it was amazing
bookshelves: 1066-1600ce
Read from October 19 to 26, 2010

I'm not sure "it was amazing" is the right rating for this book but it is a very good book. It is well written, personal, and engaging. Although you basically know the outcome - it is about the Bubonic Plague after all - Brooks still manages to keep you interested enough to keep reading. Anna (the heroine) relays the horrible details of a plague village in self-imposed quarantine without being gruesome or unneccesarily vulgar. Her matter-of-fact voice makes sure that you are not overwhelmed. A Very Good Book.
