Dear Mr Cornwell,

just finished Warriors of the Storm and really loved it. I love history and especially the english history and the making of England. Love writing style and I hope Uthred will ride again. Thank you for the wonderful moments I had reading your books.

I'm listening to the Sharpe series as I exercise. I read them long ago but this time I can appreciate the humor and the craft so much more. I have studied military history since my teenage years in the 'fifties. I re-enacted the French and Indian War and Washington's Indian War in the Ohio Country. So I really appreciate your accurate descriptions of weapons, tactics, and 18th century material culture. You have so contributed to the knowledge and pleasure of so many. Thank you.

I am a retired D&T teacher and have to manage the chronic pain that comes from spinal arthritis..  Your novels, along with good music, have been a wonderful source of entertainment, education and escape.  I would like to thank you for taking me to places where history was made and for teaching me more about the Napoleonic Wars than droning History teachers in draughty classrooms ever could ever hope to.  Thanks again!

Good Afternoon Mr. Cornwell and Co.,

I simply wanted to say "thank you" for your wonderful books.  I first discovered Sharpe and Harper while I was a cadet on board the T/S Golden Bear, a training ship for the United States Merchant Marine.  A well-thumbed copy of "Sharpe's Havoc" was buried in the ship's library and I was fortunate enough to stumble across it.  I have thoroughly enjoyed Mr. Sharpe's adventures and have managed to read most of your other works as well, including your recent non-fiction account of Waterloo.  Additionally, I have managed to read of a number of the books you referenced in your post-novel credits, and have enjoyed the majority of those as well.  In sum, I wanted to reach out and say "thank you" for your efforts.  I hope your pen continues to find the paper.

Sincerely,

D. Weir

Dear Mr. Cornwell,

I want to thank you for an especially exciting and thrill filled new story of Lord Uhtred.  I have been eagerly awaiting for the book to arrive from the UK, and I could not put it down.  This was an especially gripping story in the series, and one of my favorites.  Uhtred is still funny, intimidating, feared, respected, secretly kind and a warrior in every sense of the word.

You're an amazing author, and again, I just wanted to say thank you!

Did you see Ragnar The Elders death? - usually a departure from the Book loses something, but on this occasion - fantastic !!

Hi

Mr. Cornwell,First I would like to apologize for the following misspellings, I am Brazilian and I have a little trouble with the English language so I use a bit of translation engines available on the web.I would like to congratulate you for your incredible work that helped me to create a different perspective on the world. I've always been a fan of history and foreign literature, and also greatly appreciate the mythological part. And his books can join it in a unique way and wonderful.The Saxon Stories is incredibly exciting, especially the book "The Lord of the North" which is my favorite in this series. I recently read "The Empty Throne" which was translated a few months I my country, and I'm anxious for the next book. Then I started reading his books, I began to study harder the English language to be able to able to read his works in original language. For its history of life I consider you a great man and I am inspired by you. I wanted to wish you much happiness and health, for you to continue increasingly inspiring young people like me through literature.

Denis Costa.

Just seen the news that the Chronicles and Alfred story will be on the BBC. Brilliant - they have been my holiday reading for goodness knows how long - I can't trust myself to read them when I'm working - they would take over my life.

I teach English. My degree in the '70s began with 'Beowulf' and a study of Anglo-Saxon as a language - and I also did Anglo-Saxon Archaeology at the same time. Thank you for your books.
