The Flames of Florence

It wasn’t what I thought. I thought that it might be a story about Leonardo da Vinci. And about Renaissance Italy which had been something that I am fascinated by for quite a while.

Nothing like it occurs here. I didn’t like the way it never seemed to know what it really wants at the end of the day.

And the story was clear of focus. Even though Renaissance Italy had been anything but dull, especially with a clan as famed as the Medici. And the intrigues that surrounded them, especially in the late fifteenth century where they consolidated power but at the same time begun to lose it.

And the situation of Leonardo. I felt that there were just too many characters and not enough focus on who was important and the main characters.
