    The reading of the book was a homework for my son. Since I've not read the book, and don't have time to actually sit down and read it, decided to get it here... loved it!! And my son loves it too!! Not only I'll be able to help my child with his homework, but I've learned a lot while enjoying a good 'history' class. I know it is a novel, but many details are not novel, are facts.
