SPOILER FREEI virtually never leave reviews for books here but in this case I feel I have to justify listing this one as read where in fact I slogged 100 pages in over a period of a few weeks of apathetic reading and then abandoned it on the train may it find a happier reader I have back buttoned on a few tremendously crappy stories before but I think this might be the first case in which I ve abandoned a physical book like this other than obligatory school reading See I enjoy properly terrible fiction stuff that really scrapes the barrel And I like historical fiction or even historical fantasy but the problem for me with Conuest is that it somehow hits the wrong tone on every single note See I can read longer better nuanced and original fiction for free on the internet and the online community has evolved to a place now where it is almost rare to meet a genuine Mary Sue in the flesh But Hereward in this novel is exactly that It s actually difficult to define what exactly is so flawed with the text but at a minimum there is a failure follow any show don t tell rules and you get wads of this history book 101 exposition that takes all of the teeth out of the drama Moreover in this day and age there are ways to package up historical objectification of women or other ineuality that rings true to the era portrayed yet Conuest uses all but the main character cheaply while neglecting to give Hereward any real depth either so for me it was just plain uncomfortable to read I suppose the book is 6 years old now but even so 2011 was hardly a spit ago while this reads like something written in Different Times I think for me the main issue is this feels like a very surface level story It tells you a lot about action but not a lot about people and that s not really enough for me Hereward s ultimate glory is a given even when the story is trying to show you he is growing and so you don t get any real sense of actual progress He s impressive because the blank verse tells you so but there s no evidence and so it s difficult to grasp why everyone else in the story is convinced The villains are shallow and the women fall around the story convenient but needlessly naked purveyors of motivation and McGuffins At least they are in the first 100 pages but there s nothing really nothing to convince me it gets better further in More to the point why should I have to persevere for better It should be good from the start bad enough to be funny or at least just tolerably average I don t know what this is but there s a copy rattling around the Jubilee line for free if you want it How to Fly with Broken Wings justify listing this one as read where in fact I slogged 100 pages in over a period of a few weeks of apathetic reading and then abandoned it on the train
