The Shining Company by Rosemary Sutcliff
The Shining Company

Chris .T, April 5, 2007

When I finished reading the book The Shining Company by Rosemary Sutcliff all I could say was good riddance! This Book was, to say the least, awful. The voce was good, it was just dull. Although the story’s disruption sounds exciting and not dull at all. The book is the story of Prosper who finds a white hart. No sooner does Prosper find him than the prince comes to hunt the hart! Prosper opposes, and the prince is in awe because of his courage. So he invites him to join his father’s army as a shield bearer in the battle against the Saxons.

I think that this book is bad because with the acceptation of two fights this book is as unexciting as it gets. The action doesn’t build up and like a dead man’s heart monitor it mostly flat lined. The end left me wanting more.

This book, historically wise, is unknown it was adapted from the 600 AD poem The Goddodinn How ever the characters speak like people from the 1400’s!

This book should be re-titled The Cure for Insomnia. Bleck!
