Recommended to Sho by: interview with the author
Read from May 13 to 19, 2012 — I own a copy , read count: 1

actually reading the Kindle version

I love the way it ends where it started and the writing style is lovely.

In fact it reminded me a lot of the writing in 1066 And All That, which is a Good Thing.

Highly recommended, and great to read in very small chunks.
