    [PDF] Tombland (The Shardlake Series, 7) I'm not going to lie. This was a monster of a book even for me. A tomb of a read ironically at over 840 pages. But do you know what? It's CJ Sansom and the time passed quickly as I was sucked into a medieval world of intrigue and murder.

    There’s a lot to enjoy here, and not just with the plot. Around you as you read, there are batt

It starts off as a mystery handed to Shardlake by the Lady Elizabeth, not yet even close to becoming queen. It is a task fraught with danger to both, taken on with trepidation. So far so good but then the mystery gets lost, occasionally resurrected in a few side pages, so that we can get to

    [PDF] Tombland (The Shardlake Series, 7) The wait for the next book in the Shardlake series has been well worth it. This is a real blockbuster and C J Sansom, for my money, is a truly superb storyteller. It just doesn't get any better!

    England's monarchy is at a crossroads following the death of Henry VIII; the country is bankrupt, the regent prince Edward is being manipulated by various nobles, all of whom are keen to gain power. There's constant plo

    [PDF] Tombland (The Shardlake Series, 7) When authors become super successful I suspect that they become harder to edit at the same time
    This starts very well but then gets bogged down in bringing a historical event to life so that the plot thread, such as it is, gets buried in the midst of minutely detailed recreation. It’s this that makes this one not as good as the ones before I suspect that this is the longest Shardlake novel but it’s the one with

    [PDF] Tombland (The Shardlake Series, 7) I have been following Shardlake through each and every novel written so far. The writer is good at recreating the atmosphere of the age. The pursuit of a case is thorough and it keeps the reader going.

    review Tombland (The Shardlake Series, 7) C.J. Sansom å 3 read [PDF] Tombland (The Shardlake Series, 7) 600+ pages of utter boredom.
    Paper thin murder plot buried under a forest stripping pulp of irrelevant historical "research".
    As Shardlake himself might have said, " I've a hunch my time's up!"

I m a fan of the Shardlake series but this one was a slog As other reviewers have noted the section the very large section of the book that takes place in the camp is excruciatingly dull and seems to go on forever There is also a tiresome abundance of psychopaths a pair of murderous twins a deranged homicidal grandfather a coldly murderous schemer a yeoman with a disproportionate and violent grudge plus the usual loathesome selfishness and entitlement from the privileged classes And psychopaths tend to make such dull two dimensional characters one is bore but five or are really hard to takeThat said I really liked the author s depiction of how pervasive and cult like the support for the class system was at the time It s been an ongoing theme of the series and was even central here The class system wasn t just some random historical contingency it was an ideology that was actively reinforced and viciously defended by the elites even by the principled and kindly elites

review Tombland (The Shardlake Series, 7) Tombland (The Shardlake Series, 7) review ✓ 3 Er daughter the lady Elizabeth The gruesome murder of one of Elizabeth's distant relations rud to be politically murdered draws Shardlake and his companion Nicholas to the lady's summer estate where a second murder is committedAs the kingdom explodes into rebellion Nicholas is imprisoned for his loyalty and Shardlake must decide where his loyalties lie with his kingdom or with his lady. The wait for the next book in the Shardlake series has been well worth it This is a real blockbuster and C J Sansom for my money is a truly superb storyteller It just doesn t get any betterEngland s monarchy is at a crossroads following the death of Henry VIII the country is bankrupt the regent prince Edward is being manipulated by various nobles all of whom are keen to gain power There s constant plotting and intrigue to discredit individuals including the young Princess Elizabeth The political and religious divides are causing uncertainty and deep fear at every level Currency has been debased there s growing civil unrest as common land is enclosed by the nobility and people struggle to surviveShardlake encounters his old enemy Richard Rich who is ever hopeful that he can find an excuse to send him to the Tower again Shardlake is sent to Norfolk where the death of John Boleyn s wife may bring discredit to the Boleyn s and Lady Elizabeth Once in Norwich he meets up with his old friend and assistant John Barak and one intrigue after another is uncovered then the body count starts to riseThe plotting is complex but utterly believable It s good to meet up with characters from previous novels they re all so convincing But what s really amazing is the historical context in which these books are set This time it s a peasant revolt known as Kett s Rebellion I knew nothing about this episode but with his usual understated panache Sansom brings events vividly to life Loyalties are divided tension builds and I felt like a spectator involved in and watching as evens unfold There s not a wasted word and even though this is a large book it s never paddedTombland works well as a standalone Recurring characters are introduced with some background for those unfamiliar with their early stories The book works well at so many levels It s a twisted and compelling murder mystery I find Shardkake an endearing and intelligent protagonist Even when his moral compass is challenged he remains balanced and persuasive in his views Over the series his character has developed along with his personal relationships with others Whether it s a former servant an apothecary nobility or his friend Barak each book takes them all a little further on their personal journeys As historical fiction Sansom really brings both the period and people to life The political machinations and duplicity are complex but again individuals like Somerset the Boleyns the young Elizabeth and her Court feel real and play such a believable part in the story There s genuine atmosphere and context and plenty of tensionWhat a wonderful way to bring history to life There is no one who writes better about the Tudor period and Tombland is possibly the best of the seriesso far Absolutely captivated from start to finish and I can t recommend this book highly enough
