I found this historical novel about the Borgias fascinating. With all that has been written about them through the years, I feel that Ms. Dunant has done a wonderful job of making them come alive as real people. You feel the pain Lucretia feels as a young innocent who is manipulated by her father and brother. The arrogance and lust for power of Cesare and the corrupt and exploitive nature of the Pope in almost every aspect of his life except his love for his children . It was not a fast moving book but the fabulous narration of Mr. Ballerini kept me listening and wondering what would happen next! If you like Historical fiction I think you will find this book well written and researched
I am so happy to have discovered this series. I love historical novels especially when they are full of mystery, murder and mayhem! Edoardo Ballerini is an amazingly talented actor who is the perfect narrator for a book of this length. I was never bored- he kept me engaged the entire time. The book is funny, sad, interesting and full of great characters. I highly recommend spending time in Matthew Corbett's world!
I was not expecting much of what happened in this book. The character development was one of the best I have read in a long time.The details of the era were fascinating and I enjoyed the twists and turns in the plot. The only negative was that I think the author wanted to wrap everything up perfectly at the end, some things could have been left to the imagination. All in all it was entertaining, had a great message and was well written. I liked Elizabeth McGoverns narration as I think it was accurate for the era and for a Kansas matron. I would highly recommend using your credits on this one!
