I have not finished it yet, but it is well written and informative, however, it has obviously not been read before being published as so far I have found 4 spelling mistakes. I had to re-read sentences to see what the word meant. The words were actual words with1 letter incorrect, and because of that the sentence did not make sense. Obviously it was done by a spell-check not a human reader as they would have picked it up. If it had been a paper book I would have corrected it myself.
Having said all that, it is the first book I have read that is exclusively about Edward II, I always believed that Edward II was murdered in a most unpleasant manner, and this book, for me, sets the story straight. I must also confess that up to now I have read more about the War of the Roses and the Tudors.
To summarise, this book would be an excellent one for any reader, who like myself, is just beginning their journey into this period of English history.
