Volumes I and II were much faster moving and more fun to read. Volume III seemed to take forever to finish, but once you are that far in, it is hard to just let it go. The circus theme was entertaining and I learned a lot, but it could definitely been much shorter!
I really enjoyed this trilogy. It was filled with humor, pathos and tragedy. The ever changing cast of characters made for a rollicking romp and a good read. I kept picturing Frank Morgan(The Wizard of OZ) playing Florian in the movie version.
All of the Spangle books are an excellent read and are completely different from most of the fiction genres. Jenning's exhaustive research really brought the characters, locations and situations to life. It's a shame Jennings is gone.
THE great writer of historical adventure fiction. Not only does Gary Jennings take you back in time to meet unforgettable characters, but he makes every moment count with mounting tension and action.
Fantastic ending to the trilogy (or book if you prefer)!

Gary Jennings led a paradoxically picaresque life. On one hand, he was a man of acknowledged intellect and erudition. His novels were international best sellers, praised around the world for their stylish prose, lively wit and adventurously bawdy spirit. They were also massive - often topping 500,000 words - and widely acclaimed for the years of research he put into each one, both in libraries and ...more
