Once he loses another of his loved ones, William Wallace begins his long quest to make Scotland free once and for all, along with the assistance of Robert the Bruce Sep 05, Alex Farrand rated it it was ok Shelves: Not every man really lives” Braveheart is about the myth of a man named William Wallace, who fights for Scotland’s freedom against England in the late s.
Does the man succeed?
Every few lines I had to fight the urge to scream freedom, or I would look silly or scare my dog. I had to fight the urge to find a kilt, a broadsword, a horse, and paint my face blue and run down the street screaming my battle cry. Is that my fault? No, I blame the movie that would play in my head while reading this page novel. Randall Wallace, possibly related to William Wallace, created his own version of the William Wallace myth. This novel bravrheart not historically accurate by any means.
My next section is about the legend, if you watched the movie you will be fine. He runs away with bravehewrt help of a girl, possibly his wife, and the English kill her. Wallace said “Hell No, i’ll kill you,” and beats up the English, and gains a whole bunch of followers. In Stirling, he wins a great battle, but loses an officer who is very important, which leads to his downfall. Wallace loses the next battle and flees. The English look high and low for him, and eventually catch him.
Wallace was then tried and found guilty. Let us leave it that his death was brutal and extreme. That is about it. I don’t want to ruin too much for you all.

There is a ton of information about William Wallace on the internet. It was a fun book, but I am not sure if I am being biased or not, since the movie is a classic and great with crazy Mel. I started the rating at 3 stars and I thought about it some more and I don’t believe it really deserves 3 stars. I didn’t like the writing, and I thought the writing was very poor. Everything came out flat and monotoned to me, and I concluded that it was unacceptable.
For a book that is meant to be filled with passion, because of this one woman and his patriotic love of Scotland, and emotional, I just simply didn’t feel it in my heart. If Wallcae read this book first I don’t think I would scream my battle cry, with my face painted blue and wearing my bravehsart.
Honestly, it is probably Dorthy Dunnett’s fault, since she is an amazing historical fiction author. I haven’t watch Braveheart a billion times. I think a few years ago I finally watched the movie from beginning to end, but generally that is how I roll. I never watch a full movie for whatever reason. I thought the movie and book were very similar.
Not a lot of Irishman quotes in the book, which is just a disappointment. Not right in the head, if you ask me. The movie might be better. Braveheart a story about the legend, William Wallace. Read it or just tell me what you think about the movie.

England never took responsibility for the carnage they put upon the people of Radall. A shame that England can never come out from!! England can only feel shame!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Mar 08, Charles rated it it was amazing Shelves: I very much liked the movie Braveheart.
The same man who wrote the movie also wrote this book and they are almost identical, with a few relatively minor exceptions.
Just as I liked the movie, I liked the book a lot. I’ve heard that the history is not terribly accurate here and there are clearly some speculative things. But as a heroic tale it certainly worked. At least for me. Jul 30, Lusitarius rated it it was amazing Shelves: I’ve loved the movie ever since I saw it for the first time. That time I also had my first crush on actor, and since that I’ve been a huge Mel Gibson -fan. So it’s really no wonder, that I wanted to read this book at some point of my life.
I liked the story very much. I could see it clearly in front of me; every moment of William Wallace’s epic story. Characters were described very well, they seemed very realistic. The only negative thing in the book was the few too short chapters, they really bu I’ve loved the movie ever since I saw it for the first time.
The only negative thing in the book was the few too short chapters, they really bugged me. And the epilogue was really weird, Randall talked to William? But the story was so strong and full of life, that you’d almost believe that all this really happened. This book is one of my favorites from now on. Dec 26, Michelle rated it it was amazing Shelves: Jul 15, Jordan rated it liked it Shelves: They fought like Scotsmen. I have grown up with the story and the movie, starring Mel Gibson.
That being said, I wasn’t a huge fan of this book. It was just like the movie, with some added facts and events, which was amazing. If I hadn’t watched the movie dozens of times before I read this book, then I probably would have loved it.
Throughout the entire book, I just wanted things to move quicker and read about certa “They fought like warrior poets. Throughout the entire book, I just wanted things to move quicker and read about certain events. The parts added about Isabella of France were boring and although I saw how they were needed for the story to fully make sense, I was still skimming them.
My favorite parts of the entire book were the ones that included Hamish and Stephen. They are by far my favorite characters and, lucky for me, were seen in most of the book.
