I've been meaning to see what that book is like. It certainly looked interesting in the trailer

I read it and it wasnt quite what I was expecting. Its more like a dramatic representation that shows kinda the "essence" of Brian and what his life was like, but is not meant to be historically accurate. The author basically says he did stuff purely to make the story more dramatic. So, I didnt hate it, it was a decent story, but it wasnt what I was looking for.
