Stick to TV

A few good moments but mostly sarcastic polemic on 'global warming'. After about 10 minutes we switched to music.

A Fast Paced Good Read

Kept me in its grip from chapter to chapter. Lots of good history and references to current Russia.

This is a shame

This author of such gripping historical novels turns to history and cranks out a rather boring book with frequent intrusion of his opinions on current world events. A man with a disappointing naive view of these events.

A Fascinating Tale told rather poorly

Not a very interesting narrative. The historical figure is worthy of more investigation in the West, as he is one of the fathers of Arab anti-semitism. I do hope someone gives us a better version of the tale.

Can't stop listening

This is as much fun as it is improbable. Based on the legend of Longinus, the author blends Ben Hur and the best of that ilk into a great adventure tale. I am truly addicted to the series.

Tendentious scholarship

A good job of research but ruined by intrusion of doctrinaire Marxism. Still a good read.

What a Waste

Overall
1 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 08-24-07

A pitiful anti-Israel diatribe by the worst president of the 20th century. Charming language but hardly an objective description of the situation. To equate Israel's border with apartheid is simple ridiculous. The author should go back to building houses and leave politics alone
