One sentence summary: What a whiner.

I can’t say this was a particularly enjoyable book, but it was fascinating, something like a train wreck is fascinating.  It does provide some additional background to the love story of Abelard and Heloise, but that background is not flattering to Abelard.  Egotistical, self-centered, competitive, not someone I really want to know any better.

The translation seems to flow pretty well, and the reader is top notch.

I can’t say I recommend this one, unless you’re a glutton for history.
