Christy English Ø 1 SUMMARY

SUMMARY Ì To Be ueen REVIEW É TRAMZ.CO Ø Christy English Christy English Ø 1 SUMMARY Chosen as one of the Top 10 Historical Fiction Novels of 2011 by the Pittsburgh Historical Fiction ExaminerThe author of The ueen's Pawn delves into the early life of the legendary Eleanor of Auitaine in her new historical novel After her father's. I would describe To Be ueen as a definite page turner though that descriptive alone doesn t suggest any positive or negative implications rather it s what makes it a page turner that counts I would say that the novel is partly a page turner because it s an enjoyable read I was entertained enough to apply myself and stick with it pretty consistently reading it cover to cover in two days non continuously However it is also a page turner because it s easy to read Is that a good thing or a bad thing Well neither I would argue When I say the book was easy to read I mean that it was clear accessible and flowed well which is definitely good but at the same time I also mean that I found it pretty unchallenging Again this has neither positive nor negative connotations for me I could have handled something challenging had it been played that way and I do take enjoyment from challenging novels but eually I didn t need this novel to be challenging in order to enjoy it A book being easy to read only becomes a bad attribute if it ends up being overly patronising to its readers or oversimplifying its plot I did notice that perhaps the plot of To Be ueen was somewhat on the simplistic side but it wasn t too simplistic and it never patronised I m uite happy to say that in the vast majority the ease of reading To Be ueen was a positive attributeExpanding on my comment about the relative simplicity of the plot and I do stress the word relative here Christy English does cover all the necessary bases and key points in Eleanor s early life and believe me there is a lot of material to sift through I never felt like she left out any of the major points out that one would want to see in this story However there was an element of paring down and keeping things simple English doesn t attempt to cover every event in Eleanor s early life which would admittedly be a monumental task In places we jump ahead a few years and whilst I would have been eager to read and have those gaps filled this was not a major detriment to the book there was enough material there that we could join the dots and it wasn t strictly necessary to the plot to cover those extra events At other points events from Eleanor s life that are part of the story are pared down or simplified or else are given a different focus if you will For example Eleanor s time on Crusade is not covered wholesale view spoilerthe attack on French forces but not on Eleanor s troops has been slightly shifted from the factual unfolding of that event I think partially to simplify it and partially to incorporate a scene of fictional devising hide spoiler
