This book was absolutely amazing. There are no other words to describe this amazing source of literature. The novel starts from the stone age and the development of civilization and then spirals its way up time all the way to the year 2,000 c.e. I found this book not only interesting historically (because I am history obsessed) but also just plain, old smart. The title explains it all, the novel carries one through history not in the old fashioned textbook way, but through the eyes of the people living at the time. One doesn't even have to read the entire novel, each chapter and section will bring them back in time and surround them in the knowledge that will enlighten anyone from the very first page. I know that I, personally, will be using this book as a great source for future learning. The novel's writing is so sophisticated and to the point without any biased opinions that might appear in other world reference sources. I would recommend this book to anyone, young and old. This novel is a must-read. I cannot say how amazing this novel is with words, one just has to read and see it for themselves.
