    PaperbackÜ The Forest Epub ´ forest ebok, The Forest eBook ''Even the forest grows new oaks'' When I see a book by Edward Rutherfurd the effects are the same as when I see a creation by Ken Follett I believe that most die hard lovers of Historical Fiction have placed these two writers on a high pedestal Rutherfurd's books aren't heavy on the romance element like Follett's and this is a significant plus for me So it was with great enthusiasm that I started reading The Forest and I was not disappointedBut why did Rutherfurd choose to write about the Forest Well The New Forest in the county of Hampshire is a place steeped in history and folklore It is the largest ancient forest in England and therefore it stands as an everlasting witness to many crucial moments in British History Prince Richard and William II the sons of Wil

    PaperbackÜ The Forest Epub ´ forest ebok, The Forest eBookThe format of this book is like all of Rutherford's others historical fiction This story takes place in a location that is very near Sarum the subject of his int'l best selling breakout book but its emphasis is much different the focus is on how the forest in this area affects the people that live there and vice versa You get wafts of the big events eg ueen Elizabeth and her Golden Age the Spanish inuisition but everyday details concern how deers and oak trees mature I love Rutherford's books I always learn something and although the characters change in each chapter there's aspects of each one that I can connect with as a reader I don't think this is Rutherford's best book hence the 4 stars but it was good enough to compel me to read London sometime soon

    PaperbackÜ The Forest Epub ´ forest ebok, The Forest eBook The Forest stars England's New Forest over a thousand years of development I read it back in 2005 and still remember much of the plot today; in other words it's a story that stays in a reader's mind Through everyday conflicts in his characters lives fighting over a lover family disputes making enough money to feed yourself living under corrupt leaders Rutherfurd wrote culture and history with a human element It's fascinating to think of the sheer number of people who have lived and died before this generation like us and yet not because of cultural and technological differencesI loved how well he wrote these women; very few writers grasp the opposite gender The women of The Forest believe they should be submissive
