I hope Marco Polo was a better explorer than he was a writer, because this was not good. I’m now going to tell you what was bad. The writing. I’ve now told you what was bad. The booklet is filled with these completely unnecessary sentences where Polo explains what he is going to say in the next or has said in the last paragraph. Maybe the people of his time had a short attention span, but it really annoyed me.
Also, unicorns in this supposedly non-fiction report.
