Not quite as good as it sounds,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Millennium: The End of the World and the Forging of Christendom (Paperback)
I was really looking forward to reading this title as I have really enjoyed Tom Holland's previous titles 'Rubicon' and 'Persian Fire'. Sadly in my opinion this book didn't live up to those standards.
The language used in the book unfortunately is lofty and distracting from the main narrative and I feel he could of written a more interesting and engaging book given the potential for excellent history and characters within the historical time period the book is based on.
So unfortunately the book isn't going to be one of my keeper's and will be shortly vacating a space in my local charity shop.
