Okay this is an impressive encyclopaedia however first of all I will have to admit that I have been dipping in and out of this book for some YEARS That said after the infamous restructuring and reorganising of my books I thought I should close off a few of these titles that have been linger for far too long.The TV series yes I will put my hand up to that I got in to the world of Ellis Peters Brother Cadfael thanks to the amazing Derek Jacobi captivated my attention and drove me to explore the bo [...]

The book has some wonderful drawings but does not contain the historical knowledge and archaic speech that I was looking for It is excellent for referencing particular characters in the individual stories but that is about it.
I ve read and enjoyed only one of the Cadfael books, so I got this compendium mostly because it s such a pretty book Hopefully I ll appreciate it even as I find and read of the series
Skimmed it.Not what I was expecting or hoping for Not a bad reference book if you re looking for encyclopedic references of the Cadfael Chronicles A Z However, I was looking for of a coffee table book filled with tid bits and factoids and glossy, lush colored photos.Will not rate because it it is good for what it is just not what I was looking for.
Choice of fonts makes it difficult to enjoy Difficult to figure out what the letters are Was also hoping for pronunciation guides.
An awesome, and very thorough, companion and guide to this lovely series.
