I loved The Historian. It's kind of a historical novel, thriller and mystery wrapped up in one.
I have this book in my TBR pile. From what I've seen people either love it or hate it. I hope I'm one of the ones that love it because it sounds really interesting.
I am "LOVE IT" person. But, you are right, many people I knew didn't like it at all.
(I'm one of the "haters"..couldn't even finish it.)
I thought it was a good story, but it was totally bogged down in too much description. I love description in books, but this was a little too much for me.
Thank you for your patience
