The White Company

Gelesen von Clive Catterall

(4,79 Sterne; 392 Bewertungen)

Set during the Hundred Years' War with France, The White Company tells the story of a young Saxon man who is learning what it is to be a knight. Raised by Cistercian Monks and rejected by a violent elder brother, Alleyn Edricson takes service with one of the foremost knights in the country. When Alleyn falls in love with the knight's daughter, he must prove himself to be a courageous and honourable knight before he can win her hand. Alleyn and his friends set forth with the other men-at-arms to join Prince Edward in Bordeaux, from where they will take part in the Prince's campaign into Spain. It is in Spain that Alleyn and others must prove themselves to be very valiant and hardy cavaliers. (Summary by Clive Catterall)

Knights, squires, archers and adventure

(5 Sterne)

I had always associated Sir Arthur Conan Doyle with Sherlock Holmes - so it was a pleasure to learn that he wrote historical fiction as well. This is a wonderful story - with adventures galore, sword fights, honor, cultural commentary, and plenty of humor sprinkled in. By my ten finger bones, but Clive Catterall does an excellent job reading the characters!

incredible story and reader

(5 Sterne)

I have listened to many books on librivox but the reader of this story was the best I have heard. His ability to use different voices for different characters was awesome. After listening to this book I purchased a hard copy of the book and will read it, or listen to it, again very soon. Well done reader and thank you for giving us listeners and incredible experience.

Carol

(5 Sterne)

This is one of the most exciting stories I've ever read. No wonder Doyle hated Sherlock. The research, time, and passionate energy he put into wring this was great, yet he wasn't appreciated for it like he was loved for writing the Sherlock Holms series.

WAR AND GLORY

(4,5 Sterne)

A rousing tale of knightly doings. This was not only a fun story, but Doyle gives us many vignettes of common everyday life in rural England where brigands and shysters abounded. The reading was great.

Full marks for The White Company

(5 Sterne)

Beautifully, nobly done. The narrator does full justice to the author and his text. Would that more writers and readers would aspire to these literary heights in our day.

Great book and reader

(4,5 Sterne)

incredible book and I'll listen to this author again even if he is reading tea leaves.
