Το βιβλίο αυτό, καταρχήν, έχει πολύ ενδιαφέρουσα δομή. Αποτελείται από ένα ιστορικό μυθιστόρημα που καταλαμβάνει το μεγαλύτερο μέρος αυτού, ένα διήγημα που θα έλεγα ότι θα μπορούσε χαρακτηριστεί ως μυστηρίου και μια συλλογή ποιημάτων. Όλα τα παραπάνω συνδέονται από μια κοινή ιδέα κι έχουν αναφορά στην ζωή του Βάλτερ που πραγματεύεται στο πρώτο μέρος του.
Το βιβλίο κυριαρχείται από μια έντονη φιλοσοφική διάθεση και συγκεκριμένα είναι επηρεασμένο από την νεοπλατωνική θεώρηση και δευτερευόντως

First I say I received this book free via Goodreads giveaway. I want to thank the author for it and nice autograph. Since it is the exchange for the honest review I try my best to write about the book.
The grade is actually more like 2,5 which is actually the middle and nice :)

The book is written with nice style, I really liked the way author uses the language,
although He tends to use some words too much for my taste (for example
intoxicating) - I am sure it can be said another way :)

This book is divided into two books - "Walter" plus "The Resurrection of G". The former takes place in medieval times; the latter in the present day. Yet the latter intersects with the former as the hero of part two pictures the life of Walter in part one as himself. The reader enjoys the history of part one and then wants the hero of part two to receive love in his otherwise not too happy life. T. J. Armstrong provides suspense in both lives, as the reader turns page upon page.

If you read this as a medieval adventure (and that really would work) it is well written albeit a little slow at times but I really feel that there must be more to it than 'just a story' I sensed throughout that the author was passing on a message, I'm just not sure what that message was.
I'm told I over think and that might have spoilt my enjoyment a tad. Suffice to say, I enjoyed the read.

My copy was free via Goodreads giveaways

If you like medieval works you will like enjoy this book. It is long but enjoyable. I won this great book on GoodReads and like I do with most my wins I will be paying it forward by giving my win either to a friend or library to enjoy.
