    From the schism between Rome and Constantinople to the rise of the T'ang Dynasty, from the birth of Muhammad to the crowning of Charlemagne, this erudite book tells the fascinating, often violent story of kings, generals, and the peoples they ruled.

    Story

    Good though a bit windy at times where should have moved on and other times felt I wanted more detail but it kept me entertsined. I did not like the main characters trip to SF. just when she is likable she does something totally dumb. I get the argument for why this happens but be careful when trying to establish a generally stereotype character.

    One hundred years ago, scientists would have said that lasers, televisions, and the atomic bomb were beyond the realm of physical possibility. In Physics of the Impossible, the renowned physicist Michio Kaku explores to what extent the technologies and devices of science fiction that are deemed equally impossible today might well become commonplace in the future.

    Samantha says: "Huge fan of Michio Kaku!!"

    enjoyed it. was not over my head and I think really written for avg person. I do find some of it a bit flighty but suppose that is good too since it gives a flavor of the msin,players in physics.

    1347 is a year of war and unrest. England’s army is fighting in France, and the Scots are invading from the North. Thomas of Hookton, sent back to England to follow an ancient trail to the Holy Grail, becomes embroiled in the fighting at Durham. Here, he meets a new and sinister enemy, a Dominican Inquisitor, who, like all of Europe, is searching for Christendom’s most holy relic. It is not certain the grail even exists, but no one wants to let it fall into someone else’s hands.

    Story

    Great story over-all though a bit cheeky at times. while I enjoyed the humor it did seem a bit forced and predictable. (almost as if writing for a screen play and not a novel. with that said I won't fault it for that. I do really enjoy the novel by Cornwell.
