Sir Nigel

Gelesen von Clive Catterall

(4,798 Sterne; 299 Bewertungen)

By 1348 the House of Loring has fallen on hard times. Together, the Black Death and the greedy monks of Waverley have bled away all of the Loring wealth. Even the manor house will have to go to pay their debts. Then a chance encounter with the King of England provides Nigel, the last of the Lorings, with the chance to seek his fortune in the constant wars with France. But more importantly for Nigel it also means that he may be able to do the "three small deeds" that will show he is worthy to ask for the hand of the Lady Mary in marriage. Filled with chivalry, humour, and high romance, Sir Nigel is simply a rattling good yarn. (Summary by Clive Catterall) (12 hr 7 min)

Sir Nigel

(5 Sterne)

Excellent book and the reading was simply wonderful. A time for us dreamers, history lovers, a time long gone. Not a better time, just different. A truly superb story, I recommend it to anyone who loves history, the good and the bad. I know I will listen to this story and it's sequel, The White Company, many times again. Thank you for such a wonderful treat!

(5 Sterne)

An excellent story with an excellent reader. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle manages to bring the era to life through the use of language, real people, and real events added to the life of his character. There are grim deeds and occasionally a too descriptive passage, but these can be skipped over, and the bloodiness of the story is usually softened by the gallantry and chivalry of the characters.

Good story, if a bit confusing

(5 Sterne)

I enjoyed this bit of adventure. Sir Nigel does many great deeds and survives where others would have perished. Some of the battles were a bit confusing to me, but otherwise I enjoyed the tale. Reader is excellent, thanks Clive! :-)

AUTHOR! STORREADER --ALL SUPERLATIVE

(5 Sterne)

A tale of chivalry as it was meant to be. Doyle aleays relates his stories in informative and entertainig fashion. Clive Catterall delivers his usual clear reading. The only complaint could be that the volume overall was just a bit too soft.

The exploits of a young wanna be knight! if factual the life style was bu built on blood & gore surrounded by piety & chivalry! Great story with characters developing with their narration and enhanced by reader!

what a wonderful read. SACD was a gifted historical writer. My regret is he didn't pursue it more. Excellently read with so much character by Clive Cattrall. His efforts adding to the mental picture Doyle paints.

(5 Sterne)

Great "read". Thoroughly enjoyed listening to it. I didn't want it to end! Be sure to listen to the sequel, The White Company, read by the same person, who did an excellent job on both.

(5 Sterne)

I hate sequels. more than that, I despise prequels. That said, this equals THE WHITE COMPANY in every way. I could not have asked for a more pleasant way to spend a day.
