How'd you like Rules of Civility? That one's sitting near the top of my to-read box.

I liked it; I didn't love it. I did love the setting -- starting in New York City in the wintertime in the 1930's -- but didn't really feel a connection to all of the main characters.

You hated the Mary Boleyn book, didn't you? I should have listened to you! We seem to have similar taste in non-fiction -- I should pay more attention to your reviews. :)
