The Decameron is a collection of novellas by the 14th-century Italian author Giovanni Boccaccio (1313–1375). The book is structured as a frame story containing 100 tales told by a group of seven young women and three young men sheltering in a secluded villa just outside Florence to escape the Black Death, which was afflicting the city. Boccaccio probably conceived the Decameron after the epidemic of 1348, and completed it by 1353. The various tales of love in The Decameron range from the erotic to the tragic. Tales of wit, practical jokes, and life lessons contribute to the mosaic. In addition to its literary value and widespread influence (for example on Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales), it provides a document of life at the time. Written in the vernacular of the Florentine language, it is considered a masterpiece of classical early Italian prose.

One who votes down a freebie is one who does not know, understand or care about the product. This is how it is. This is life. This is indeed a worthy product.

I'm not so sure. If someone knows a product is utter crap and that someone else will be wasting their time if they download and use the product, then they should say so. Just because something is free, it does not necessarily mean it is a good deal.

That doesn't apply here. I've only read an abridged version of the Decameron, and what I read was mostly very good. But, in general, people should downvote even freebies if they are not worth the time needed to invest in them.

Thank you Boz!

No longer free (although only 92p)
