IMO, this guy is the king of historical fiction. For those who don't know of his works, what Ruterfurd does it chronicle civilizations from their beginnings and expands many gneerations. Mixed with this are fictional stories taking place in the time span of his novels. His books are leviathans, generally weighing in at 700-1000+ pages, but fear not, their great reads. IMO, his best works in order are: Sarum, London, The Dublin Saga (Princes and Rebels of Ireland), Russka, and The Forrest. Not to say any are bad, not at all. All his works are unbeatable.
Any one else here read Rutherfurd?
