The Earth Unlike Follett s novel this is very much woven around fact and an actual building and events and is based on a contemporary chronicle It is well plotted but there is a certain predictability about it The topics you would expect to come across are there the inuisition the plague relationships with Jews and Moors the guild system money lending serfdom and slavery nobility daily life relationships between the sexes and so on It is a saga based on the main protagonist Arnau Estanyol is parents The Columbia Guide to East African Literature in English Since 1945 (The Columbia Guides to Literature Since 1945) his adopted brother Joan andis subseuent life and relationships All the boxes are ticked and this makes for the predictability The novel is informative and as it is based on Reckoning The Epic Battle Against Sexual Abuse and Harassment historical fact I did learn a good deal about theistory of fourteenth century Barcelona Some of the characterisation was a little contrived In the first part of the book there were a few characters who were clearly in the way of where the plot was clearly The Conditions of Agricultural Growth The Economics of Agrarian Change under Population Pressure headed and I thought to myself How ise going to dispose of them Along comes the plague and of course the characters in the way succumb leaving the plot to roll along The ending was also a little too cosy and predictableThis sounds like I m being rather arsh the plot does move along at a good pace and there is certainly warmth to it that is endearing It isn t taxing and would make a good beach read If I was into beaches It is very important to know when you start this book that it is in fact based on the Chronica of King Pedro III Although istorical fiction it closely follows true events in Catalonia during the 1300s under King Pedro s reign There is tons of Jane Addams history incorporated into the novel At the same time itas an engaging and fast moving plot You will learn about Barcelona the building of the cathedral Sant Maria de la Mar You will be impressed by the cathedral s Harry Potter for Nerds history its beauty andow it engaged the life of so many in Barcelona It was built for and by the people of Barcelona All its people It was built at the site of an older church and underneath it is an ancient Roman cemetery However the book and the plot covers many many other actual events wars the bubonic plague the Inuisition guild practices treatment of women and Jews in fact all aspects of life in Barcelona during the 1300s this book is a perfect example of The Mindset of Organization: Take Back Your House One Phase at a Time howistorical fiction can teach in a delightful engrossing manner There is a author s note that clearly explains what is fiction and what is fact The events that ave been altered are pointed out What is amazing is that what seems fiction is fact I wish I ad read it in the middle of the novel rather than at the end So why only three stars I know that for me to say I like the book feels appropriate than to say I really liked it This is because I never really attached my self to the characters The book is concerned with the unrolling of the plot than character analysis Each Character Plays A Significant Role There character plays a significant role there none that could URBAN ROMANCE have been eliminated Each character was rounded and well thought out but maybe the fact that all was so well planned that there were few bizarre elements that it simply felt a bit boring I do not mean the plot was boring that was rolling along at full speed continually In fact it felt a bit cinematicSo this book provides greatistory in an engaging story but without much sparkle I am very glad I read it I so very very much Did you know much sparkle I am very glad I read I learned so very very much Did you know the Inuisition began very early in Catalonia Dis you know that people were trading and profiting from the buying and selling of different currencies in the 1300s Did you know that when two serfs were married the master ad the right to sleep with the woman first on the night of their marriage You will not regret reading this book.
