The Game of Kings - Dorothy Dunnett The Ultimate Guide to Dorothy Dunnett's The Game of Kings - Laura Caine Ramsey

I have given in and downloaded The Ultimate Guide here. I don't normally feel that I need a guide to read a novel, but I'm ashamed to admit that I have no idea what's going on here. Thankfully, this guide is free through the Kindle Owners' Lending Library, so if anyone else in the More Historical than Fiction Book Club is struggling with this one, maybe you can look into this resource too. I have high hopes that it will make the book more enjoyable, or at least more comprehensible.
