    Vastly enjoyable

    This was not the spectacularly exciting 'novel' I thought might be along the lines of 'The DaVinci Code.' However it is gripping, like listening to a storyteller unwind a convoluted tale, you can't wait to find out what happens next! The book was written much as a thesis would be with facts building upon facts. The author hastens to state which are his own conclusions and assumptions as opposed to historical facts. It is a very mind-opening book, and I'll probably read it again since I may have missed something. Lot's of historical 'ah ha' moments.
