Sorry for English, I used google translator to help me write it. I am very fan of his works, and were they who gave me strength to start writing my own book. Thank you for putting me in the most amazing battles and make me, a privileged spectator of these battles.
I have been making my way thru your books, series, by series. I was told about them by my nephew Andrew who was in the army in Afgn and wanted me to send him something to read. He wanted to read about Arthur. Since then I have been sending your books thru http://booksforsoldiers.com/ to lots of military. They seem to enjoy them as much as I.
Thanks for the great pleasurable time reading.
I've just finished reading 1356 and wanted to let you know how much I have enjoyed not just this latest book, but all of your works. History has always fascinated me; adding you characters and style to the mix makes it that much more enjoyable. The worst part now is waiting for you to finish the next installment in whichever series you are working on...so get busy! All kidding aside, a big thank you from an "English As A Second Language" American of Cuban descent. Stay busy!
Dear Mr. Cornwell:
Just wanted to say that I'm enjoying reading the Saxon Stories the second time around. The first time through I was reading with a curious and critical eye since I considered myself a "well-read" Viking expert, and wanted to see how you treated MY ancestors, with all due respect to yours, the Anglo-Saxons. With the exception of the few trivial points I included in my first email some time ago, I think you've done a fine job and I'm just enjoying the stories now. I am curious how you'll deal with the period after Alfred's death when "England" did become a part of Denmark thanks to Sweyn "Forkbeard" Harldson, and Knut "The Great" Sweynson (sorry, Uhtred).
Like so many of us, I work in an incredibly stressful environment and in the evenings I continue to work from home. I find that tv does not allow me to stop thinking over and over about work but that my one place of real escapism is your books. Whether I've been fighting Vikings, the Tippoo, or the French or even trying to figure out how to get ridiculously large stones to float, I am away living different lives. Thanks so much old fella for all of this.
As a retired soldier (6 years British army and 6 years Australian Army) followed by 27 years as a paramedic I have had the pleasure of reading many of your books and have enjoyed all of them. The action and the fear in the combat scenes are very real as is the carnage that follows. I am an avid reader and unfortunately had not found any truly original stories for many years until I picked up Sword Song, it and all of your books brought back memories of my childhood and teenage years. Like you I have chosen to live in a land far from my birthplace, and I am now a proud and patriotic Australian, but I always remember my English roots and proudly fly the flag of St George next to the Australian flag on appropriate days.
I look forward to your next book.
Can't wait to The Pagan Lord comes in Danish, so I have just started all over from the beginning for the third time!
I just would like to say that I find all your books a huge great read. I have read them all and often get a series out and start again, especially Sharpe. Being and ex soldier I am fascinated with how ancient warfare and how it happened, and you make it so clear. Please keep up the good work.
Just found you, death of kings, love books set in real history, now I have plenty, Born in Scarbourough Yorks now a Yank in Arizona. Will read all your stuff if I live long enough. Chris R
Good Morning Mr. Cornwell!!!
I don't wish to take up valuable time. I just wanted to thank you for getting me interested in reading. And even the idea of writing. I love your books, especially the Grail Quest ones. You are my absolute favorite author. I wish you a splendid day Bernard!!!!
