"All in all, this 'sheer knight-errantcy' is a marvelous entertainment." (Kirkus)
I mostly read historical non-fiction and fiction and I love it when it's done well.
Yes - I would have had trouble with the French names and I liked having them pronounced correctly and beautifully.
Toward the end I neglected my life and had my headphones on for a good four hours. I was transported. :)
