I don't think it's DW at his best, by any means. While he certainly wrote well about historical settings, he wasn't a good writer about history. When he's got a neat plot going, you don't so much mind the info dumps, but I'm amazed at the contemporary reviews that called this book "sparkling" and the like. (Maybe it was the carefully phrased racy bits...)
