Allow me to treat you like this since we met for so many years. Through your books only, but they really creates a bound between the author and the reader.
Concerning the Last Kingdom and the next volume, I’ve only two things to say: THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
I hope this series continuous until the end of days.
I’m from Portugal, I’m 47 now, and since my 16 I read you in English version because for me, even though the translations can be made by unquestionable skilled professionals, the impact of what the author wants to transmit, it gets lost. It’s the same from Portuguese to English.
Here, your Portuguese fans, we still waiting for a book based on the Aljubarrota battle with the Spanish.
Best Regards and keep on
Hello, Mr Cornwell.
My name is Marta Tracana, I'm from Portugal and I'm just sending this messege to thank you for your books.
I'm reading now Thomas and his adventure as a archer, reading in english and then in portuguese... just to be sure! :) So, because your books are so good and exciting, and give me many hours of great reading, I'm thanking you for that!
I just want to say how incredibly pleased I am to have read the Last Kingdom series, which only came about because I received the first book as a free kindle copy. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed reading all the books and I’m actually sad it’s over. Your ability to bring the moments of battle alive and transport your readers to that place thousand years ago is amazing. I’m grateful to have learnt more about those exciting and brutal times and would love to be able to continue my odyssey back in time. I have never ever written to an author before so please take this as a true testament of appreciation of your writing and this series in particular. Thank you.
War of the Wolf. Excellent! October 9 is marked on my calendar as I am chomping at the bit to read what's up with Uhtred! Thanks for the update.
i and 67 and have read all your books, every one, some multiple times like the Sharpe series. This last one about Shakespeare started show and I almost put it down but continued. It ended up being very good. I hope you write a sequel, Keep up the good work. you give my fat old ass something to look forward to.
My two favourite characters - Derfel Cadarn and Nicholas Hook - appreciate Derfel cannot return - but Hook simply has to - too good to leave with just one book.
I'm sure that from your time in and around the UK that you know the BBC programme 'Antiques Roadshow'.
In tonights's episode a lady with family links to General Baird brought along a very fine diamond brooch 'liberated' at Seringpatam in 1799.We both know of a former British soldier who was there in the early days of his military career. Mr.Sharpe and yourself might be interested to know that it was valued at £30,000.
You spoil us readers something rotten by being so prolific with a new book every 12 months or so.They are always well worth waiting for and your quality and standards never slip.To keep up such a volume what' your routine for writing your books.Also, what do you do to wind down.I'm aware of your interests in Amateur Dramatics and sailing but who or what do you read for pleasure.
Thanks again for all the reading pleasure you've given me and best wishes to you and yours
Mister Sharpe would plead complete ignorance of any looting at Seringpatam! But thank you –despite Sharpe’s ‘innocence’ he would admit that the looting of that city was extraordinary and reprehensible.
Dear Mr Cornwell,
It's well overdue and on behalf of many readers in my family I thank you for the wealth of entertainment you have given us in all your books. The Sharpe series resonates most as it shows the brutishness of battle amidst the characters' tensions and their humour. Your work inspired me to write The Sandstone Trilogy set in 19c Sydney. One again thank you and I look forward to more of your work.
I've read so many of your books more than once, and just recently found and purchased both series of the Last Kingdom.
Patrick O'Brien is the greatest legendary author ever and I have read his books many times over & over so I just wanted to say I consider you his equal, no praise could be higher.
Thank's for your great stories.
I have read the majority of your books (all the Richard Sharpe series, Nathaniel Starbuck and The Saxon Tales), now working on The Grail Quest.
I enjoy reading your novels immensely and now have taken the time to finally write and tell you of my admiration for your work.
