I would like to write a brief review of Bernard Cornwell's Azincourt. The narration is excellent and the characterization is strong. However, I found the writing to be a bit muddy at times, which almost prevented me from finishing it half-way through. It was that painful at times. The storytelling was so vivid and well done, though, that I am very glad I finished through to the end. I would recommend it to anyone who wants an engrossing story. My advice: stick through the sieges at Harfleur, as it gets better afterward.
