I'm disappointed with this book. It looks so fascinating and then it's just... random. I did enjoy the parts about early Slavic writing, Constantine & Methodius, etc., since those are things I am familiar with and I rarely encounter them outside of class, but large parts of this book I think I ended up skimming through. The amount of random sayings and happenings is just too great for me. The dream catcher idea was kind of neat, and the ending with the letters and the trial wasn't too bad, but overall? Boring.
