Incredible Story with Too Much Detail
Reviewed in the United States on November 12, 2020
The core story here is fascinating and there are great details that make the story more interesting but there is a limit to how much detail one can care about or absorb. When a minor character is introduced there is no need to know their entire back story if not relevant. There was an entire digression to South America mining for gold that if left out would not have been missed. For “complete history” five stars, for being judicious about what needed to be included two stars.
