My first Bernard Cornwell and I loved every second of itSet in the Elizabethan era this follows a group of theatrical players as they battle against the disreputable name of their trade to hone their craft and strive to continue doing what they love But this is not just any group of players This group is the Lord Chamberlain Men led by playwright William Shakespeare And this renowned historical figure is unlike you have ever seen him portrayed beforeI appreciated how the focus remained historically correct and factual as far as I am aware whilst also delivering an entertaining story line London has never been an easy place to dwell but this really helped me to visualise the every day struggles and strife of those who reside there It depicted crowded streets dank alley ways and noble manor houses with a flair of narrative that helped me to clearly visualise and to truly feel every facet of every sceneFocusing on actual historical figures always brings an additional entertaining element to fiction but here I appreciated how the individuals were not painted as completely virtuous and pure as many deceased and beloved fictional figures often are William Shakespeare especially was shown to have violent fits of rage be cold and underhand often uncaring for human suffering and focused only on his own creations and the success of their performance These often scathing depictions came from the protagonist and William s brother Richard Shakespeare The family dynamic was an interesting one that opened up these notorious historical figures and allowed them to become than just two dimensional impressions They were real They were human And so they were flawedI have read other reviews that state this as their least favourite of Cornwell s creations and I can to an extent see why The pacing was rather slow There was less action and intrigue and of a slowly built understanding of Elizabethan life formed I found I adored this utter immersion into these past lives and found this an entirely fascinating insight The pace was slow for a reason and really benefited this particular story line for meI received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review Thank you to the author Bernard Cornwell and the publisher Harper Collins for this opportunity
