Review

“A fittingly vast and dazzling portrait of Jerusalem, utterly compelling from start to finish.” —The Sunday Times (U.K.)


From the Hardcover edition.

Review

If you want to understand the Middle East, read this. GOOD BOOK GUIDE 20120101 ...astoundingly ambitious and triumphantly epic history of the city. The Daily Telegraph 20120303 Full of faith, power, slaughter and fanaticism; this is a unique chronicle, balanced and critical and wonderfully entertaining. -- Chris Burgess The Examiner (Ireland) 20120303 This is a city that has survived Hell, and Montefiore takes you to the heart of it. -- James Cleary The Northern Echo 20120305 Magnificent. -- Stephen Lewis The York Press 20120310 ...never a dull moment -- David Bradbury Daily Mail 20120323 ...as entertaining as it is elucidating. It's a history that is sharply paced as a novel and fairly brims over with sparkling writing. Sunday Businesss Post 20120318 ...heterogenous, sprawling, erudite and touched by genius Catholic Herald 20120224 A fittingly vast and dazzling portrait of Jerusalem, utterly compelling from start to finish. -- Christopher Hart THE SUNDAY TIMES Outstanding, superbly objective, elegantly written and highly entertaining -- Saul David MAIL ON SUNDAY Simon Sebag Montefiore's history of Jerusalem is a labour of love and scholarship... a considerable achievement... he has a wonderful ear for the absurdities and adventurers of the past... totally gripping... vivid compelling, engaged, engrossing, knowledgeable -- Barnaby Rogerson THE INDEPENDENT Compelling and thought-provoking...Working on an immense chronological and thematic canvas Sebag Montefiore does his subject more than justice. He narrates the terrible history of Jerusalem vividly and graphically... fascinating but ghastly. -- Munro Price THE SUNDAY TELEGRAPH Anyone with an interest in history should read this, if only to be reminded of just how much history has rolled back and forth over this pile of stones between 1458 and today. In fact, when compared with the carnage visited on it by the Romans, Crusaders, Albanians and, in the 12th century, the teenage King of Norway, the last 100 years there have been relatively peaceful. -- David Hepworth THE WORD MAGAZINE It is a gripping read, told with verve and fluency, and explains why Jerusalem, like a living person, has touched the heart of so many cultures, East and West, for so long. -- Michael Binyon THE TIMES SATURDAY REVIEW 20120512
