I didn't finish it. While the information here is fascinating and her premise is right up my alley, I couldn't get into this book at the time.

Possibly I was put off by the affected, flowery language, which wasn't entirely bad, as it was suited for the subject and the author's approach.

Even with a partial read, there is plenty of history I never knew. I'll take another crack at it for that reason.
