Captivating read! It recreates the past to a "T", a lot of research went into this novel

Interesting read...Yes it is long, but for a 'novel' view of 16th century Italy I found it detailed and interesting in regard to architecture, artists, politics, religion and society.

This is probably the first "heather's pick" novel that I haven't liked. It is long and boring for the most part. I wouldn't recommend it... it was a struggle to finish it.
