If you expect this to be the memoirs of an executioner, you may be disappointed. It's snippets of that, but mostly commentary on the original manuscript and speculations about what may have been his attitudes and feelings about this or that, mixed in with a lot of peripheral materials about religion and medicine and many other things. The original executioner's journal is basically used as a scanty framework for all this. So if you're looking for information about 16th centiry Europe and Germany in particular, you'll be happy.

This was a well written book it paints a great picture of the 16th century, that allows you to see it through the character's eyes.
