Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I think this is the only book I haven't been able to finish, The historical background is excellent but there was too much focus on blood & guts & eyes gouged out. Some is necessary since that was the reality of that time, but it held up the plot occasionally. It's a very masculine book so far with little feminine action except in a reported way ( Messalina) Maybe I'll finish it sometime when I've had a rest from torture & death. The "honour" code of the Romans is well represented.

Plot, characters & situation all good but the profusion of capital letters for army & police departments are irritating. Also purely U.S. references. (What's a tat sleeve?) The description of the effects of surface mining are excellent & would make a good green campaign

Pretty good but rather too much fantasy & not enough plot. Or rather, the plot took a while tohang together. The end was good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another in a favourite series, 12 Sept. 2013

I love the rambling almost gossipy style. I feel I really know and care about the characters. Bertie is my favourite. I'm looking forward to the next news bulletin to find out if being a year older helps Bertie combat those awful girls and what will happen to his mother?

4.0 out of 5 stars more Pratchett - thank goodness, 14 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I chose this book because I've always been a Pratchett fan. I love his inventiveness and especially his brand of humour. I still enjoyed this collaborative one but found it rather slow. There was too much description of different worlds and creatures and not enough satire. Towards the middle and to the end the plot and characters were more active and my usual avid reading took over.

5.0 out of 5 stars A most unusual book, 30 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Sisterhood (Kindle Edition)
The timelines are skilfully balanced to give a satisfying solution to the mystery. I found the new interpretation of gospel stories fascinating and agreed with the role given to male clerics. The Inquistion is truly frightening.

The atmosphere is good and the land and society believable. It has agood plot line and a hero to identify with. I look forward to the next in this series

This is a book both to look at with pleasure and to use and be creative. Every page is a feast for the eyes , but when you read the notes there are many helpful tips. It is both inspiting and useful.

This was a book I could get lost in.. I could identify with the characters and the situations were believable.
