Birth of the Kingdom Jan Guillou. Arn de Gotha has become one of the most feared warriors of the Knights Templar fighting to liberate Palestine with the Crusaders. At the great battle for Jerusalem, a mammoth and bloody struggle where the Christians were finally defeated, Arn is saved from certain death by Saladin, his longtime enemy. Ravaged by wounds and sickness, Arn is at last granted his wish: to return at last to his homeland, it plagued by endless wars

Birth of the Kingdom book. On top of it all, you get a feeling that Jan is not really trying.

Birth of the Kingdom book. No character building, some big events are just passed over like an afterthought, dialogues are terrible if there are any. Just don't read this book.

This is the 3rd book in the series. I enjoyed all of them. The story is engaging, the historic sweep reasonably convincing. Ideal for a long flight or one of those occasions where you just want to be pulled into the story without having to exert too much mental energy. Where I found it disappointing is that the central character, Arn, is just so damned perfect - and therefore regrettably not terribly plausible. The pure warrior monk who is chaste for 20+ years waiting for his beloved (without so much as even one impure thought - very likely). More of zen warrior trained in martial arts than a knight in armour, no one can even come close to besting him on the battle field - even if they are behind him apparently. Is there nothing he cannot achieve? From introducing manufacturing and modern medicine to Sweden to saving the kingdom from frequent invasion almost single handedly. Well, its all good clean stuff, written in heroic style, presumably to provide some sort of founding myth for the kingdom of Sweden. But is it great literature - or even great pulp fiction?

It was a great way to finish the trilogy I enjoyed how they built a life together after an already full life. At times I skimmed through the descriptive detail of their lives to get back to the story.

This book is excellent! The writing is concise, but beautifully descriptive, the plot well laid out, the characters very believable. Having read the first two in the series, I was eager to read the third. I was not disappointed.

Have read all 3 books and it was one of the best. A must read.

I absolutely loved the first 2books in the trilogy but was disappointed with the 3rd. The language felt simplified and the content rushed.

This is the third volume of the trilogy that started with the Road to Jerusalem. (Which I did not review but would have given 5 stars if I had). It is the longest and the least enjoyable of the three. (My wife got me a birthday present from Amazon.co.uk where this was released in March)

What can I say? Arn Magnusson makes it back from the holy land with a motley crew of Saracens, Franks and others who are bound by oath to serve him for five years. Arn uses their skills to help him achieve two goals. The first is building an invincible fortress for the Folking clan and the second is building a new church.

Basically, this volume wraps up the whole Folgung-Erik saga. Arn gets back with Cecilia Algotsdotter of course. And Arn works to build security of the eventual kindom of Sweden. But this is all done at painful length without any of the bright dialog. action and pacing of the first novel. Most of the real action comes in the last 50 pages (of almost 600) as the author ties up the real history with the battle of Lena and its aftermath.

There is no way I can give this more than three stars as it almost feels as if a different author wrote this ponderous tome.

Jan Guillou writes an great story with Arn. It rivals that of those written by Robyn Young or Jack Whyte (sp?)

My only issue is Arn seems to be able to do no wrong, his foriegn trips have made him a jack of all knowledge.

Still it helped explain some things I didn't understand in the Swedish movies.
the book i ordered arriced within 7 days, it was done easily on line. service was fast and efficient. so easy B A Tune
