Way too heavy,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Pope's Rhinoceros (Paperback)
I love historical novels and this started particularly well - although getting more complex all the time. Northern Europe, Renaissance Rome vividly recreated, and with some aplombe, but you have to keep your wits about you to follow the plot. However, the whole thing died under its own weight (rather like the rhinocerous) when half way through there is a complete discontinuity, and I couldn't be bothered to start all over again. A very good half book, however.
