I found your book, "The Burning Land" in a sale bin at a local bookstore. It looked interesting so I purchased it. That was a pleasant introduction to your works and I read it cover to cover in one sitting. Then went looking for your other books. It is a pleasure to find new authors with great works.
I have read most of your books, and I am reading your non-fiction Waterloo book recently released. Pretty darn good as we say here in Eastern Canada. I only normally read non- fiction so am enjoying this book even more than the others. Thanks for your work!!
Christmas came early this year thanks to Amazon UK...you can get Bernard's newest book 3 months early...also Waterloo... Up late last night enjoying yet another great read...The opening discusses the inlay on the sword...PBS did a piece called "Secrets of the Viking Sword" last year where they discuss the history of the high carbon steel swords with the inlay, and actually recreate one.. fascinating... Thanks again for your wonderful writing.
I wanted to tell you how much I loved Waterloo. I was so fortunate to have the chance to go to London last week, and my husband surprised me and took me to your book signing, since I am such a huge fan.
I devoured Waterloo. I've read a lot of books about the Napoleonic Wars. I publish with a small press here in Utah, and my books have been based during that time, so you know how much research that takes. I've read a lot, but not one I enjoyed as much as your Waterloo. I was touched, and fascinated, and you have a way of explaining things so concisely that even though I have researched this era so much, I kept thinking...Oh, that's what happened, that makes sense.
I thought I would miss Richard Sharpe, but I was sucked in and found the real participants in the battle brought to live beautifully.
Anyway, it was a pleasure to meet you and as much as I love the Sharpe novels, Waterloo is the best thing I've read all year.
many thanks for signing my copy of the 'The Empty Throne' today in York.
I was delighted to meet both your self and your good lady wife.
You made my day when you mentioned my intended dedication was written in Anglo Saxon as opposed to English.
'Wyrd bid ful araed'
Thank you for visiting York.
It was an honour to meet you. Keep up the good work.
Dear Mr Cornwell,
Having just finished The Empty Throne I'm all ready twitching with withdrawal, please don't make this addict wait another two years for his next fix!!
I have just finished reading your latest book which I found difficult to put down. Six years ago my mother found out she was dying of cancer. Within 3 months she sold her house, divided up her possessions and sorted out her will. She refused to pass on until she had finished reading Sword Song. She will be miffed that the story has continued. Please hurry up with the next one.
My condolences on the loss of your mother.
I have just finished The Empty Throne and really enjoyed the latest adventures of Uhtred. Can you please write (lots) more about him again soon? I am stricken and long to read about his quest to win back Bebbanburg. Please keep writing don't stop!
All best wishes
I would just like to thank you so much for penning yet another wonderful story about our hero Uhtred. I loved it and cannot wait for the next book.
Sharpe's Waterloo - Great book, and thank you. I particularly enjoyed the depiction of the battle at Quatre Bras on Friday, when General Kellermann led the cavalry charge against the British infantry in line formation. I showed the passage to my wife, Liza Kellermann, a descendent of the General's, and she got a kick out of it. We had wondered if a Kellermann would make it into one of your books.
I look forward to reading your nonfiction account of the Waterloow campaign. Sharpe's version is clarifying some points I've never understood about it.
