I found the portrayal of Mithradates both interesting and entertaining. Though I must say the fictionalized "alternate ending" didn't sit too well with me, and some of the "virtual history" came out a bit forced. Overall, a great read.
I loved this book. The portrayal of Middle English, the onset of the plague, and the futuristic Oxford all were wonderful. There are a few places where the book drabs a bit, and where the characters seem to freeze, but overall, the book is a fantastic read. Well worth the time.
This is book is a great listen. Fantastically well researched, and brilliantly written. Well read too!
