    Count Robert of Paris ePUB ¸ Count RoberteBook count book, robert epub, paris pdf, Count Robert mobile, Count Robert of Paris PDFEPUBLike The Talisman this novel is set during the Crusades in the Middle East However unlike that earlier novel in the Waverley series this one is uite disjointed and unclear as to the real narrative story In other words I found it the last one in my 36 volume set of these works one of the weakest of all the novels in this seriesThe main character Count Robert doesn't even appear until roughly 275pp into the 650pp story Then his first action is to brazenly upstage the Emperor of Constantinople Alexius Comnenus Such boorish behavior was hard to understand given his oft mentioned fealty to the codes of chivalry and honor The real hero of the story appears to be Hereward a Varangian mercenary in the service of the eastern Emperor referred to as 'Greeks' although they refer to themselves as 'Romans' having been descended from the Romans of antiuity after Constantine moved the seat of emp

    Count Robert of Paris ePUB ¸ Count RoberteBook count book, robert epub, paris pdf, Count Robert mobile, Count Robert of Paris PDFEPUBAmong the least popular of Scott's novels and the penultimate in the Waverley novels An enjoyable read that takes us back to the first crusade and the clash between two very different cultures the very old sophisticated but decadent Byzantine Empire with its plots and power struggles and Greek inheritance vs the French crusaders that are borderline brutish fanatics but aspire to higher ideals and are infused with chivalry and courage At the centre an Anglo Saxon hero of the famed Varangian guard that bridges those two Worlds somehow The plot if somehow predictable is agreeable and fluid with small twists and surprises It is

    Count Robert of Paris ePUB ¸ Count RoberteBook count book, robert epub, paris pdf, Count Robert mobile, Count Robert of Paris PDFEPUBThe year is 1080 Alexius emperor of Constantinople has to deal with unruly crusaders crossing his land and treachery from his own inner circle One of the crusaders is the impetuous Count Robert who travels with his ian wife Brenhilda and her servant Bertha long lost love of Hereward a loyal Varangian guard When Robert and Brenhilda are kidnapped as part of local political intrigues Robert and Hereward natural enemies are thrown togetherSo much happens in this novel that it is hard to encapsulate it The real life biographer Anna Comnena walks alongside an almost human orang utan who kills or saves people depending on the circumstances a mechanical lion a real tiger horses being ridden backwards an evil philosopher a resurrected political opponent and lots and lots of really attractive people This novel is one of the last things written by Sir Walter Scott The dense prose and

    Count Robert of Paris ePUB ¸ Count RoberteBook count book, robert epub, paris pdf, Count Robert mobile, Count Robert of Paris PDFEPUBPretty goodIn my opinion this is not Scott's best work There are some fun aspects of the story and the characters but it's not uite as good as some of his other novels It definitely has a different feel to it than most of his books and the subject matter and setting ate certainly a departure from so many of his adventures set in the Scottish highlands
