Heaven Help Us - Another Attorney Turned Novelist,
This review is from: Viking Warrior (The Strongbow Saga, Book 1) (Paperback)
Ever since John Grisham started enjoying success with his formulaic legal thrillers it seems that droves of attorneys have decided that they too can be novelists -- Judson Roberts appears to be the latest.
I am once again swimming against the tide with an unfavorable review, but I found this book to be very nearly unreadable. Perhaps it is intended for juvenile readers, but I think that even as a young teen I would have blanched at Mr Roberts' stilted prose; and as for his claim to be a descendant of the Viking chieftain who was the father of the Normans, well, after 1100 years -- some 44 generations -- anything is possible, but it's rather a fantastic claim, don't you think?
