5.0 out of 5 stars ETERNAL CONFLICT, 7 Mar 2012
Superb book, Montefiore at his very best. He shows how from the very beginning Jerusalem has been the centre of conflict and occupied by different peoples/countries. At the same time it became a centre of sensual pleasure for the rich. Fascinating combination!

5.0 out of 5 stars BRILLIANT, 15 Jan 2012
One of the most brilliant books I have read. Montefiore has uncovered a mass of hitherto unknown details on Stalin's youth. Did you know that in his youth Stalin was a choirboy with a superb voice? From being a student training for the priesthood he turned into a hardened criminal? The book, full of detail, is nevertheless an entertaining read.

5.0 out of 5 stars MUSIC TO DISCOVER, 21 Nov 2011
Beautiful music well worth having, even if a little sad (understandably so!). Disgraceful that it is not better known. The orchestral playing and interpretation is also excellent.
