I did not like this book. The story was harsh and coarse, from the writing to the words to the characters. The storytelling felt forced and I have never been a fan of historical fiction that attempts to use modern words and sensibilities to tell an ancient tale. It somehow reads like a false story for me.

I liked this so much, I plan to listen to it a second time.
