    Wonderful Book on 12 or 13 Levels

    It's a murder mystery, it's a glimpse into the history and pathos of the 14th Century, a lesson in acting and mime: it's written seamlessly (which should never be confused with effortlessly) and MORALITY PLAY reads, as they say, like butter. Good, good book in conception and execution..

    A Winner

    Being on a middle-ages kick for a while, I had to pick up this book after I read the synopsis. Well, I was definately pleased after just reading the first chapter, and knew I was in for a good book. Read this book!

    Very well written story

    This book is so well written that you don't mind that it takes half the book to get to the real story. The fated priest meets a troup of play actors by accident and joins up to delay facing his bishop following an act of adultery. The actors decide to create plays around the mysterious murder of a young boy in a small town in order to make more money than their traditional morality plays are yielding. Fate deals with the actors during these plays of reality.

    Geez, if I'd read those reviews first --

    I might not have bought the book. (smile) Everything those literary types say is true, but Morality Play is also a darn good read. It's not as 'difficult' as Name of the Rose (anyone else keep their dictionary nearby when reading that one?) and it's not the treacly romantic stuff of historical fiction either. Unsworth is just so unpretentious -- I wish more writers could present big ideas the way he does.
