1.0 out of 5 stars Boring, confusing, and boring again, 8 Oct. 2013
This review is from: Danubia: A Personal History of Habsburg Europe (Hardcover)
This book is one of the worst books I have ever read. Not only is it written in a very confusing and boring way, but it also does not have anything behind it. There are some very dry facts, which are supposed to give the reader some information about the Hapsburg dynasty. Even these tidbits are gossip, confusing, and there are no footnotes or any notes to verify the author's claims.
This is such a boring book and such a big shame that it may serve as a sleeping pill for those of you who cannot sleep. But after you have woken up, you will keep wandering why you had ever wanted to spend your hard-earned money on some worthless piece. Unfortunately I cannot give this book less than one star. O tempora, O mores! Cave canem!

This review is one of the worst reviews I have ever read. Not only is it written in a very unenlightening and boring way, but it also does not have anything behind it (other than some gratuitous schadenfreude - a little German traded for your clever bugger weltschmertz Latin soundbites.) There are some very sour comments, which are supposed to give the reader some information about the book but which actually leave one groping for the lifebelts of the mainly positive reviews after being almost drowned under this effluence. Those reviewers opened the parcel and savoured the contents; you didn't get past the wrapping paper.

Indeed, during the morning after I often wonder "why ( I ) had ever wanted to spend ( My ) hard-earned money on some worthless piece". But I have never woken up "wandering" and look forward to doing so.

Sleep wandering, perhaps?
