In recent years I've started reading some of his novels. Which novels have people preferred and would you recommend any in particular? Is Sharpe good enough to read? I checked on search and there doesn't seem to have been a thread for his work.
I've recently read 'Fallen Angels' which was different to the other books I've read as it's not primarily about medieval battles, being a little more domestic in content. I found it enjoyable a read, probably my favourite of his, with my girlier side coming out what with suitors for the main female character. I've also read 'Azincourt', set a long time before the former novel. That too was fairly enjoyable, because there was more of a story built around it rather than just the battle. I find long battles scenes in books and films tedious so I definitely approve of bulking out a situation with personalised situations.
The first novel I read of his two years ago was Harlequin. I quite liked it but didn't keep it. Now I see it was part of a set, so perhaps I should have read the next one.(? ) I also have 'The Winter King' and the other two books of a trilogy ready to read, and 'The Burning Land'.
So, as above, I'm interested in any recommendations and also any discussion of what members think of his books in general.
