This is a big book as suits a novel with the title of such a massive structure --- Stonehenge. I had been looking forward to reading this book for a long time --- it, unlike those of Cornwell's other works set in more recent history --- could have been --- and is --- relatively unrestricted by historical fact. This permits Cornwell much greater creative reign.
But after having read a sampling of Cornwell's other books --- those set in Arthurian England and those set at the turn-of-the-sixteenth century --- I reluctantly confess at being somewhat disappointed by this novel. For my liking there's too much liturgy and not enough action --- this book does "keep me hanging" --- but not in suspense --- rather with the hope that the story will finally get going --- and sometimes I think it really doesn't. I found this book almost tedious in parts. But then it's hard to live up to the advance billing conferred by such a mighty title.
I think I'll have to move on to some other Cornwell --- some with a little more swashbuckling.
