This is a fairly dry run through the Crusades, but it explains some of the reasons the Arabs were so ineffective in mounting a resistance to the European invaders. I've tried to read several other books about the Crusades, and this is the only one that held my interest. I was actually kind of sad to finish it and wish there had been more. if you want to learn a little about te Crusades, this is probably a good introductory book.

I enjoyed reading every book written by Mr. Maalouf. His style, historical research and point of views apply to every generation. The book give a ggod idea about the life our ancesters had in Lebanon, the Arab world and Europe. The story is based on facts and realities which date from centuries ago and still apply today. If you are interested in the Crusades, in the history of Lebanon, Jerusalem, the Arab world and Europe, you will find the book a wonderful review and an emotional story to learn from.

I have always been interested by mediaval times and the cruisades, and always made a point of getting books giving both sides of the story, whatever the (hi)story. This book masterly expresses the 'other side' of the story, the side of the local populations as recorded by actual witnesses of the cruisades. It is as well documented as it is enjoyable, for it relates events everyone is somewhat familiar with. For history readers, it may well be the book compelling you to always learn the 'other side' of history!

this book was highly informative and cleared up much of the misconception of the crusaders being the 'good guys' i highly suggest you read this book if you are interested in this time period or just the middle ages
