Really liked it at first. Waned on me a little bit. The style of the writing started out cool but became less noticeable though reading. The content of the story was really thought-provoking, enigmatic, and radical in its conspiratorial element. And I don't think it was over-done but represented very accurately here. I love historical fiction for this reason. History always is truly an enigma that must be decoded. We were not there and do not know what happened. The open mystery of this makes for such fulfillment in "fiction".

I really just loved the history inbound in this book.
