As much as I enjoy reading 16th century ideas (or rather, ideals), this book is pretty unforgiving.

It's safe to say that I enjoy the idea of this book more than the book itself. I love the importance of this book, but have a semi-difficult time plodding through it (especially on a re-read, when the ideas itself aren't new).

I am fascinated by Sir Thomas More's legend, and the time period this book was written in. I'm also astonished that the ideals he put forth didn't result in him being barred from court, but he became Chancellor after it was published, and it wasn't until much later when he refused to accept the King as head of the Church of England, that he was executed for his views.
