Keeps changing style, annoying.
on 6 October 2017
The sample pages were like historic fiction, bought the book after reading the first pages but without warning it turns into a history book and then jumps to post Soviet travelogue. End chapter and ten year old Taymour is learning to fight.
I just needed something beyond Wikipedia on taymour, even his name us hard to pin down because it can be spelt a number of ways, even without the lame bit. Tamerlane is full of info that would be missing from a simple novel but it is hard to get into.
