This is obviously a /good/ book, but I can't say I enjoyed it, really. First, it's HUUUUGGE - a big tome, meant for a deep immersion in a so-historical-it-feels-like-fantasy world. The author has done so much research about 7th-century britain, and she throws you in the deep end with a slew of undefined foreign words. It's the same feeling you get in a scifi when the author is proud of their fantasy world-building.
I'd love to read the condensed version of this book, I think, but as it was I gave up 75% of the way through.
