    "I read this book back in college and liked it a lot. However, I found most of the stories too unrealistic and quite frankly unbelievable. I can't say that I enjoyed it but I think some people might like it."

    "I had to read this book for my first year European Literature class in college and it has fascinated me ever since. It is comic satire about feudal European society using animals as stand-ins for the members. It is one that any true Lit fan should read."

    "I've been on the hunt for the best books of the 15th century and have been reading nothing but tales from this time period. Everyman, an otherwise good story by an acclaimed writer, was published just 11 years ago so it clearly doesn't fit the criteria of what I'm looking for right now."

    "This is a wonderful translation of an extraordinary book. Nearly 500 pages of sensual detailed descriptions of fantasy architecture, gardens, and travels along with a short love story. Creates a whole other world. Fun to read aloud. This version of the book is beautiful and very much worth the price."
