Format: Unknown Binding
"The 6,000 Beards of Athos" might have been an interesting book on different levels. Written in 1935 and first published by Leonard and Virginia Woolf's Hogarth Press, it might have provided insight into the lives of the monks of the Holy Mountain, or been a glimpse into the recent history of this Grecian peninsula that has been the home of Orthodox monasteries for over a thousand years. And there are probably some readers who might have wanted it to be a tell-all book detailing monastic dysfunctions (though that wasn't what I was looking for). In any case, I think this book is likely to disappoint. The author is a fair writer and makes every attempt to catalog the details of his trip as accurately as possible (and for that, I'll give the book two stars). But he is so unmoved by anything on Mount Athos -- not the spectacular scenery or the ancient mysteries of Orthodox worship, or even the sordid peccadillos of the weaker monks. It seems clear that Brewster made the voyage equipped with only the mildest curiosity and left without anything have made any real impact on him. For that reason, the book makes no impact on the reader.
