I am one hour and 46 minutes into the book and have stopped. So far, the author has carefully and eloquently described a multitude of boring daily tasks of various people, without capturing my interest at all. Unfortuneately, I bought it the day before the previous review was posted.
I usually do not take a chance on books without customer reviews, but I loved the summaries and time period this covered. The narrator is good, and the writer has a gift for clearly describing human intent and hidden agenda. Much of the text is of strong historical value. However, overall, one may need patience to achieve the end, as the story is slow to develop with rare tense moments.
This is a simplistic story, but incredibly hard to put down. In the end, this book stayed with me and inspired me more than I thought it would. I strongly recommend it.
