A BBC Radio 4 full cast dramatisation of Rosemary Sutcliff’s much loved tale of honour comradeship and courage Somewhere around the year 117AD a Roman garrison called the Ninth Legion was ordered to

The Shield Ring but they were still excellent uality I m basically writing down my slightly lessened enjoyment to the fact that Sutcliff is working to create a different visual ATMOSPHERE in this

Back the symbol of the lost legion’s honour their standard the Eagle of the Ninth Now adapted as a major motion picture ‘The Eagle’ starring Channing Tatum Jamie Bell and Donald Sutherland ‘The Eagle of the Ninth’ is a timeless tale that will thrill all listeners This recording was previously available on cassette Rating Clarification 45 StarsMy first Rosemary Sutcliff book but it will not be my last This tale of Roman Britain and the lost Ninth Legion brings the reader into a fully imagined yet realistic world in which honor and duty are sacrosanct and the meeting of two cultures can be either a time of mutual respect or bloody conflict and distrust Sutcliff is one darn brilliant writer of characters and settings I could fully picture the time period the people and the atmosphere It rang true and nothing seemed out of sync or out of periodOverall it did surprise me how good this book was I mean exceptionally good I don t think I ve enjoyed a YA novel since Suzanne Collins The Hunger Games there are no similarities between the two books except that both are well written and hard to put downAlthough written primarily for a YA audience back in the mid 1950 s Sutcliff doesn t hesitate to challenge her readers with terms and phrases they might not understand heck who am I kidding it was a challenge for me at times Very probably young readers of the 50 s were well read and grounded in history then I wasThis is a story I wouldn t hesitate to recommend to young and old alike Although boys might find a greater appreciation for the story I feel it crosses age and gender lines as wellAnd imagine my surprise and delight to find that the 2011 movie The Eagle is based on this novel Now I ve got to go put this on my Netflix ueue to see if the film makers did the book justice Probably not but hey Jamie Bell is in it
