READ & DOWNLOAD ☆ The Eagle of the Ninth Back the symbol of the lost legion’s honour their standard the Eagle of the Ninth Now adapted as a major motion picture ‘The Eagle’ starring Channing Tatum Jamie Bell and Donald Sutherland ‘The Eagle of the Ninth’ is a timeless tale that will thrill all listeners This recording was previously available on cassette In 117 ADCE the Ninth Legion of the Roman Army marched into the mists of Caledonia the land known today as Scotland They were never seen againThe standard bearer of the Legio IX Hispana who held aloft the golden eagle as they marched was the father of our hero Marcus Flavius Auila Marcus was a lad of twelve years when his father vanished Now a young adult eager to prove his mettle Marcus himself serves as a Roman officer in Britain He is discharged after a grievous battle wound that gives him a slight limp While recuperating in the house of his uncle Marcus has nothing but downtime in which to ponder the fate of his father and the standard he carried into the Caledonian mists He also forms three fast friendships The first is with Esca a young Briton whom Marcus purchased as a manservant slave to save him from the gladiator fights The second is with an orphaned wolf cub named simply Cub whom Esca adopted when on a hunting excursion that killed Cub s mother The third is with Cottia a British girl being unwillingly raised as a Roman by the family next doorWhen he has sufficiently recovered Marcus accompanied only by Esca decides to go north beyond the wall of Britannia and follow the trail of the Ninth Legion into Celtic lands unknown His intent to bring back the Eagle and restore the honor of his father s LegionContent Advisory Violence There s a gladiator combat where men and beasts are slain although Sutcliff spares us the worst of the gore There s also a battle seuence that focuses on Marcus state of mind than the carnage around him Another battle towards the end of the book has minimal bloodshed Sex Marcus nicknames Cottia a little vixen This is a reference to her red hair and ferocity but he probably also calls her that because he finds her rather well Language Nothing Substance Abuse Everybody drinks wine and beer because the water back then was a sanitation hazard Nightmare Fuel The Celtic Feast of New Spears features some rituals that could be rather frightening to younger kids including men prancing about wearing dead animals the emblems of their clans on their heads The being here called the Horned Hunter also known as Cernunnos or Herne has a strange presence in the book the main characters don t believe in him per se but almost fear that he might spring on them as they go about their task and he s kind of spooky even though he never materializes ConclusionsThis is my first Sutcliff book and my only complaint is that somehow I did not find out about this book s existence until recently Ah well Better late than never What an outstanding novel Nearly every aspect of it is perfect The characters have such vibrancy and depth especially Marcus and Esca Marcus unlike most young Roman men in fiction is a gracious and humble fellow who cares so deeply for the honor of his father and people but thinks nothing of his own pride and even lifeEsca is uiet observant loyal and deep The way the lads develop over their journey is amazing from master and servant to brothers in arms They were able to transcend the prejudices of their respective cultures and have one of the strongest literary friendships I ve ever seenThese two are the main focus but the supporting cast is wonderful too Guern is particularly lovable Tradui is intriguing and Tribune Placidus is just one of those smarmy little pseudo villains that one loves to hate Cottia reminds me a bit of owyn with her desperate desire for freedom not to mention her penchant for standing in the wind with her bright hair billowing out from under her cloak My only complaint with her is that she should have been in of the story But Roman society in those days kept men and women apart most of the time The only way unfortunately that Cottia or any other girl could have participated in an adventure like this one is by disguising herself as a boy which wouldn t have worked in this case anyway because Marcus and Esca would have recognized her instantly Cub is a delight the fiercest of all hunters yet the doggiest of dogs who nearly starved himself to death when his master had to leave him behind and greeted him with a flurry of tail wagging and slobbery kisses when he finally came home The desolation and ferocity of Roman Britannia is the baseline of the story and Sutcliff paints the environs richly with her well chosen words The only way to make the moors the old forests and the Lowlands even forlorn than usual is to step back to this ancient era before Heathcliff and Catherine before Macbeth and the three witches before even King Arthur rose from the ashes of Rome and Druidism The few settlements are lonely little lights in the mist And as you can imagine the people living in those settlements are rather nervous Rome is far away and reinforcements take a while to reach the lime cliff shores of Britain A fell sweep of northern Celtic tribes could push the Romans back into the sea Even the gladiator fights which were aggressively festive events in Rome itself are portrayed here as being nearly as nerve wracking for the viewers as for the combatants Sutcliff masterfully evokes the tension and dread that the Roman colonists must have lived with on a daily basis With all the Biblical fiction I ve been reading lately it s interesting to see how the Western and Eastern frontiers of the Empire paralleled each other The Celts and the Judeans had nothing culturally in common beyond their fierce independence and both lands seethed against their overlords This was a thoroughly enjoyable book I m hugely impressed with Sutcliff s storytelling ability and I can t wait to read the adventures of Marcus and Cottia s descendents PS A movie based on this book came out a few years ago starring Channing Tatum as Marcus and Jamie Bell as Esca It looks like a highly enjoyable film in its own right and I could easily picture those two actors as the heroes of the story However I m annoyed that the movie appears to have written Cottia and Cub out of the story

READ & DOWNLOAD ☆ The Eagle of the Ninth A BBC Radio 4 full cast dramatisation of Rosemary Sutcliff’s much loved tale of honour comradeship and courage Somewhere around the year 117AD a Roman garrison called the Ninth Legion was ordered to put down an uprising among the Caledonian tribes Four thousand men vanished without trace into the swirling mist of the nort Classic historical fictionAt the age of eight I read Eagle of the Ninth my first encounter with historical fiction I became hooked Since then I have been read Nigel Tranter John Prebble Conn Igguden Simon Scarrow Ruth Downie and many others Forty four years later re reading this classic is no less exciting for me My view is that it should be compulsory reading in primary school as it really does bring Roman Britain to life It is an exciting adventure that could possibly have been reality It is certainly tinged with historic factThis book had an amazing positive effect on my life in that it gave me an enormous appetite for books not just historical fiction However it did have a slightly negative effect on my life I was always in trouble with my history teachers for doubting what they told me After all when they were teaching me current affairs I was guided not to believe everything that the papers say My challenge was always that the contemporary commentators or historians that they expected me to believe were no less than the journalists of their time Why couldn t the historical fiction of which I was so fond be nearer to the truth than their history text booksEagle of the Ninth is a fantastic read Whatever your age if you haven t read this book already read it now
