    1. Book Blast on said:

      What is instantly clear about Michael Kramer s novel, For the Love of Armin, is the amount of work and research he has put into it He has used as much historical fact as he can, and used them to create realistic characters, that were appropriate to the time period of the Roman Empire His ability to combine fact and fiction is brilliant, as was his ability to set such dramatic scenes with epic action and bloodshed Set in the early years following the birth of Christ, we start the book as the Roma [...]

    2. Bookish Picks on said:

      Michael Kramer evidently put a huge amount of work into researching this historical fiction For the Love of Armin is crammed full of historical facts and extrapolations based on fact The novel is narrated by the ghost of an ancient Germanic warrior, although large sections slip into a didactic encyclopedia style These changes of pace makes the text feel slightly disjointed, but at the same time each section is easy to read, understand and follow This is Kramer s second novel his first being abo [...]

    4. Luxurious Literature on said:

      In recent years I have developed a real fondness for historical fiction, becoming hooked after reading Wolf Hall by Hillary Mantel An interest in the Roman Empire led me to For the Love of Armin by Michael Kramer, and what followed was a novel that easily matches Mantel s for accuracy, writing skill, and ability to weave historical facts into a compelling narrative Told through the eyes of an ancient Germanic spirit, we follow the aftermath of the Battle of the Tuetoburg Forest, a devastating de [...]

    5. Biblio Fish on said:

      2017 was a year that I promised myself that I would look beyond thriller and horror when choosing my next read Historical fiction is something I usually avoid, so I decided to try For the Love of Armin by Michael Kramer, which is set in 9AD during the Roman Empire It seemed appropriate since I live very near the Roman Wall I m so glad I stepped out of m comfort zone as this novel is an absolute triumph Can the actions of one brave man, halt the might of the Roman Empire If he is to do so, he wil [...]

    6. Book It Up on said:

      I found For the Love of Armin to be an unusual novel, with its heavily scholarly historical focus mixed with pure storytelling It certainly fleshes out dry educational facts with the author s imagined conversations and interactions Readers are treated to much discussion and explanation of gladiators, battles and sexual encounters If this were to form the basis for a film it would definitely contain scenes of a Certificate 18 nature The author does not unnecessarily complicate the text, he mainta [...]

    8. Only the Best Books on said:

      For the Love of Armin, is an exciting and interesting book based on factual events The plot focuses mainly around a world changing battle that resulted in the loss of tens of thousands of Roman troops and the trials of Germanic warrior Armin.This novel would make a really great gift for anyone who has an interest in ancient history They get all the facts, but delivered in an exciting, moving, and interesting story The author manages to be factually correct, but keeps his writing style dynamic an [...]

    9. Page After Page on said:

      This is one for the role players for certain Battles galore, rich in historical facts and an almost uncanny insider knowledge of the exploits of Germanic warriors Michael Kramer is familiar with war, that much is outstandingly evident from this book, his first novel based on the Vietnam war and his own personal history, serving in the army In this book he intersperses chunks of very well research based history with fictional suppositions that leave no stone unturned and little to the imagination [...]

    10. Reading Right on said:

      The is a whole lot of research gone into this book, that much was clear right from the off, with the intense level of detail and comfortable way in which the author sets scenes and describes the era.The writing is fluid and the style fits well with story and plot line, and I ve read a lot bigger titled historical based novels in the past that didn t manage this near as well Overall I found For The Love Of Armin to be an enjoyable book that I have since recommended to a friend Looking forward to [...]
