This wasn't a great book like Thirteenth Tale, but I definitely found myself becoming involved and caring the characters. I enjoyed setting of the story--a monastery just months before its dissolution at the hands of Henry VIII. The plot was complicated enough to keep me curious, but not too involved or complicated that I couldn't figure it out. I enjoyed the story a lot.
First, this book is very reminiscent of Name of the Rose (not necessarily a bad thing, but just know that it seems derivative). Second, do not listen to this while driving as the narrator can put you to sleep.
