Cameron liked it. Ani hated it. I found too many incorrect statements for my liking.

Talen likes it so far. I had his Opa, who was a history major, review it and he thought it was a great book. I am planning to add in some original texts as well to cement it. It is actually Talen's favorite subject right now.

I can't remember now and I sold it months ago. She uses some legends and mingles them with facts and then there are some things where she is just plain wrong. I know there are lists of the inaccuracies out there.

I have read about the inaccuracies, and that is why I plan to add in some real books to cement it all. I have read reviews from various historians, half love the book and half don't. I think it goes that way for any history book though, I haven't seen one yet without a few inaccuracies.
