So, I found this essay a lot better than reading Utopia, but still is was quite dry. I am dreading writing a review on it, which I will do within this week. In the meanwhile, I am moving on. For someone who loves history, I am finding this list of history not very enjoyable.


Beth | 46 comments Well, I'll be interested to see what you think. I'll also be finishing it soon.

I found he repeated himself often, which is not a problem for me when I am trying to retain ideas and facts. And it was interesting in spurts. Other than that, it was a dry.


Beth | 46 comments my review is up at last:

I didn't like this as much as the other readings we've done so far, but then again, I skipped Bede and only read some selections from Augustine...

It took me so long to just sit down and write anything. I'm really struggling w/ these history choices. : /
