This is not a book to be devoured. At least it wasn't for me. Instead it was a book to read and immerse oneself in; slow and intelligent.

In spite of its short length, I've been reading this for weeks, until I reached the last part of the book, and 70 pages just flew by in a few days.

In the end, I was surprised by how invested I had become in the story of past emperors and their politic schemes; how fascinated I was by the politic game of chess the characters so easily navigated in.
