Sitting on my balcony one serene morning, sipping my chamomile tea, I dove into 1356 by Bernard Cornwell. As a 30-year-old woman, I have always been captivated by tales of chivalry, bravery, and battles that shaped history. While I’ve often read books of such genres, listening to it offers an entirely different experience.

From the beginning, Thomas’ character intrigued me. A man with a purpose that turned into an allegiance. The shifting motivations of Thomas, from a personal vendetta to serving the king, are fascinating. It’s a stark reminder of how, in our own lives, our goals and motivations evolve with time and circumstances.

Bernard Cornwell’s storytelling is, as always, impeccable. But what made this experience even more engrossing was the narration by Jack Hawkins. His voice, filled with depth and emotion, transported me right to the heart of the Battle of Poitiers. I could almost feel the tension, hear the clanging of swords, and the heartbeats of soldiers on the brink of shaping history.

However, what stood out for me in 1356 was how it weaved historical facts into the narrative. It’s like watching a tapestry of history unfold, thread by thread, with each chapter. At several moments, I found myself pausing, lost in thought, drawing parallels with modern times, reflecting on how history often repeats itself in subtle ways.

Finishing 1356 left me with a melange of feelings. An appreciation for the men who fought valiantly, a deeper understanding of history, and a renewed admiration for Bernard Cornwell’s storytelling prowess.
