    I can t remember the last time I was so glad to have finished a book Clearly, this is an award winning work with lots of glowing reviews From about the middle of the book on, it was a slog to get through I won t say the book itself is bad, as it was meticulously researched and written I think it sa case of what I was expecting, and what I instead got from this that caus
