3.0 out of 5 stars This Is Not an Introductory Book on Judaism November 24, 2014
By JJares
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Obviously, my aim in reading this book did not fit the style of this volume. I wanted to learn about Jewish religion and history and this book seemed to assume the reader knew lots about both and seemed to summarize a few hundred years of history.

It made this book difficult to understand; if there had been a few maps to help a newbie along, I think I could have absorbed more. However, the story was told in a vacuum; I needed some history behind the history told in this book.

Because my low understanding was probably my own fault, I gave the book a 3 star rating.

1.0 out of 5 stars Stilted Language, Difficult to Follow Information July 12, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Informative but very difficult to read. The information was somewhat helpful, however, the writing was stilted and difficult to follow. I plowed through the book and was able to gleen a small bit of background history about the Maccabees but I would not do it again. I'm sure there are better written books available that provide a history of the time.
