The Congress of Rough Riders

The Congress of Rough Riders of the World for a contemporary audience William refuses to have any part of it When tragedy strikes however it is to his father that he must eventually return I m a fan of John Boyle but have had this book for a few years now and it took three attempts to read it Although I enjoy historical fiction the subject matter just didn t interest me and I felt the stories didn t flow well due to the layout of the chapters jumping back and forth from different time periods within each chapter rather than each story being clearly defined I also found the present day William Cody to be a really unlikable man The only gripping part of his story the murder of his wife is mentioned at the start of the book had it not been expected by the reader then perhaps his story would have had of a dramatic climax Generally disappointed but glad I ve read it I ve definitely enjoyed John Boyne s later novels a lot

    I was disappointed in this one and gave up early on This is the first time I have given up on a book by John Boyne In this book Boyne begins telling the story from the point of view of William Cody great grandson of Buffalo Bill Cody For me it was a huge problem that Buffalo Bill is an historical figure who didn

    The thing I love about John Boyne is his ability to write across a broad range of genre's with a variety of plots and settings and still ensure that the historical facts are correct and that the reader is completely submerged in the
