bookshelves: dont-bother

I could barely stomach what little I read of this book. I was very excited, because I found this one right as I was discovering historical fiction for the first time. I was sorely let down. Repeated references to various women as "juicy" was so low-brow, I felt like I was reading a trashy romance novel. I kept the book around, thinking I might pick it back up, but after several years I just got rid of it. Why waste time when there are so many quality tomes out there?

Mourice Houlette You two prudes should join a convent and read the Bible all day long. That truly historical fiction.

Nenia Campbell I'm so glad I'm not the only one out there who did not enjoy this book. :)

Raiveran Rabbit I'm stunned someone picked up something this dry and noticed something like that. the thing's over 1000 pages of politics and wars and you opened it to a page about chicks. Stunning.

I wouldn't say I liked it either, but it was interesting and I can certainly appreciate it.
