No, I don’t mean the city, though it is a fantastic place. Five stars, no question.
I’m talking about a novel. I love historical fiction. As someone who has a degree in both English and History, what, truly, could be better? Fictional characters living through historical events, historical characters portrayed on a fictional platform, historical fiction about historical figures living their historical lives, of them seeking to tell a tale is exactly what I’m here for.
My favorite thing about history is that it’s one, huge, enormous, intricate and delicate story, made up of millions of characters and events, all connected to each other. Everything in history is connected. EVERYTHING.
Which is why Paris by Edward Rutherfurd is a book I can say I really loved.
