Excellent. It was great that this was my first time, having all the critique and contextual elements to appreciate it and not simply say: "An old book about a knight that kills arabs, must be anti-islam" like most of the immature popular trend does today.
A true masterpiece in its own way, builds a reflexive stereotype of the hero, something unusual if you're used to greek tragedy, but equally (if not more) exciting.
