One thought on “Jerozolima

  1. Tea Jovanović

    This one of those non fiction books that you read as fiction And the is one of those books that I m most proud of being its editor It took us two years to complete it I don t know any how many times I ve reread it, worrying about every detail with my team Beautiful book about biography of Jerusalem, for those who love history And they don t have to be scholars to enjoy this bookI can call myself the Serbian editor of Montefiore family, since I m Santa s editor as well And this book published rig [...]

    Let me explain my rating This book was extremely hard for me all the way through I knew if I took a break with another book, I would never pick it up again Nevertheless, the book IS informative and I AM glad I read it, but Books of non fiction do NOT have to be this hard to get through It is non fiction books like this that make people think the genre is difficult I protest It need not be so, and say this with my one star rating Later changed to two because I did learn about the city s history I [...]

    City of the Book My first sight of Jerusalem was in a taxi, driving up from the airport at Tel Aviv It was a winter afternoon in late November, with the sun well down on the horizon The colour tones were all light grey, not drab, just grey upon grey, dramatically punctuated by a brilliant flash of gold from the Dome of the Rock it was almost as if I had been allowed the briefest glimpse of the celestial city, Zion itself It was the new city we drove into, with the old beyond, the Turkish walls p [...]

    Jerusalem is a masterpiece 10 stars Read this book.In Jerusalem Simon Sebag Montefiore presents not just a history of the city but of the region and much of the western world One finds that virtually every prophet and charlatan, king, queen, prince and despot, priest, politician, conquerer and crusader in recorded history has some connection to the city and has often trod its streets Jerusalem is the center of three of the world s religions yet until the 1900s was rarely larger than a small town [...]

  5. Mike

    Jerusalem is a fascinating city Holy to Jews, Christians, and Muslims it has at times been the center of internaational intrigue, conflict, and reverence and at other times a forgotten backwater pile of rocks Its history stretches over thousands of years and has been the subject of countless prayers, hopes, dreams, and aspirations It has inspired awe of the divine and hatred for our fellow human Its history is the history of East meeting West, of religion and realpolitik, of imperialism and indi [...]

  6. WarpDrive

    A very detailed, in depth history of one of the most complex, troubled, emotionally and religiously intense cities of the world, the ideological center of all three Abrahamic religions An emotionally exhausting tour, spanning across millennia of war, pilgrimage, cooperation and coexistence, fanaticism, corruption, mysticism and enlightenment The history of Jerusalem is the history of the World, it has been stated, and I definitely see some merit in this statement The weight of history feels over [...]

    To try and tackle the history of one of the most famous cities in the world, in one book, is not the easiest of writing challenges, but Montefiore has had a pretty good go at it He has tried to cover from the very earliest references to relatively recent events, and this has made this a very substantial book indeed I won t try and surmise all 600 plus pages into a couple of paragraphs would be nigh on impossible, but suffice to say Montefiore has filled these pages with immense amounts of detail [...]

  9. Carlos

    4 1 2 stars actually This book was massive in it s scope and reach, the best sentence to summarize it and get a sense of The amount of work and the nuances that went into this book comes from the book itself Jerusalem s history is a chronicle of settlers, colonists and pilgrims, who have included Arabs, Jews and many others, in a place that has grown and contracted many times During than a Millennium of Islamic rule, Jerusalem was repeatedly colonized by Islamic settlers, scholars, Sufis and pi [...]

  10. Bou

    If there s one city that needs a biography, it must be Jerusalem In a highly readable style, Simon Sebag Montefiore takes us on a tour from the earliest recorded history to today s Jerusalem.The history of Jerusalem is a chronicle of colonists and pilgrims, whether they are Arab, Jew or Christians The city itself witnessed a large amount of different masters, each with their own beliefs and each thinking they were the true and only religions Nowhere in the world did so many people die on account [...]

    Review to followwhen I have the energy to compile all my feelings, beyond the fact that i didn t like it A month laterI still don t have the energy to write a full review for this book There are some good points the sheer amount of research, the wealth of facts, the non bias of religion The bad points it reads like a textbook, there is too much information at times and it needed condensing, other parts felt dealt with too swiftly and left me wanting , the bits I enjoyed best were not really to d [...]

  12. Grumpus

    Two distinct ideas came to mind as I listened to this one Since I could not weave them into one coherent treatise I thought I d share them both.Commentary 1 If you like John Lee as a narrator, this book is possibly for you If you like your history dense, this book is probably for you If you wonder why this area continues to be so f ed up, this book is likely for you.Sadly, Jerusalem s history has been determined by dynamite, sword, and blood It s violent past has earned it the moniker, The maim, [...]

  13. Nick Van der Graaf

    Jerusalem The Biography is Simon Sebag Montefiore s sprawling history of the world s holiest and possibly most cursed city Sacred to the three Abrahamic religions and the current centre of an ongoing religious political military dispute which shows no sign of ever being resolved, Jerusalem s history is a mad mix of devastation, pilgrimage, hucksterism and blood drenched fanaticism Montefiore does an excellent job of stringing it all together, weaving a tale of considerable complexity into someth [...]

    Read by John LeeTel Dan SteleTitus has just plundered then razed the city, a bit like the young one playing soldiers on the kitchen table Anthony HopkinsWiki sourced The Arch of Titus is a 1st century honorific arch located on the Via Sacra, Rome, just to the south east of the Roman Forum It was constructed in c 82 AD by the Roman Emperor Domitian shortly after the death of his older brother Titus to commemorate Titus victories, including the Siege of Jerusalem in 70 ADPERB The best I have read [...]

  15. Hadrian

    Another impressive work by Mr Montefiore, detailed the extremely long and vivid history of one of the world s most famous cities into a very readable and flowing history, from King David, to David Ben Gurion, and beyond.

  16. Anatoly

    A very interesting read which encompasses pretty much the entire historical scope of this unique city The main downside was pretty much due to that Montefiore tried to write little about lots of events, even those who are not that important when looking on Jerusalem s broader history It would have been better to write only about the major events and times That being said, this book is quite an achievement, and though I m familiar with a lot of the history regarding Jerusalem this was quite an in [...]

  17. Drew

    This book was an ambitious undertaking Montefiore, in the end, does an OK job The book is really slow to start off and there seemed to be a lot of holes in his storytelling The first 2 3 of the book comes across as choppy and poorly written There are gaps in the history and, at times, his writing comes across as awkward In this portion of the book, he is essentially telling a history of war in Jerusalem, which is certainly important, but not the whole story for sure I would have loved to have he [...]

  18. Kiersten

    Wow This book was intense It was an incredible overview of the history of Jerusalem, beginning with King David and wrapping up with Zionism in the 20th Century It is a long book, coming in at 650 pages, after the bibliography and notes, but I actually wish it had been longer, or a set of several volumes There is so much history here, and the thought of all the research that Montefiore must have put into writing this makes me exhausted, but I felt like I was barely skimming the surface One exampl [...]

  19. Gavin

    Jerusalem The Biography , as the name would suggest, is an in depth biographical history of the Holy City of Jerusalem It addresses a wide range of themes, other than just pure chronological historical narrative Namely, religion encompassing the rise of faiths, and their battle for the city , politics, trade, population booms and declines etc In other words, it examines all the facets required to get a picture of the city at any given time in its long history and it does this with remarkable cla [...]

  21. Femj86

    Overall a good read History is always partial and I expected the author to be biased towards Jews, as a book written by a Muslim or a Christian writer on such a sensitive topic would be equally susceptible to bias in favor of their own communities Was this book biased Not flagrantly so It may have been, but it was done so subtly that I couldn t really tell A reader better acquainted with the history of Judaism, Islam and Christianity can perhaps identify better Regardless, the story itself was s [...]

  22. Shawn

    This is a very in depth overview of the history of Jerusalem The great benefit of the book is gaining a better understanding of the catalyst for current conflicts in Jerusalem today The historical claims to the City and parts of the City are so diversified as to diminish the hope for sustained peace The fervent nature of diversified worship is quite amazing, especially when read from an overview, or broad perspective It is quite amazing that so many people put so much of their worship energy int [...]

    I listened to an abridged version this as an audiobook when I was driving on my own over the last three weeks or so Despite the difficulties imposed by this regime sometimes five minute snatches I have been interested most of the way and will retain a memory of thousands of years of violent warfare as armies marched through Israel Palestine laying waste to everything as they went, as well as the vicious battles over Jerusalem itself since the first of the Crusades launched by Western Europeans a [...]

  24. David

    Hard to pick up Hard to put down It presents an exhaustive history of the city of Jerusalem from earliest times up through the 20th century, written by a learned person with personal ties into the history of the past century.However the book has a broad coverage than just the city of Jerusalem, for it includes the military, political and sociological influence of Jerusalem on all of Western civilization So although the city is the central character in the drama, the story teller includes a huge [...]

  25. K

    Hmm This was a nicely flowing layman s history of Jerusalem, over the 4,000 or so years from the time King David consecrated it as his capitol until 1967 The writing was easy to read, and Sebag Montefiore peppered the narrative with a healthy dose of salacious historical gossip to keep the reader going when things ran dry.It was, however, a very long and detailed read, a mixture of the relevant and the less relevant, and a non academic work which means it needs to be taken with a grain of salt, [...]

  26. Laurence O'Bryan

    Ok, I am 250 pages in and I love every word This is a book I will be sorry to finish.I m on page 410 now I have to force myself to stop reading, as I want to eek out the last 100 pages slowly very slowly.It is that good.I have now completed the book It is, by far, one of the best books I have ever read It is also only the second book I have ever read which I wanted to read again as soon as I finished it Every page was a delight.

  27. Gary

    Simon Sebag Montefiore s acclaimed and bestselling history of Jerusalem is an intriguing read, full of interesting lesser known facts, personages and new angles At times, it reads almost like a well paced novel, and is as hard to put down Certainly, it provides a timely, as well as carefully balanced, account of this extraordinary city s long history, from the earliest times to the present day.The prologue of this heavy volume begins with the destruction of the Second Temple and genocide of Jeru [...]

  28. Hermien

    Fascinating I discovered I was listening to the abridged audiobook, keen to try to full length version next time.
