Incredibly disappointing While this book s marketed as popular ntroduction to Parisian history perhaps something lively to read before
a vacation the writing s dull and oftentimes confusing Horne could not decide on anvacation the writing s dull and oftentimes confusing Horne could not decide on an for this book Such a cursory overview of millennia of French history cannot appeal to someone already familiar with the likes of Louis XIV or Napoleon Even so the obliue references to people and events often with no background explanation make the narrative difficult to follow Paris tself ostensibly the central focus of the book An Unlikely Pair (My Once and Future Love, is too often mentioned as an afterthought as Horne spends much of his time discussing the virtues and foibles of monarchs and other greatsnstead Surely there are better histories of Paris but Four Corners Level 1b Workbook if you must read this one have a Paris guidebook and French dictionary ready Wikipedia wouldn t hurt eitherf you Stahl's Illustrated Substance Use and Impulsive Disorders intend on keeping up with Horne s self aggrandizing name droppi I both read and listened to this book over a time period of several weeks and to me a person whos unfamiliar with a great deal of European history I found Love and Punishment (Beyond Fairytales series) it to be a great look at Paris through time I expectedt might be a stodgy read but Crisis: The Anatomy of Two Major Foreign Policy Crises it was surprisingly opinionated and gossipy with lots of little stories that make the people and the movements and the city feel three dimensional Reading this book withts huge bac This review and others can be found at BW Book ReviewsFor me this book was a great big ball of meh I got Angola to Zydeco: Louisiana Lives it from a bookstore because I thoughtt sounded fascinating A historian telling me what he thinks the seven ages of Paris were and what happened during those ages Fascinating A social history Kaltblau in a way all focused on certain ages he noticed through his years of studyThat wasn t this book If anyone knows of a book like that please hit me up I think another reviewer saidt best This book s an aging British scholar s love letter to Paris and t read that way He focused on the rulers and the politics of their reign not the experiences of the people Between Octobers in Paris Instead of a social historyt was a political history And that made Julian 3: The Works of the Emperor Julian it super boring sincet focused on the various rulers rather than what the people feltI found Contemporary Task-Based Language Teaching in Asia it pretty boring and watered down by the opinions of an aged historian Such as he loved assuming the sexuality of various rulers And he s using a definition of homosexuality that was createdn the 1800s and applying The Taming of the Werewolf it to people who were around centuries beforet was created So that s a bad thing to do as a historian You don t apply modern terms to historical people As an example I wouldn t call Joan of Arc transgender because that term wasn t a thing back then even though she shows some signs of Second Biennial Report of the State Board of Health of the State of Iowa: For the Fiscal Period Ending June 30, 1883 (Classic Reprint) it That s not the best example butt s one I could come up with You just don t do that as a "historian And he labeled multiple people as homosexual when they had relationships with women and some of them "And he labeled multiple people as homosexual when they had relationships with women and some of them had kids Yeah He called them homosexual when they were at best bisexualThen he had a bias against Marie Antoinette and he made so many other snide comments that I became exasperated Great he has an opinion but they re not backed up by history And t felt like this was as the reviewer before me put t a love letter to Paris It was terribly boring Especially since Paris sn t my favorite city n the worldIn short I wouldn t recommend this book It s readable and somewhat First Cosmic Velocity interesting at times butt wasn t what I was looking for I should have read some reviews before I went and bought this one but I m glad Philosophy of Psychopharmacology: Smart Pills, Happy Pills, and Pepp Pills it s off my TBR Shes a woman I mean she s femaleAnd she s not just any female She Joshi Mousou Shoukougun, Vol. 4 is of colossal fameA mythical female shesAnd yet she s well alive and exists todayBecause she has presence than you or I have I am talking about resplendent ParisFor f this woman Tryst with Prosperity is outstandingly beautiful and alluring at times she as also been violent and bloodthirsty and this mix of personas has made her eminently enigmatic and mysteriousAlistair Hornen this book traces the history of Paris through what he sees as her Seven Ages As he traces her history we see that her life has evolved around a few celebrated men Or may be Tryst with Prosperity: Indian Business and the Bombay Plan of 1944 it was that these men nee. In this luminous portrait of Paris celebrated historian Alistair Horne gives us the history culture disasters and triumphs of one of the world’s truly great cities Horne makes plain that while Paris may be many thingst s never boringFrom the rise of Philippe Auguste through the reigns of Henry IV and Louis XIV who abandoned Paris for Versail.
