Not Like the Movie
Reviewed in the United States on January 15, 2018
I had such high hopes for the movie when it came out. But, of course, they ruined it. Not like other books you read that are great novels and would be very difficult to capture the feeling you get reading it. The great movie is right there written in the book. They just need to try reading it. Anyway, the grittyness of the dark ages is so real in this that you wonder how anyone survived back then. Definitely not like an Errol Flynn movie. Nobody spoke English, the knights are built like body builders, and if you’re caught in the woods, you’re assumed to be a bandit and immediately killed. Dang. It’s good.
