    It was OK regarding the narrative style and the richness of vocabulary It was a little hard for me to keep going with this old book, especially because of its Middle Age s language The language have dramatically changed I confess that there was some sentences I couldn t understand at all, so I had to skip on them The story was nice even if some parts were so boring and annoying.
