Finally giving up on finishing this one. Got through Notre Dame. Stories of buildings, or rather of people's ideas of what buildings should be, or are, or aren't. Wish there were more pictures, though obviously not always possible. Still the brief sketches at the beginning of the chapters is not enough, even though the author paints the buildings for us with words.
