I'm not really sure what I thought of this book. I found I had to read it in small pieces - maybe to try to digest the contemplative and philosophical musings of Fra Mauro. I think the author did a good job regarding capturing the possible thoughts of a monk accomplishing his life's work in seclusion in a monastery.

This was a difficult book to read and like dancing-dog I had to read it in small amounts. It is about a monk Fra Mauro who is a mapmaker and he gets all his info from visitors who tell him about their fantastic travels.
