I went into this book knowing almost nothing about the story of the Man in the Iron Mask (no, I never even saw the movie) or the world in which he lived. Paul’s writing was approachable and great for an ‘Iron Mask’ novice such as myself. The only problem I had though, was that I had to go back and reread quite a few sections to try and keep the people straight. There were a *lot* of people in this book to keep track of and I felt that sometimes they got muddled. But all in all an interested read.
