    2. I m in love with Sabatini s writingI started reading this book maybe 8 years ago and finished the first two stories I liked it then, but was swept away with life I wasn t much of a reader then In the past few years I ve started plowing through a lot of books and and consequently have become much fastidious in my reading tastes I remembered this book and finally have had a chance to finish it Reading Sabatini, was like remembering what it was like to not have to try hard to love a book.


    3. Loving the real history of the Borgias.I wonder why they have been so maligned in other historic and literal works
