Thomas Perry · 3 review The Book of the Lion review Ë 3 When Professor Dominic Hallkyn receives an anonymous phone call late one night from a voice claiming to possess a priceless Chaucerian manuscript presumed lost forever he doesn't know how to reactSuch a find could irrevocably alt. Even though it can get pricey to grab them all I do love this series not only for the plots but it has introduced me to a few mystery authors that were new to me FYI Some libraries have them in their digital collection including Freading so check them if cost is an issue for such short booksstoriesThis one based on Chaucer was really great thanks to reminding me that I need to A go to the Huntington Library to check out their copy because although I ve been there often when I lived nearby I never knew that they had what is not now thought to be the second copy and B I adored The Canterbury Tales in high school even though the language was challenging WARNING PERSONAL STORY AHEAD When I was in elementary school I chipped my front tooth I m not going into how it happened because it was stupid and embarrassing With braces and everything soon following my parents were loath to have it capped until they knew I wouldn t do something stupid again Still it was embarrassing as a teen until my English teacher Sister Anne while teaching this book laughingly compared one student or another to each of the characters in the story Because of my tooth I became the one she choose for the lustful gap toothed Wife of Bath which was hilarious coming from the rather straight laced yet polio stricken Sister Anne She used specialized crutches and wore her disability with honor which made it easier for all of us to see out various imperfections in a new light For her to point out the chip in my tooth and compare it to the lustful ideas of what a gap tooth was thought to mean in the middle ages was so over the top that I wore it with pride until the day I finally got it capped So that is why I loved The Canterbury Tales and Sister Anne may she rest in peace I haven t asked but haven t seen her in reunion photos so I m assuming that she s no longer with usBack to the story what could be enticing to a professor of the literature of the Middle Ages than a huge find of another of Chaucer s work that was thought to be lost Nothing Luckily the professor has rich friends and is able to pull together the money to buy it for later donation to a library Things go awry however as they always do in a mystery and a huge dreamI loved that the professor had kept friends from his own school days and that even better that friend happened to be a literature lover with deep pockets in an emergency Seriously I talk to no one from my college days I m horrible at keeping in touch so this made me jealousIt was a fun read with a great twist at the end For someone that tends to loathe short stories for their lack of depth this was a refreshing change I apologize for the personal story even if it was a great example of how a teacher can not only build self esteem and confidence but make you love really tough literature
