This book was just AWSOME!! I am totally gonna read it again!!!
I hated this book at first. The entire opening chapter was a chore. He was describing his character and the places with excessive detail and much of that detail involved terms and actions that were not a part of my vocabulary. If I lived in 14th century Germany and/or had much of a religious background, perhaps I'd be better equipped to cope with some of the terms. The book took a long time to warm me up, but when it did I found myself really involved with the characters and caring about what happened to them. Not a whole lot happens, but there is a lot of depth within the characters. I found the 14th century parts more compelling than the modern day parts, but they flow well together in the end. I'd recommend it as one of the best 2007 Hugo nominees.
