The Luminist: A Novel by David Rocklin
 
Book Club Recommended
Dark, Interesting, Beautiful
The Luminist

Out of the Flames

This book is not a novel, but the real story of a man who was burned alive for defying the religious "norms" of the time. It is an extremely informative history of catholicism, the reformation, the printing press, medical practices of the time, and book collecting.

I love books like this that are full of information that I wouldn't ordinarily think about.
