I enjoyed the book although I thought the main point of view character, William de Hauteville, could have been drawn with a bit more emotion - I didn't think his motivation was just fighting and money. Also, knowing some of the history of the time, I thought the timing of various events was a little off, but the book omits references to the years of the occurrences, so I wasn't sure until I checked. However, the author's note at the end mentioned that he knew he was doing it, and did it for dramatic emphasis. That wasn't something I would do, but at least he knew he was doing it. Most readers would probably not realize it and just enjoy the story.
