Mr. Hourani, does the arab peoples a disservice by placing their origen at the 7th century. A rich and distant heritage should not be ignored. This book would be more aptly titled A History of the Islamic Faith. It is shallow and without the slightest color attributed to its cover. Mostly a long disertation on lineage of leadership. Difficult to get excited about.
This story would have better served by a narrator whose voice is not so distinct. Everyone, I mean everyone, sounds like an old man!! Dotrice seems unable to soften his voice for youth or female. Few charactors are able to stand out for they all sound too similar. A real shame.
Not recommended reading for entertainment. Not bad if you want a history lesson - 30 hours on the history of one city in England. No charactor developement. McCaddon may do better with some material to work with.
If I would have expected less from such a large sellection it would have been better.
I am sure there is a reader out there unable to predict the outcome of almost every story.
I liked the Scott's accent. But no one was outstanding.
Mr. Strobel has left no doubt shrouded rock unturned in presenting this argument. He researches this theory with a fine scientific examination of the facts and presents his ideas clearly. Very thought provoking and definitly worth the read over and over.
