really liked it
Recommended to Chris by: Me
Recommended for: Mystery readers; epic readers
Read in January, 1994 , read count: 1

I read this so long ago, like 15 years ago, so I can't talk specifics. But I like the epic sweep through the centuries, all with the backdrop of the construction and use of one cathedral. The architectural aspect is educational, as I recall. I tend to like writing about architectural stuff, like "The Fountain Head" and "The Devil in the White City".

I might give this three stars if I read it today, but I loved it at the time, so I'm sticking with a 4.
