It's enthralling and I loved how Faust was a well developed and interesting characters.
The historical background is well researched and vivid.
I loved the mix of elements and I couldn't put it down.
An excellent read, strongly recommended.
Many thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for this ARC, all opinions are mine.
This is a complicated book, as one might assume the story of a man's life might be. People love, die, hate, despair, and help each other. His life is written in segments, clear and distinct. The story takes place before and after the year 1500 and mostly in Germanic states, not that that necessarily makes a difference. He runs into the inquisition, torture, devil worship, itinerant entertainment, higher education and so much more. Johann is a good man who makes mistakes, gets involved with the wrong people, and looks for redemption. It is a compelling and beautifully written story. Johann learns to love and to trust, which are necessary lessons, as well as to take happiness where one can find it. I recommend this book. It is not an easy read. There are things some may find offensive. Much of it is
frightening and sad, but worthwhile.
