    This is a kick ass novel, and I am indeed kicking my own ass for not having read it earlier I m ashamed to say that I thought it was a children s book My wife indignantly refuses any responsibility for my mistake as she points out, it s entirely my fault if I drew the wrong inferences from the fact that her mother read it aloud to her as an eight year old It turns out, on closer examination of the facts, that Elisabeth s mom must have skipped about a quarter of the text but I digress No This is a kick ass novel, and I am indeed kicking my own ass for not having read it earlier I m ashamed to say that I thought it was a children s book My wife indignantly refuses any responsibility for my mistake as she points out, it s entirely my fault if I drew the wrong inferences from the fact that her mother read it aloud to her as an eight year old It turns out, on closer examination of the facts, that Elisabeth s mom must have skipped about a quarter of the text but I digress No, far from being a children s book, this is a noirish thriller, stuffed to the gills with violence,...

    I m not going to wastetime than necessary for this classic The problem seems to come from me, since I couldn t follow a lot of the dialog I couldn t make any sense of what transpired here, especially in the last third of the book.I liked the intrigue with the royal couple of LouisXIII and Anne d Autruche And as soon as ...
