Overview

The Borgias by Alexandre Dumas

The Borgias There are dreadful -- perhaps scurrilous -- rumors about the Borgias of renaissance Italy, and here Dumas, author of such classics as THE COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO, in his Celebrated Crimes series, dishes up the dirt in all its ugly glory. This book was not written for children. Dumas has minced no words in describing the violent scenes of a violent time. In some instances facts appear distorted out of their true perspective, and in others the author makes unwarranted charges. The careful, mature reader -- for whom the books are intended -- will recognize and allow for this fact.

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.

Look, guys. There are some people who are ten that roleplay here. Don't use those words. Second, get your c<_>rappy stupid ads out of here. This is a roleplay. It's not the Erin Hunter books. Goodbye! Scram! Leave before I throw my strikers at your head (and hit them bulls eye!)
