's review

it was amazing

With a forensic approach to uncovering the facts, Matthew Lewis brings his literary style to relating Richard's story. By following the detail of his troubled boyhood, we begin to understand how the man who emerges from his brother's shadow might feel he has something to prove. Pious and chivalric, Richard could have earned his living as a lawyer if circumstance had not made him a warrior king.

Richard might have ruled for little more than two years but until his dying breath he fought with great courage against prejudice and treachery. Is this the definitive work on Richard III so far? I think it might be. Highly recommended.
