really liked it
Read from June 10 to 22, 2010

The book centers around the year 1492, primarily covering the unification of the Spanish kingdoms, the final defeat of the Moors, and dealing with Jews and Muslims who were hanging out in Spain. "Dealing with" in the convert or die sort of way. It was also nice that it dispelled a lot of the nonsense surrounding Columbus (the nonsense you learn in American schools at least).

It's written in an easy to read narrative style that kept me interested throughout.
