I did not think much of this book. I felt that the author reduced the stories to their bare bone plots - and in that a lot was lost. It felt like a whirlwind sum up of the Canterbury Tales that was a quick - but basically boring and pointless read. There was nothing really intriguing about the stories or the characters. I also didn't care much for the drawings. I especially didn't like that there were so many naked women. Do we honestly need to see bare cartoon breasts in every single tale?

* I won a copy of this book from First Reads.
