    The Mongol army led by Genghis Khan subjugated more lands and people in 25 years than the Romans did in 400. In nearly every country the Mongols conquered, they brought an unprecedented rise in cultural communication, expanded trade, and a blossoming of civilization.

    It was uninteresting.


    What three words best describe Jonathan Davis and Jack Weatherford ’s performance?

    Competent, clear, straight-forward


    Could you see Genghis Khan and the Making of the Modern World being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Hunter Morgan is intelligent, handsome, and in love with Honor Moran. She has never given any indications that she would accept his marriage proposal, but medical school is over and Hunter needs to make his intentions known. All set to pop the question, he sees her nervously enter a dark alleyway known for ruthless activity. Hunter fears for her safety, and charges into the shadows after her. How could he know that his chivalrous act would launch him two hundred and fifty years into the past?

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes. A friend talked me into listening to this book because I normally don't listen to this genre but I was pleasantly surprised. It is a good story and the female character isn't a damsel in distress or the "strong woman" who goes weak when confronted by her superior male counterpart


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Good ending, neither completely predictable or disappointing


    Which scene was your favorite?

    No one in particular.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    I'd probably rent the DVD


    Any additional comments?

    I thought the narrator was good. She started out a little fast but settled in by the 2nd chapter and her performance of the different characters was excellent
