Though The Historian started off incredibly well, I found myself growing weary of the seemingly endless amount of letters that were hastily rehashed in the following chapter, allowing me to skim, and boring talk with little progress.
It was around the end of part two/beginning of part three that I resorted to skimming the entire book, and completely guessing the ending.
Worth a read if you have the time for it. But be warned, this goes into almost too much unnecessary detail. They could have easily trimmed 200 pages from this book, tightened it's flow, and you would have never known the difference.
