5.0 von 5 Sternen The ultimative book on European history, 10. September 2009
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Europe: A History (Taschenbuch)
The sheer magnitude of the author's knowledge is staggering - this is a life's work. For a history buff like me, this is"an "everything I ever wanted to know and didn't even think to ask...". It's more of a nightstand book than a pageturner, as there is so much information one has to absorb, but neither it is a droll book written for an academic audience. It is interesting, informative and I especially like the in-depth side explanations of various topics (such as what is "Ukraina"). I highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in history.

5.0 von 5 Sternen You have to own this book, 6. Oktober 2006
If you ever had a crisis along the lines of "what do I really want? why is stuff happening to me? what is my purpose? how to be happy? how to find (inner) peace?" and kept a journal, it could have been turned into this book. If, of course, you were as great of a writer as Elizabeth Gilbert is. I read this book in 3 days, and then twice again. I underlined a lot of stuff that deeply resonated with me. Gilbert made me laugh (she's witty), I was moved (she is not afraid to show her vulnerability), touched (she's honest), consoled (she figured a lot of things out), given hope (she shows that even bad things happen for a reason), given lots of food for thought (she's a deep, original thinker), and so many times thought "oh yes, I've been there, too!" Gilbert is an excellent writer, and her book will have you spellbound. It's deep, it's spiritual, yet entertaining and a real pageturner. I've ordered several copies for my friends as gifts, and everyone wrote that this book is a true revelation and a joy (and a "can't put it down"). Buy it. It's one of those you'll keep rereading over and over again.
