Uhtred is a man of action, and peace does not suit him. He comes into his own when strategising and fighting in battle. I find him hard to relate to sometimes as he makes very questionable choices, but he is also honourable and loyal. He becomes more likeable in this book, and you really start to root for him to succeed. I hope he continues to grow with the series!

No reading done today for #24in48 as was mostly looking after this little guy, and in his sleepy spells I hung out with my partner playing Witcher (we are very excited about the tv series later this year!).

I got about 6/7 hours in total and finished The Last Kingdom, which is more reading than I have managed in total over the last month, so I am very happy with that ☺️

Good luck to all those still going!!!

I liked this book so much more than the first one 💚 there were less explanations and more plot and character development going on and it really got me interested in that series 🙊

All books (that I haven't kept back for potential reading between now and move) have been packed with the exception of this one. It will likely end up with the DVDs. #notallboxeshownhere #packingisapita

LeahBergen Wow!!! How long until you move/get to unpack? 3y
drokka @LeahBergen I get to start unpacking in 16 days. I move on the 19th, but want to get the Guinea Pig Posse and everything else sorted first. Then as I unpack these boxes, I'll catalogue the books. Only have about 200 done, of I think roughly 4000. (edited) 3y

"When the sun vanished Iseult was singing softly in her own tongue, but she told me the song was about Arthur and how he had placed a ladder against the moon and netted a swath of stars to make a cloak for his queen, Guinevere."

Uhtred's narration is powerful, he brings history alive. And THAT gives me a high that I cannot throughly explain. This type of storytelling is pure comfort food to me. The Pale Horseman is such a good story—the series is a great epic! I have not been this excited & hooked on a series in a long while. Seriously, this book gave me all sorts of comfort food feelings, a rush & immense satisfaction of immersing myself in a brilliantly written story.

andreadmw Added to stack. I've loved every book by this author I've ever tried. 3y
ibeeeg @andreadmw have you read the first book? (The Last Kingdom) if not, start there. The Pale Horseman is the 2nd book of the series. I read the first one but listened to the audio with this one. I loved the printed book, but part of me wonders if the audio narration added a depth to this book that I've would have missed out on if I read it. If that's true, it probably added little but enough to help some slower patches have more meaning (guessing). 3y

Harsh. Cruel. Violent. Arrogant. The narrator, Uhtred, is not how I saw him in the first book. Not sure I like him in this book. Yet, I am hooked. Uhtred's narration brings the story alive, and I, with pleasure, eat up the tale he tells. I'm now about half-way done with the book, and Uhtred has grown on me. I'm starting to like him, once again. King Alfred has me most curious. The times intrigue me. I eagerly anticipate each listening session.

Autumn Book List

I'm taking my own challenge to read 10 books during the months of October and November. Out of the 10 books, 5-7 of them need to be ones that I already own. I've given myself the ability to swap out 3 books (which have yet to be chosen). So far this month, I have already completed 2 books on my list.

Are there any books that you would like to reading during October and November?

ibeeeg Autumn List:
Blink | Malcolm Gladwell
The World of the Ger | Chaim Clorfene
In the Woods | Tana French
Daughter of Smoke & Bone | Laini Taylor
Till We Have Faces | C.S. Lewis
The Invasion of the Tearling | Erika Johansen
House of Leaves | Mark Z. Danielewski

That is what great story telling is about. As I went to sleep each night reading this novel, I awoke, not in the 21st century, but in the 9th. In England as it must have been then, the damp, the sound of battle cries in my head, the smell of fires, the bitter cold, and the knowledge that we fight for a cause...and her name is England...

Texreader Yes this is a fantastic series!!! 3y
Book_Gnome @Texreader I am so hooked!!! 3y
Book_Gnome I have an ARC copy of the next that comes out next month so I really have to get reading! 3y
bookfrivolity It's an amazing series.. I love the way it feels like your sitting down with Uhtred as he spins his tale of adventure.. It works great as an audiobook! 3y
Texreader This book creates a lot of mind pictures even though I read this a long time ago. 3y

I read this about a year or two ago and loved it. A tale of a Saxon growing up with Vikings. Full of battles and struggle.

Just as good as the first. And I loved the first. Now I can watch the BBC America show based on these first two books in Cornwell's The Warrior Chronicles / Saxon Series.

Awk_Word_Smith Unfortunately, the BBC America series forgoes a majority of the first book--a grievous oversight. 4y

I'm loving this series -- Saxons & Danes, the Church vs Thor, love, battles, friendships, foes. Cornwell brings the late 800s alive. The audio is only okay, but the story is great.

SuziQoregon The Hubster binge read the first four books. He never does that. I hope to read the first one this month. 4y
LitHousewife That would be new territory for me. Sounds like something fun to try this summer. 4y
BethFishReads @LitHousewife if you like historical fiction & Vikings, you'd love this series 4y
