I like historical fiction. I chose this book because I had read reviews that said this author was like a 20th century Alexandre Dumas. NOT. No fine flourishes of rhetoric. Instead of carving beautiful characterizations in marble, this author pushes around clay with fat thumbs to make his characters. He uses casual rape frequently for his plot. Most of the conversations are petty bickering. Couldn't bear to listen anymore.
Entertaining, informing and sometimes thought provoking. Everything one wants from a historical novel. Can't wait to start the next one.

I thought about giving up on this book, not one for listeners wanting non stop action. Not particularly deep or philosophical, but I was sadly moved at the end.
This guy has some sexual obsession with lactating women. His lengthy and frequent descriptions of the nursemaid breast feeding were nauseating. Kind of out me off the book. Rather dull. Give it a miss
