Fascinating insight into the Crusades era, giving a totally different picture to that I picked up at School over 60 yrs ago. In fact no-one has ever explained the conflicts to me in such a stark, bold manner. It now appears logical to me how and why we have such bad blood between the religions in that area, one Pope, Urban (wanting to rule the world).
The Jewish trading history is beautifully portrayed and again puts flesh on the bones of that way of life, walking us through events in a simple but enthralling manner.
My only complaint is that is too short!

the historic cicumstance and conditions were interesting but the life and times of the people and countries never came alive.
As illumination of the feel of 12th cent physical experience and environments it was dry and colourless. shame

Crusades.....my reason for purchase is almost absent and what is there is extremely one sided. I finished it with difficulty against the notion that there must be something coming up.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable reading experience 7 Sept. 2013
By MOTTY FISHMAN - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Excellent attempt of wrapping historical facts with fictional characters. A bit short but makes an an enjoyable reading experience. Fairly accurate as to history but a few facts/dates seemed to be "adjusted" for the story. However, a certain bias is detected throughout the story in favor of Muslims and against Christians.
1.0 out of 5 stars which is the original work? 10 Oct. 2014

This book is found almost entire as a section or chapter of another book by the same author. Did he lose originality or inspiration?

A light, readable and engrossing read. Very light on the Crusades themselves; lacking in substance in that area.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent ! 19 Aug. 2012

This is a very well written book. A grandfather is telling this story. There is a lot to be learned from this book, and it can be read in one seating. I do not know much about the Jews and the crusades, but this book helped me learn a lot of things. It never gets boring. I am looking forward to reading more of his books.

3.0 out of 5 stars more history lesson than novella. 10 May 2012
By Emma - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A v short read, and interesting from a historical viewpoint. It does read more like a lesson than a story and I thought from the beginning it was going to be a bit of an epic, but it dwindled away to an abrupt end. Interesting looking at what else the author had written too.
