My SIL brought this book over and although it seems interesting, it really didn't catch my interest. I tried to link the book synopis to this thread, but being technical handicapped, I couldn't do it.

I posted it in case someone else is interested in reading it.

I read about fifty pages of this one and then put it back on my bookshelf because it was so dry. I'll probably try again eventually.

It seems rather amazing that a book about Lucrezia Borgia could be dry or uninteresting!  That doesn't say much for the writer (or maybe it says a lot!).

I felt the same way about Sarah Bradford's book on Lucrezia Borgia. It fwas very flat to me. The subject matter should have kept me riveted, but just did not and it was a painfully slow read.
