My only problem with the book- I suppose- and this is a minor one) is that Huxley often wander off into personal comment and philosophical musings about the nature of good and evil and other personal asides which I think add nothing to the narrative; indeed I think they detracted from the flow of the story. Still, all in all, this story of a judicial murder and one is tempted to say mass hysteria in Baroque France well deserves its reputation as a classic of the genre of historical fiction or - rather- dramatized history in the tradition of Capote's "In Cold Blood."
