Even More Reviews of “Knights of the Saltier”

The fifth review of the book.

This would make a great film!!, August 13, 2010 by NE

I have read a number of novels that have been turned into film, and I’ve always been disappointed. The books never translated well into a visual medium. However, after reading Knights of the Saltier by William Speir, I think this is a book that would translate very well into a film. The author’s style of writing is very visual, and I found it easy to picture the action in my mind as I read the book. The plot made sense, it was believable, and it was entertaining. The character development was well done, and the lead characters were compelling figures in the story. The pace of the book never dragged nor went by too fast. In short, it was a great book, a great story, and would make an excellent movie. I look forward to the second book being released.
