Wonderful Wednesdays #6 (Historical Fiction)
This weeks theme is historical fiction.
Which stories set in the past do you really love? This one was a tough one for me because lots of my favourite historical fiction I have reviewed recently (Shanghai Girls, Remarkable Creatures, The Mistress of Nothing, The Sandalwood Tree). In the end I decided to go with a book I first read in my teens. There have been controversies over whether or not it is a fiction book at all, being based on extensive research, but I decided in the end that if the Booker committee think it's fiction, then that's good enough for me.
If you've not read it, I do recommend it. The film is good, but nowhere near as good as the book.
How about you?
I want to hear all about your favourite pieces of historical fiction. Grab the image above, make a blog post and then sign up to the linky below so we can all hop between blogs. Thanks to those that do take part.
