Publisher's Summary

As Constantinople is being pillaged and burned in April 1204, a young man, Baudolino, manages to save a historian and a high court official from certain death at the hands of crusading warriors. Born a simple peasant, Baudolino has two gifts: his ability to learn languages and to lie. A young man, he is adopted by a foreign commander who sends him to university in Paris. After he allies with a group of fearless and adventurous fellow students, they go in search of a vast kingdom to the East - a kingdom of strange creatures, eunuchs, unicorns and, of course, lovely maidens.

Fusing historical events with myths and fables, this is a lighthearted, splendid tale.

    "A mythical portrait of an extraordinary time"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Baudolino to be better than the print version?

    Never read the paper version.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Baudolino?

    The psychological musings of the characters and the authenticity of their conversations, fitting the context of a time when much was imagined but very little known, to the common man. This book is great for getting one's imagination working. It is an epic.
