4.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as its predeccesors, 31 July 2011

This review is from: Millennium: The End of the World and the Forging of Christendom (Paperback)
In his two previous books Tom Holland took us to the worlds of the Roman Republic in Rubicon and the worlds of the Greek city states and Persian empire in Persian fire. With Millenium he takes us to the world of medieval Europe and the rise of Christendom. It is good, no doubt about it, however compared to his previous two books it is a disappointment. It can be confusing sometimes and hard to follow and as it is set roughly over a larger time frame it can be harder to develop a harder narrative. I only hope his next book about the rise of Islam and the Caliphate in his upcoming book is more catching. Still Millenium is to be recommended, just perhaps read the previous two first to get a feel of Holland's narrative. Great just not Amazing
