A new student review of Boudica, Queen of the Iceni by Marlene Sosebee

BG posted a new student review of Boudica, Queen of the Iceni by Marlene Sosebee. See the full review.

Boudica Queen of the Iceni was not exactly what I expected. In historical fictions I like to have a lot of history woven into a brightly illustrated story. For me, it’s first about the history, then the fiction story that weaves it together. Boudica Queen of the Iceni isn’t a book I’d readily recommend along the historical lines, although there is the story line of the invasion and affliction of the Celts. On the other hand if you have an interest in astrology or the zodiac you would enjoy this book as it describes these in detail using each character in the book. As each character is introduced you get a good description of their zodiac signs and the character traits they portray.
