    The Eagle and the Raven Read & Download ¸ 4 The Eagle and the Raven All we wanted was to be left alone This is a book that needs to be read slowly Come to it with a clear mind Yes it is full of difficult names and different tribes Leaders of both sides come and go all realistic characters that tell stories of a far away time but carry a message that never becomes old The desire of everyone of us to be free free in every way regardless of religion ethnicity financial status etc Yes we all live together sharing our Earth but this doesn't mean that the few can dictate a way of life to be shared by all to obey blindly Where is the freedom of choice we all desire Is it a given

    The Eagle and the Raven Read & Download ¸ 4 The Eagle and the RavenI normally avoid historicals if they contain the words sweeping or three generations but this book deserves both without irony It tells the story of the Roman invasion of Britain first opposed by the less well known Caradoc whose guerilla tactics might have been successful if he'd had better luck and followed by the revolt of the better known Boudicca The characters are complex and moving the battle scenes wrenching and the history meticulous Caradoc is a moving hero a man determined to burn himself inside and out if it will save his people and Boudicca is majestic and tragic as the vengeful mother to both her own wronged child

    The Eagle and the Raven Read & Download ¸ 4 The Eagle and the RavenOne of my managers at the bookstore recommended this book to me I had no idea who Pauline Gedge was and when I did my research I just found a mediocre wikipedia entry; normally I wouldn't go for a complete unknown author but a book about Celtic Historical Fiction is sort of hard to disregardWell to my delight the Eagle and the Raven turned out to be extraordinary Pauline Gedge may not be a certified historian but she's got her facts straight Moreover the way she writes this book is so incredibly smooth the story is fast paced and her narration is very precise which normally doesn't leave room for that poetic tone that softens tragic events battles or dramatic situations; however Pauline pulls it off wi

    The Eagle and the Raven Read & Download ¸ 4 The Eagle and the RavenThe theme of the book was freedom of the Britons in the face of Roman invasion and occupation of Britain I liked that the Roman invasion of Britain was presented from the British tribes' points of view for a change I saw how they possibly would have interacted got a feel for some of their culture and sympathized completely with them After many years Caradoc asks Plautius the two have become friends How would you feel if this country Rome lay under the rule of

    The Eagle and the Raven Read & Download ¸ 4 The Eagle and the Ravenrating 25Finally finished sigh of relief My take on this novel is complicated outweighed by the negativeMaybe I came in with too many expectations knowing it would be about Caradoc and Boudicca I was expecting guerilla resistance battles struggles of a people against a domineering invading empire all the stuff that usually gets my literary blood pumping It did provide that in some form but it just didn't work for meOverall it was long and over descriptive except when portraying battles scenes those were short and glazed over There were many lengthy descriptions of the scenery and landscape over detailed depictions of mundane everyday life and long winded speeches Granted it contained a lot of great cultural information and portrayal of Celtic life I learned a lot; I just didn't care for her writing style My disappointment extended into the depictions of politics and military campaigns Most of the effort was put forth to give us the historical events on a silver platter with ea

    The Eagle and the Raven Read & Download ¸ 4 The Eagle and the RavenDo you think that when the time comes they will let us be burned on some funeral pyre taken from the sweet Catuvellaunian forests she whispered All we wanted was to be left alone he said uietly such a little word freedom such a small reuest and yet it has consumed the soul of a people Far away in the swirling autumn mists of Albion the light of freedom flickeredIf I could give this book than 5 stars I would do so gladly The Eagle and the Raven is a magnificent book Well written and well researched There is nothing about this book that is lacking It starts in the Autumn of AD 32 with a young Caradoc the future leader of the Celtic revolt against the tyranny of Rome and continues through Autumn AD 59; to the fall of Boudicca I write this review with tears in my eyes tears of

    The Eagle and the Raven Read & Download ¸ 4 The Eagle and the RavenWhat an amazing amazing book Pauline Gedge manages to recreate a pre Roman England Albion that feels so alive and so real which is a skill that few historical fiction writers have particularly in a setting so far removed from us today The story she creates is fast moving keeping me glued to the pages but she still has a way of packing an emotional punch – I was in tears by the last pagesI was expecting the story to be focused on Boudicca based on the book cover but I don't necessarily feel that's a negative – the scope is far larger and ends up giving a complete story about the resistance to Rome In some ways I didn't feel

    The Eagle and the Raven Read & Download ¸ 4 The Eagle and the Raven “Vercingetorix went to Rome in chains and so will you” This was a very nostalgic re read for me as I first read this book as a child and it was the book in fact that introduced me to the author Pauline Gedge Gedge freuently writes in ancient Egypt but her one foray into Romano Celtic Britain is utterly enrapturingThe book is marketed as a tale of Boudicca but it really isn’t Boudicca’s story comes into its own towards the end but for much of the book it is a slow burning second strand to the struggles of Catuvellaunian chieftain Caradoc Caradoc is much lesser known than Boudicca but he did exist – recorded by the
