For those interested in Judea during the period of the Jewish rebellion and the destruction of the temple (67-70), this book is a must-read. Harry Freedman's grasp on the period's political climate, religious factions, and everyday life for both Romans and Jews is simply amazing. He weaves these facts into a narrative that really puts the reader in the scene. In addition, Freedman helps the reader understand both the diversity of ancient Judea as well as the diversity within Judaism in that era. ...more
“Jerusalem Imperilled” takes you back to Jerusalem circa 67 A.D., in Roman-occupied Judea. As stated in the book’s description, the story is told by Levi, a young man sold into slavery shortly after his wedding day. He ends up in Rome, penning his story as he hears it from slaves and others who come ashore at the dock he oversees.

I’ve not been a big fan of historical fiction but I decided recently I need to broaden my interests. I’m glad I did; Jerusalem Imperilled is a fascinating and engaging

Containing nearly 2,000,000 words in thirty seven volumes, it covers topics as diverse as law, faith, medicine, magic, ethics, sex, humour and prayer. It is a highly complex, profoundly logical and frequently impenetrable work with a history like ...more
