina to read it as it’s a solid looking brick and I can’t shake the feeling that this is gonna be overtly longWith that feeling entrenched I have to say it took me around two sittings about 70 pages to get into a rhythm with the book which was helped with the re emergence of some of the old characters from the prior book Guy then Tamasin followed soon after by Barak There has been much change in Shardlake’s life since the prior book the style of writing even seemed diffo early on Then the familiarity returns I’m warming to his new employees the location of Norwich being the setting for the “investigation” but at jus over 200 pages I couldn’t
