Updated Currently Reading

It’s been a few weeks, but I’ve updated my currently reading section. At the moment, I’m reading a couple of non-fiction medieval history books: The Warrior of God – Jan Zizka and the Hussite Revolution by Victor Verney, and The Crucible of the Middle Ages by Geoffrey Barraclough (book 2 of the Story of the Middle Ages Box Set). I’m thinking of finally getting around to reading Lion of Ireland by Morgan Llywelyn next. It’s been sitting on my bookshelf for a while.

What are you currently reading?

  • I’m in the process of reading Ivanhoe and I am nearly finished with one of Cornwell’s books. Ivanhoe is a bit difficult at times; it’s really heady.

  • The Last Kingdom. It’s a good story overall, but he seems to have some cliched characters and a bit of a bias against Christians.

  • I’ve only read up to the Pale Horseman, but I think Uhtred’s character will change over time, to at least respect Alfred and his Christian beliefs, even if he doesn’t adopt them. I don’t think Cornwell personally has a bias against Christians; I just think it’s the character in this particular series. In the Grail Quest Series, his main character is much more religious in terms of Christianity.

  • You are probably correct about that. I have seen some priests in the story who are quite honorable, too. Perhaps I’m just a bit too touchy.
