Read in February, 2011

Although I found this book engrossing, I also found the pace of it predictable and annoying. I enjoyed learning about that era and the way people lived, but feel so much of the humanity was sacrificed to keep the reader turning the page. I know this author is widely known for his thrillers, but I wish he had tailored his storytelling techniques to fit the material. I also had the sense that if this book had been written by a woman it would have been relegated to feminine historical fiction at the first mention of a heaving bosom.
