    One thought on “The Viking”

    1. I've been on a kick of searching out old historical fiction books from my local thrift stores. Who can argue with a quarter? Anyways, I'm a fan of history channel's series Vikings and I found this book. Flipping through it there are many of the same names and it was written in first person perspective. So needless to say I was super stoked to read this. Ogier Gyrfalcon is our main character. In Part One, Ogier wins his freedom and sets out to face his destiny; whatever it may be. Freeing a Chris [...]

    3. The tale of two half-brothers (one Saxon/Viking and the other Viking) and their vociferous father, Ragnar bursts across the pages of this novel. They are loud, brave and driven by different reasons. They are destined to clash and they do. This book has it all: love, action, betrayal, bravery and myth. This is one of my all-time favorite historical fiction novels and among the first i read.

    4. "They do not write them this way, these days" would be my first thought.A very good story told in a very special way.May be the way the "so called" barbarians lived back then is very similar to the way corporate slaves live today. This way or that a very solid book, very much fun to read.

    5. Read in 1963 according to my diary for that year. Alas, no rating or comments listed. I was really into reading movie tie-ins in those years so this was prompted by seeing the Tony Curtis/ Kirk Douglas film, perhaps on TV as the movie was from 1958.

    6. Enjoyed the book mainly because I like the Viking lore but I thought it was well written and I did not predict the ending. That is always a big bonus!
