Edward Rutherfurd ↠ 6 Summary

20th century Generation after generation these families embody the passion struggle wealth and verve of the greatest city in the wor. If you happen to like hauling around 1000 page books with you for weeks you ll love this one Although not in the same league as Ken Follett s Pillars of the Earth and World Without End this is a nice book for Follett fans who are suffering from severe withdrawal symptoms after finishing those two great novels I probably could have done without the first 200 pages I really didn t need to know how the White Cliffs of Dover were formed to lead into the rest of the book but once I got past the first several centuries the book became much interesting It also took a while for me to feel connection with the characters Rutherfurd covers far actual history than Follett I found myself spending a lot of time Googling specific historical events as I read along This book is taking me a long time to read because I wanted to see what the Tower of London looked like I wanted to read about London Bridge I even rented several DVDs that coincided with the time period in the book to get a feel of the culture costumes and setting as I read I don t believe any book has ever engaged me to this degree I certainly wouldn t consider myself a history geek so it is a pleasant surprise that I am truly enjoying learning so much about British history I am looking forward to finally finishing London about 100 pages to go and reading some of the other epics by Rutherfurd After all I ve built up such great arm muscles already Einsteins Generation up such great arm muscles already

    The third book of Rutherford's that I've read of this type Have previously read Sarum and Russka and this book pretty much followed those; nothing really surprising or extraordinary about this bookI suggest read

    I did not like this book and probably won't finish it though I'm 34 of the way through The author goes from life to life through the history of London and because it's such massive history is unable to give details about the characters and environments that I usually adore Because of this lack of detail I feel disconnected from the character

  5. says:

    UPDATE An author certainly can't cover every historical event concerning London in a single volume or perhaps even in a series of volumes However to me Rutherford completely skips over a vital part of London's history a cultural one that had a worldwide impact perhaps as much of an impact as other issues Before

    This was like a cross between a history textbook and One Hundred Years of Solitude It's the history of London since before the Roman invasion till modern times told through life stories of generations upon generations of a few of the same fam

    Ugh Every physical description of a female character began and ended with her breasts Wooden prose stilted dialogue actually the only thing I enjoyed about this book were the descriptions of London as it grew and changed If Rutherfurd had written a story about the city itself rather than bringing characters into it I might have enjoyed it Maybe a better writer will attempt that book

    It's odd to read a 1124 page novel and feel that it's too short This is not a haute literature novel but rather a sprawling ramble through the history of London the terrain and its people made accessible through a series of chronological tales told through the ages As with Sarum Mr Rutherfurd follows different families over the centuries with their stories intertwining due to coincidence marriage and friendship This book genre is terrific f
