Jerusalem: The Biography
Jerusalem: The Biography
Price: £1.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable, 10 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is another book I will read again at some point in my life. I thought the author did a good job of staying neutral in describing the events that have formed and taken place in Jerusalem. The city's significance in human history is well described and makes for very interesting reading.

Another delightful Bryson book, but reading this one was like re-visiting my own childhood as there were many similarities. Made me smile, but also a bit sad because life is just not like that anymore, particularly for children.

I'll be adding this one again. Really, really interesting and generated a desire to go out and read more books on these subjects.

Glad I read this. Nothing's more despicable than someone gaining money behind the ruse of raising it for charitable works and not actually using the money to do the good work described.

I was very young when Ali was fighting and was unaware of most of the other things he did in his life. Reading this book was an eye-opener for me and I now have the utmost respect and admiration for this man. A superb fighter, and a divine human being is revealed in its pages. I like the way that interviews with a wide range of people are included in this book and that it isn't simply a dry run of facts strung together - really works to tell Ali's tale.

So happy to have found all of these works in one volume. A marvellous and sharp-witted, yet compassionate poet. St. George and the Dragon and Olive are poems I have shared with many people over the years and both are contained in this volume.

And a good introduction to Richard Dawkins. And yes, an excellent reminder of how wonderful life is without the need to ascribe its wonder to fictional causes and entities.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dogs love it, 10 July 2013

We have to put it away at night time otherwise the dogs start chasing it around in the early hours of the morning and you hear a constant string of phrases. It's funny though. And we have had it for many, many months and there is no sign of wear and tear - a miracle in our house.

Lots of interesting facts in here and much food for thought over some of the things that drove the creativity behind some of the greatest art and literature the world has seen to date.

You should just spend a bit more money and get a bigger phone as this one is too small even for kids to use easily. Features are fine, but it's dinky.
