really liked it
Read in November, 2010

This is not a typical history book. The author has put together lives based on composites of people. At first, I was skeptical, but as I read I began to enjoy the snapshots she created of everyday lives in various cultures along the Silk Road. Had I not been reading a lot of other histories of the Silk Road I’m not sure I would have liked it as much. I would have been wondering how much had been fictionalized.
