I personally got bored of Ben Elton's style half way through this book - I find that all of the books of his that I have read are very similar (in that he makes the same jokes, not that the story is the same). The story was quite good but I don't think it was good enough to get me through Elton's repetitiveness!
The book reads like a historical book. Lots of names, places, people, things are described. Once you get by that fact, and keep the names straight, it does have a very good story to it. I think it's hard to start reading for that fact, plus it's written in old english. Which can be hard to get into. It took me 3 tries before I actually read it all the way through.
