There are periods of history when chain of events seem to accelerate. As a conductor, Voltaire takes you through a whirlwind of events and becomes the Herodotus of the Century that preceded him. A multitude of battles, civil wars, intrigues and a cast of thousands. What also Saint-Simon has is a sense for detecting in the life of its characters, those that have the most potential for soap operas. Truly epic. ( )
