Braveheart is about the myth of a man named William Wallace, who fights for Scotland's freedom against England in the late 1200s. Does the man succeed?

I liked the story very much. I could see it clearly in front of me; every moment of William Wallace's epic story. Characters were described very well, they seemed very realistic. The only negative thing in the book was the few too short chapters, they really bu ...more

The reason I gave this book any stars at all, is because I am intrigued with that time period in history. The reason I deducted four stars was due to the ridiculous amount of typos in my e-book. There were one or more errors on each page! How can any editor let this happen? In ...more
I think I'll watch the movie again.
unfortunately...the book SUCKED!
