Historical thriller it was indeed. Nicely woven with a bet far fetched norm of the days, but other then that it was a pleasure to read in easy writing.
Contradictory on the fact that the title of the book would imply the many prediction made, but instead to be more of the dramatic life style, embedded with a single or nearly two real made predictions. But nonetheless, a book that depicts a glance of elaborate fictional historical thriller, for any who appreciate such works.

Glad that's over. Might've just been the translation but it was terrible.
