Top Customer Reviews
At the beginning of the book, I quickly discovered that much of the book was factual, based on actual people who lived when the author said they did and did what she claims. So now, I could barely put the book down--I'm just a historical fiction junkie when the author goes to the trouble to bring the main characters to life--3-dimensionly and believably. Ms. Peek did just that and for the next 10 days I had to sneak in a chapter or two while still taking care of all my other duties and responsibilities as a husband, father, and grandfather.
The main thing I liked about Crusader King is that her two heroes are credible and highly likable. I couldn't help but root for them harder with each new page. Moreover, her villains left me seething with anger because from the beginning they posed huge problems for the main characters, and they became more and more hateful as the book progressed.
The book is a great read, and I highly recommend it for youth and adult readers. Not only is it entertaining, but it explains a lot about a part of history about which many of us have little or no understanding.
To quote some of my students:
"This book is AWESOME! Everyone said it was good, but I didn't think it would be THIS good!"
"I actually read for three hours straight and my head didn't even hurt." - (a "book-hater")
"Do you have any other books like Crusader King?"
"I don't know what to read next. After that, nothing else seems good."
"I read Crusader King three times this school year, and I'm already ready to read it again!"
"When is a copy of Crusader King going to be available? It's all everybody is talking about!"
I could go on and on, but I will just end by saying that Baldwin and Theo are unforgettable, and this book will be one that you will want to go back to and read to your children and grandchildren some day!
