I have a low tolerance for nonfiction. This historical snapshot of daily life in one medieval city in 1250 was a delight to read. It had my rapt attention, and I caught myself saying, "Huh!" or chuckling numerous times while reading it. I loved the first half of the book. The second half was a bit less interesting, only because the topics weren't as personal. A truly fascinating read, filled with technical details but somehow never dry. I will definitely devour Life in a Medieval Castle!
