A rollicking good time, filled with plots that mesh with the Biblical story, and that's on purpose, I'm sure. This trilogy gets you to love righteousness. My 8 year old son was cheering for Henry at the end, rejoicing at the demise of the witch, and at the courage and strength of Henry and his family. An excellent Shakespearean twist at the end.
I was expecting the Richard character to develop more, but in the end he was mere comedy relief - a little disappointing. Some of the evil depicted was intense, but it wasn't overdone or gratuitous. Overall, highly recommended. Get it here.
