    I felt this novel of the Fall of Constantinople was intended for young people It was a good narrative and gave motivations to both protagonists, Constantine and Mehmet Constantine s wanting to save the city at all costs, and Mehmet, to conquer the city something no predecessor had been able to do The history was accurate for the most part, except for Constantine s fictional mistress and his good friend not being what he was historically I liked the explanation of the city and of the charact I felt this novel of the Fall of Constantinople was intended for young people It was a good narrative and gave motivations to both protagonists, Constantine and Mehmet C...

    To be fair this book is better than a I thought it would be That doesn t mean it was good Beyond committing the highly fashionable but still damnable sin of shoehorning a fictional and pointless romance, the author did not endow any character with a firm tone, or provide them with any serious development Ripped from the text of Barabaro s chronicle, its efforts at story telling are at best merely dry and at worst insipid Neither insightful nor inspired, character relations are boring and dep To be fair this book is better than a I thought it would be That doesn t mean it was good Beyond committing the highly fashionable but still damnable sin of shoehorning a fictional and pointless romance, the author did not endow any character with a firm tone, or provide them with any serious development Ripped from the text of Barabaro s chronicle, its efforts at story telling are at best merely dry and at worst insipid Neither insightful nor inspired, character relations are boring and depart from the historical narrative, which in nearly all cases are bothinteresting and compelling than those designed by the author Drawing from such a rich moment in history the author is notable for presenting it so blandly His treatment of his...

    This is a good read, very well written Funnily enough I didn t really like the title, but that is a small thing It is the story of the siege of Constantinople and that is something I previously knew nothing about The story is very much the story of the siege battles and for that r...
