it was amazing
Recommended for: history buffs, medieval age fans

Me likes the medieval age! I don't have a head for history (among other things) and this is a rare second reading for me, but I can't get enough of this crap. The middle ages have always fascinated me and Manchester's work reads like a cross between the trivialities of a Bathroom Reader/Schott's Miscellany and the subjectivity of say a Stephen Ambrose. AND, on top of that, there was some SERIOUS debauchery going on during these times ... holy crap.
