This is one of those books that left me feeling lukewarm. Nice descriptions of Venice, the food and the culture of the people who lived during the Renaissance but the writing and the plot left much to be desired. The writing was just to juvenile for my taste it read to much like a children's book. Page turner I don't think so.
Anyone with religious views may actually find this book blasphemous as we all know the Bible including the Gnostic writings are all open to interpretation.
