Christianity IS a part of the story. None of the major Biblical Characters. But the faith, the persecutions, the catacombs are all there.
Boadicea and the Iceni do appear in the story, but only briefly. Nero is there quite a bit. But at least he is not presented as having played the Fiddle while Rome burned.
The story seemed "contrived" to me. It's hard to explain, but throughout all of the events that happened to him, Beric always landed on his feet, suffered very little, was always the leader, never did anything stupid (like the rest of us!). Had he been Irish, I'd have said he must have been born in a Bed of Four Leaf Clovers with a Four Leaf Clover indelibly stamped upon his very existence.
In spite of the above, it was still enjoyable reading. And I DID read the whole Book! The first time!
