Best-selling author Bernard Cornwell received national acclaim for the historical drama of his Civil War series, the Starbuck Chronicles, which includes Rebel, Copperhead, and Battle Flag. Now, in Stonehenge, he creates a dramatic saga of one of greatest wonders of the ancient world.

Four thousand years ago, three brothers grow up in a land that is now Britain. One becomes a warrior, ruthless in his pursuit of gold and power. One is a mystic who sees visions of the future and hears the gods speak to him. Between them stands Sagan, the gentle brother who will dedicate his life to building a temple he hopes will bring health and peace to the land. As the giant stones are moved into their sacred pattern, Bernard Cornwell draws the listener into the conflicts of brother against brother, men against gods. Narrator George Guidall's performance brings forth a world filled with the sights and sounds of bronze-age life.

    " I found this book to be rather dull and too simply written. I was interested in the story enough to push my way (slowly) through the book. I just couldn't buy into most of the characters. "

    " Boo. A bad book. The subject of Stonehenge has enough mystery as to why it was built and by whom to allow anybody to take a stab at it. Its all theoretical, so why not make something up thats interesting. Well, here it is not that interesting. The basic facts about Stonehenge are much more interesting than the drama presented here. This book was what would have happened if Stonehenge was built as the set of a soap opera. The characters are thin, and seem to be guessing as to what is going on around them. If you are going to set people in a cold, savage world where human sacrifice is part of day to day life, you have got to make those people relatable in some way. And I don't know where this dude came up with the names for the characters and there gods, but they sounded like something out of a bad fantasy game. Of all the names that early man had for the sun god, you don't need to go making one up as bad as Slaol. Some historical context, please! Read 'Hengeworld' by Mike Pitt before you read this jive. "
