Lorenzo the Magnificent only replied with sobs; and one hour after the scene which we have just related, his lips clinging to the feet of the Christ, he breathed his last in the arms of these three men, of whom the most fortunate-- though all three were young--was not destined to survive him more than two years.

    Interesting read

    I liked the book, my only issue is either the translation or ebook version needed some heavy editing. The same word, used in various places in the book was spelled two different ways, God and Gad both appear in the text.

    Disgustingly full of typos. Overly descriptive. Not a very enjoyable reading experience.
