Page describes his time among the fanatical Hussites in Bohemia. Condemned by the Pope as heretics, the Hussites dared to defy the might of the Catholic church and the Christian princes of Europe. In response, the Pope ordered their destruction, down to the last child, and the brutal subjugation of their country. Page joins the Hussites just as another crusade is launched against Bohemia. Led by the merciless King Sigismund, known as the Dragon of Prophecy, the crusaders will drown the land in blood rather than let heresy prevail.

Facts. The world just seems to revolve around them, and you never know for sure where they will lead you next. From discovering who actually invented glue, to what various words or names mean, the whole world would be a more boring place if it were not for different facts. Perhaps you wish that you had some of those nuggets of information at your own disposal. Our encyclopedia is crammed full of those small pieces of information that will suddenly make the world seem like a more logical place to live.

Save your life from your stuff with minimalist living. Declutter your home. Live simply. Save money. Learn mental tricks to want what you already have, instead of always craving more. Minimalism doesn't mean you live in a bare apartment and own three shirts. Minimalism means cutting out the things in your life that waste your time, energy and money, so you can spend time on the things you love and cherish most. It's true: Less is more.

Adnan leads a weary existence as a bookshop owner in modern-day, war-torn Baghdad, where bombings, corruption, and assault are everyday occurrences and the struggle to survive has suffocated the joy out of life for most. But when he begins to clean out his bookshop of 40 years to leave his city in search of somewhere safer, he comes across the story of Ali, the Gardener of Baghdad.

As a Man Thinketh is a literary essay and book by James Allen, published in 1903. It was described by Allen as "... [dealing] with the power of thought, and particularly with the use and application of thought to happy and beautiful issues. I have tried to make the book simple, so that all can easily grasp and follow its teaching, and put into practice the methods which it advises. It shows how, in his own thought-world, each man holds the key to every condition, good or bad, that enters into his life, and that, by working patiently and intelligently upon his thoughts, he may remake his life, and transform his circumstances.

The story is a nice combination of a romantic book and a historical fiction. I checked the facts on Wikipedia and all is correct. The Empress is shown as a progressive figure but other described it as conservative. Generally speaking it's a great boot that enriches my knowledge (with fun an passion)

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Unlimited Sparks of a Bonfire?

Any additional comments?

I liked much more the stories than the theologies around them. If it was easier to seperate them it would help

In the 17th century, hundreds of thousands of Europeans endured some of the most barbarous assaults ever lost to history. Until now. As heir to the family estate, young English gentleman Christopher Clive is submissive to his grandfather's grooming, but his heart is drawn to the enchanting Irish muse, Raven O'Morrissey.

What did you love best about The Pursuit of Leviathan?

I loved the atmosphere. The language is very rich - a bit hard for nonnative speakers who listen to it while fighting the Israeli traffic jams but a delight to literature lovers

What about Nick Denton’s performance did you like?

He is very much into the atmosphere of the era

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

The black cliffs of early Ireland
