Reviews

Need French and some history to really understand


(4 stars)

This is an interesting book, and this was a well, read audio book. But as I don't speak or hear the French language, ran into some poems getting the context of manof the people ot situations. I was well read, Nd the fault is mine here., not the book or reader. Ill get a text with footnotes and try again.
