The one quibble I have with Cornwell's writing is that he'll change his POV character in the middle of a scene. He writes third person limited, but he can be clunky about it. A scene might be written entirely from Sharpe's POV, and near the end of the scene we're suddenly in Lawson's head. That has always given me mental whiplash; I'm settled into one character, and suddenly I'm elsewhere.
It's amazing how many good-selling writers actually do that, which bugs the living shit out of me...
