I met Randall Wright at locally sponsored book signing. I had many questions, but he kindly took the time to talk about himself, his book, and other things which I appreciated. I bought the signed book for my 11 year old boy for Christmas, but as I typically do, I "borrowed" the book so I could read it myself. I like to do that with most of the books I get for the kids, especially if it falls within one of my favorite genres.It is a rare book that causes me to have to get out a dictionary, and m [...]
I definitely enjoyed this, it was interesting, and well written. The characters were developed well, and it was a sweet story. Hodge, the main character, is a courageous, sweet, and wonderful character who I love, and the bond between him and his brother Fleet is very sweet. The prince was a little confusing, though, because he wasn't necessarily a "good guy", actually quite the opposite, but until you know that, you actually like him, so it's dissapointing when you find out he's not as honorabl [...]
Hodge has always dreamed of serving royalty. Instead, the young hunchbacked teen is the lowest of the servants. He mucks out latrines, ovens and stalls. When Prince Leo arrives at Hodge's keep everything changes and Hodge discovers that getting what you want isn't always the best thing. I found the story depressing and was a little unclear on why it mattered that Hodge was a hunchback because it didn't seem to cause him any problems and gave him advantages in some instances but those advantages [...]
Hodge has always dreamed of serving a prince, just like in the stories. But no one comes to Castle Marlby anymore, and who would let a hunchback serve a prince? His brother Fleet doesn't believe in him either. But one day a prince does come, but he seems to be a prisoner. Hodge befriends him when he delivers his meals, and helps the prince escape. But life isn't a story, and things don't go acording to plan. Hodge must choose his path . . .
I loved the setting of this novel and the twists and turns it took. The author seemed to have a good grasp of the medieval time period which helped to enhance the story. It dragged a bit in places and the ending felt rushed but it kept me interested and wanting to know what happened to the characters after the book ended.
What a charming story about midevil times. Don't let the title sway you and think Notre Dame. I couldn't put it down. It ended kind of abruptly and therefore I wish he would write sequel. A woman in my ward named Fae. Her son wrote the book.
I wasn't going to bother with this book because it was disappointing that it wasn't the hunchback of notre dame but I liked this story even better it was so wonderful I'd recommend this book to anyone it was so sweet and wonderful I was crying with happiness and despair all at the same time.
A light forgettable tale of knights and commoners. The only item of note is that the hero is a young man named Hodge.
