I was not sure what to expect from this book. When I saw its somewhat short length, I was initially concerned it would be too brief to become invested in the story and characters. I am happy to be wrong! Boudicca was well written and performed. The descriptions are detailed and facilitate vivid images in your mind as you follow the tale. It is not particularly graphic, in terms of violence or sexuality, but not purely triple filtered kid's stuff either. I found it to be enjoyable. The story is framed in a way that lets you float back in time with the storyteller easily. If you are looking for a super detailed period piece that captures every significant moment of the subject's life, this is not for you. If you are looking for a book that captures the highlights of the subject's life and shares them in an accessible and engaging way, this is well worth your time.
