Free download A Hollow Crown: The Story of Emma, Queen of Saxon England Helen Hollick ã 4 Read Read & Download A Hollow Crown: The Story of Emma, ueen of Saxon England Ü PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook USA Today Bestseller What kind of woman becomes the wife of two kings and the mother of two Saxon England 1002 Not only is Æthelred a failure as King but his young bride Emma of Normandy soon discovers he is even worse as a husband When the Danish Vikings led by Swein Forkbeard and his son Cnut cause a maelstrom of chaos Emma as ueen must take control if the Kingdom and her crown are to be salvaged Smarter than history remembers and stronger than the foreign invaders who threaten England's shores Emma risks everything on a gamble that could. English is my first language so I have certain expectations that books written in English might be grammatically correct The grammatical lapses in the book make reading it jarring There is also lots of bad writing For example some of the risibly memorable items I read aloud to my husbandhung like a stone the option of choice a mixture of displeasure This book should have had an editor I remember one sentence Money gives way to prejudice I m pretty sure the author meant Prejudice gives way to money Or perhaps Money sweeps away prejudiceGrammar and bad writing aside a book could still be a darn good read but you can t really call this book a novel either The characters are one dimensional and most of the book is telling and not showing I ll grant that the book is historical Unfortunately its jsut not a rippingly good read The main character Emma doesn t do a whole lot and the author ducks the non historical stuff In the book we are to suppose that Emma falls in love with Cnut and he with her but we don t see it happen we are just told it did Similarly no sex Lots of babies but no sex scenes If you don t know much about this period of history you might enjoy wading through this book but I think you will forget everything in it except some of the examples of bad writing
