This Novel of Arthur is marvelous. This trilogy is narrated by a warrior in Arthur's army called Lord Derfel Cadarn. The story starts during the Dark Ages of Britain when Uther Pendragon was the High King. The different kingdoms within Britain are fighting against each other. How will Arthur bring peace back to Britain?
The reason why this book is wonderful is that the way Bernard Cornwell describes the gory fights and battles. It is very vivid. His description of the love between Arthur and Guinevere or Derfel and Ceinwyn is also impressive and romantic. Although I wish the author

5つ星のうち 5.0 A fresh take on the King Arthur Legends... 2016/5/3
投稿者 Kimberley - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック Amazonで購入
I must confess that the first time I picked this book up I got a bit bogged down in the names and places. There just wasn't quite enough familiarity to help me keep them straight. So I put it down for a few months. Then I picked it up again and, for some reason, things went much faster. I do think it gets off to a slightly slow start, however, this is necessary to set the stage. I've already started the second book in the series and it pretty much jumps right back into the action. If you're looking for a very fresh take on the King Arthur legends, this book should be right up your alley. The narrator is a fascinating character all by himself, and the rest of the crew (both familiar and new) are complex, compelling characters that make you love them and hate them in turn. There is lots of action here in the form of battles. That's not usually my thing, but these are well written enough to keep my interest. If you DO like battles, you're going to be deliriously happy with this book. A gem!

5つ星のうち 5.0 Pagan Place 2006/12/16
投稿者 Gary Griffiths - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック Amazonで購入
Forget knights in shining armor performing chivalrous deeds for damsels in distress; forget Camelot and massive castles with gleaming stone turrets and round tables. Bernard Cornwell's "The Winter King" rips a bleak and gritty tale of the legendary Arthur, a realistic rendering of life in Briton's 5th Century, a period of history described as "The Dark Ages" for good reason.

As always, Cornwell's fiction based-in-history is well researched and fast moving. And while the evidence of Arthur is inconclusive, his faithful depiction of Briton's warlords fighting each other, even while the dreaded Saxon's occupy the eastern half of the island, is fact. The ancient Pagan religion vies with the emerging Christianity for mind share of the populace, while Druids and Christian Priests intermingle with no love lost. It's been a couple of generations since the Roman's packed up and left, taking with them, it seems, any semblance of civilization, leaving the natives in awe of their knowledge. The once great Roman roads and cities have drifted into disrepair, and rival tribes raising armies and taxes to battle their brethren drain the land. In this war torn land, Cornwell's Arthur returns from service across the sea in Armorica (France). Arthur is not a king, but a noble and loyal leader sworn to protect the infant and crippled King Mordred, heir to the recently deceased Uther Pendragon, Briton's high king. While admittedly anachronisms, the author includes familiar figures from the legend: Merlin, Galahad, and Excalibur, but Lancelot is a cowardly fraud and Guinevere is a shallow and witchy seductress who inadvertently leads the courageous but naive Arthur into war that never should have been.

While it may take a few chapters to get into the swing of medieval people and place names, this is soon a rousing and bloody tale of politics and war told from the horror of hand-to-hand combat across a shield wall, of sorcerers, witches, priests, and wizards offering sacrifices, curses, and prayers to whichever Gods may be listening at the time. In short, a realistic first chapter in Cornwell's trilogy of a truly tragic hero and the legend that, nearly fifteen centuries later, continues to captivate and fascinate.

5つ星のうち 5.0 A fresh take on a familiar story 2015/5/21
投稿者 Laurence R. Bachmann - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック Amazonで購入
Bernard Cornwell at his best is terrific. He has a wonderful ability to reimagine what is not merely familiar, but rather stale. The Arthurian Legend is a daunting task to recreate, but one definitely deserving of re-imagination. When Arthur, Guinevere and Lancelot devolve into a Lerner and Lowe musical, it's time for an extreme make over. To be clear: I really admire the author, but not without reservation. He can drag a three part story out to seven (see the Uthred/Alfred the Great series). Here, Cornwell actually benefits from the restrictions of the Arthurian legend, not being able to stray too far or natter on endlessly. The Arthurian Legend also benefits from him: Cornwell pares back the overly Romanticized shlock and focuses on actual events or on events as they might have actually been.

In The Winter King Arthur's not yet king. He has no knights and he's not yet fashioned a round table. Chaos reigns. The Romans are gone, Britannia has disintegrated into turf warfare and Celts, Picts, Anglos, Saxons and Danes are more gangsta than government. It is in this setting that one can imagine the yearning for security, calm and order. Knights of the Round Table are more wishful thinking than reality; Gawains and Percivals a projection of what you're looking for from the man in charge. The idea that an unfaithful wife can disrupt the natural order of society is Romance (and misogyny) in overdrive and has no place in this world. Cornwell makes us understand that legend and romance are born from a riotous reality and need for security.

Whether it's what you imagine, this telling of Arthurian legend is entirely plausible, very entertaining and well worth reading.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Outstanding Novel for Any Fan of Historical Fiction or Fantasy Fiction 2016/7/19
投稿者 Eric B. - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック Amazonで購入
Outstanding novel for any fan of military style historical fiction or fantasy fiction. Mr. Cornwell does a great job of molding the myth of Arthur into the history of the time. The novel has interesting complex characters with all of the alliances between the kingdoms of southern England. As the series title implies, it in a lot of ways tell the story of the dark ages warlords in the years after the Roman Empire withdrew and then fell. The battle scenes are fantastic. Any fan of Lord of the Rings or Game of Thrones should really enjoy this.

Best book that I have read in about two years. I would recommend the paperback as it has a really good middle ages map of England in the back of the Winter King. Wish it was in the front as I was through 60% of the book before I found it.

This was my first Cornwell novel, but I thought he was a great writer as well as a great storyteller.

My seventh or eighth book by this author. I almost stopped reading this book......I love historical fiction but am fully aware that King Arthur while possibly a real person is most likely a conglomeration of characters....

Just finished this book and will start book two today.

Well written, informative, (get a map of England) and fun to read. I say get a map because not being born in England my knowledge does not stretch to OLD name places in the British Isles.
