I enjoyed this read, but it felt a bit incomplete to me. I suppose that is to be expected with journal-type books. The characters cannot be expected to record every aspect of their lives, I suppose!

Overall, I enjoy this series. These books provide a glimpse of history for those who may complain that history is "boring."
