Best Historical Novel I've read Jan 31, 2008
I can Say many things about this book, but the only one really important is that if you are historically interested in history of France at the 14th century you should definitely read this book. Not only this one but the whole series (7 books) All this books are relatively short, no more than 300 pages each. They focus on specific Kings of France and all the events of the time. Even if you are not a fan of history, if you like Novels, this saga contains more intrigue, deception, adventures, well shaped characters (as they were real, all of them) than any good modern fiction novel.
Puedo decir muchas cosas de este libro, pero lo verdaderamente importante es que si estas interesado en la historia de Francia durante el sigo 14, entonces este libro es para ti. No solamente este libro, sino toda la serie (7 libros). Todos estos libros son relativamente cortos, sin mucha mas de 300 paginas cada uno. Están enfocados reyes de Francia específicos y todos los eventos de su tiempo.
Aún si no se es fanático de la novela histórica, si se es fan de novelas, esta saga contiene mas intriga, engaño, aventuras, personales bien estructurados (fueron reales) que cualquier buen novela de ficcion moderna.
