Another great story from Bernard Cornwell. Cornwell is the master of battle scenes and he brings the battle field to life in this book. I believe this is the first book that he had Sharpe ride in a Calvary charge; Cornwell made me feel as if I was on a horse in the charge! Frederick Davidson did a great job narrating the story. Sharpe wanted Colonel Leroux sword but I was disappointed that in the end he did not keep it or give it to Theresa. In the epilogue I enjoyed Cornwell's description of what the city and area is like today. I would love to take a trip to Portugal and Spain following battles of the French and British.

What did you love best about Sharpe's Sword?
Although the Sharpe books contain similar story lines, it's always worth the read to see how he and Sgt Harper escape from the most recent French threat. This book has a dispicable villain who gives Sharpe the opportunity to savor revenge as a "dish served cold".
What other book might you compare Sharpe's Sword to and why?
I think each Sharpe book is best compared to others in the series, and I like the manner in which the author ties the books together. I suggest that they be read in sequence so that the various recurring characters will fall easily into place in the reader's memory. If the reader enjoys Hornblower/Aubrey, I think this series will also provide enjoyable reading.
Which character – as performed by Frederick Davidson – was your favorite?
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes, but I try to make each of the Sharpe books last over a few days of driving to and from various destinations.
Any additional comments?
Although I have read reviews criticizing one or more of the performers in the Sharpe series, I have enjoyed the slightly different perspective that each one brings to the books.
