This book consists of 106 chapters, which I hadn't listened to on - and it was very well performed. Each chapter has a prologue and then launches into someone's story - such as the nun's priest, the cook, the knight, and so on. A few chapters were - in my opinion - vulgar, many were crude in speech, and most were quite interesting. The amazing thing about this very long story is that it was completely told in rhyme - and good rhyme.

I really didn't think I was going to like this book so I put off reading it for ages. Some of the tales were boring and I found myself drifting off, but some were surprisingly funny and/or just good little stories!

Only interesting or worthwhile for its historical value. Skip it as literature.
