5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best books I've ever read, 23 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gone (Kindle Edition)
I really liked the plot at the beginning and how at the beginning they were all in different settings. It was also good because it had some kind of common theme throughout the Coates Kids and the Perdido Beach Kids

5.0 out of 5 stars Why isn't this on the television?, 28 Sept. 2010
We see so many celebrities swanning around the world on trains, pointing at horses or chuckling at meerkats just so BBC1 can show some nice travelogue pictures on a Sunday night. But they would be put to better use making a programme based on this book. This is a great mix of geography and history - landmarks of world history is the subtitle - showing us 35 places on earth where momentous events have taken place, from Thermopylae to the World Trade Centre. Each is very clearly and concisely described by Ben Dupre, so that you really get a feel for the location and its significance. I wish I'd read the entry on Thermopylae before I saw 300 and not after - I would have better understood what all the shoving and stabbing was about. The range of places from the ancient world to the ultra modern would make it the perfect vehicle for someone like David Mitchell or Stephen Fry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Enjoyable, 28 Sept. 2010
This doesn't have the narrow focus of Ben Dupre's excellent book on philosophy, which makes it all the more impressive that he has brought together such a wide variety of big ideas and grand theories into a very enjoyable collection, with his style and precision. There will be countless readers relieved at last to understand those long words ending in ism which they have been bandying about for years.
