    2. 1st, I m a fan of historical fiction, but I don t like to read lectures While the action portions of this one were exciting and kept moving, the parts between got to be too much history 2nd, I adore Venice, but the history lessons of the state got in the way of the city Even a gondola ride to view the city was about what caused this or that ediface to be built and less about the buildings themselves.
