the subject of this story had one of those lives that truly meets the description of extraordinary, even with the knowledge that rumor exaggerates.
and this story was just so damn passive.
yes, i admit it. i wanted adventure, romance, intrigue, and revenge. what i got instead were almost wistful recollections of days gone by.
the author definitely respects the subject of this story, and i'm glad to have read it. but i remain let down due to what this story could have been.
