Although this is not one of my favorite Robert Hugh Benson books, it is, as usual, a wonderful story.

Benson does such a good job with character development and weaving the story.

Format: Paperback
This fifth and last novel by Benson re the English monarchy did not measure up to the other four, all of which are superb. Oddsfish seems tired or tiresome, and it was difficult to care much what happens to any of the characters. To those who have read and loved any of the other four in the series as I have, I would say skip Oddsfish.

This is probably the best laid-out and plotted book of Benson's. For a tale of the 17th century, it's got all the "modern" elements of tension and suspense. If it was a "real" book I'd say it was quite a page turner....I guess for the Kindle edition it would have to be a screen-tapper or something like that.

Format: Hardcover
Another excellent novel by Robert Hugh Benson. Covers one of the periods of anti-Catholic hysteria in England. Set near the end of the reign of Charles II. Evidently old hatreds never die - it was recently noted that still no Catholic may be king and/or be married to a Catholic. This novel seems to be very accurate historically and is well done.

I disagree with the Oregon reviewer.This is a fine book and gives insight into the real hatred of the Catholic Faith rampant in the English Royalty. God Bless King Charles II .

I discovered Lord of the World a couple years ago, was amazed, and decided to see what else this author wrote. Benson is clear and creative in this work, which clearly is not as traumatic as his better-know works. Roman, religion and intrigue make for an engaging and entertaining read.

This is another splendid book carefully crafted by Fr. Benson, and as another reviewer put it, a real "screen tapper"! This was my fourth Benson novel, and all of them don't just engage, they grab. I liked that this novel is written as a first person narrative, as it gives us all of the main character Roger Mallock, with his youthful doubts, dreams, follies and ideals. He is likeable and wholly believable, a complicated mix of man of action and aesthete. But what shines forth most brightly is Roger's capacity to love, even, and especially, when it is undeserved. But don't think that the above comes at the expense of action--no! There is plenty of suspense, intrigue, tragedy and thrills. Curl up with a cuppa and enjoy the ride.
