Read in October, 2010

Interestingly enough, i came across this book at a Dollar Tree and something about it made me want to purchase it.
It was a pretty fast read and held my attention for days. It isnt the best book i have ever read but for some reason it was one of my favorites. It had an incredibly thick plot with twists throughout every chapter. I am not a historian so i cannot vouch for its accuracy but i hardly think that matters in this case.
Ugo is the main character and basically tragic things always happen to him for whatever reason. He is an incredibly unlucky guy. The only thing he cares about in the word is his daughter, who is described as absolutely gorgeous. Every thing and every decision he makes is to make it so she doesn't spend her life as a peasant.
This is the author's only book excluding a few children's books he has done.
Its one of those books you could read multiple times over and enjoy it just the same.
If i could do it any justice i might call it a poor man's The Princess Bride.
