"Susan" wrote:I read Needle in the Blood several years ago and had to order it through the Book Depository because it was not available in the US. It was the book of the month at this site in February, 2009. Back then I wrote: "I did like the exposition of the plot, but I thought the book got weaker as it went on. I did like the Bayeux Tapestry part, but the romance (actually the lust) of Odo and Gytha bored me. I wanted to know more about the embroiderers and was upset when their stories were put on the back burner. There was way too much of Odo and Gytha rolling around in bed and not enough substance to their romance. I didn't dislike the book, but I was somewhat disappointed."
I got a copy from the library a couple of years ago. I didn't get very far.
