The title is a bit of a bait and switch. While it's a really interesting book and it provided a lot of information on Jerusalem prior to the revolts and razing, much of the book was about the struggle between James and Paul over how to define Jesus a ...more

What a clever idea. I just the nuts and bolts of the plot captivated me. Maybe I'm just not the ideal audience, but the world-building felt like a rather dated science fiction movie.

Terry Pratchett
“The office of Master of Traditions had fallen inevitably on Ponder Stibbons, who tended to get all the jobs that required someone who thought that things should happen on time and that numbers should add up.”
Terry Pratchett

Joe Abercrombie
“If you have a plan," hissed Sumael from the corner of her mouth, "now would be the time."

"I have a plan," said Nothing.

"Does it involve swords?"

A pause. "All my plans do."

"Do you have a sword?"

Another. "No."

"How will you succeed without one?" Muttered Sumael.

A third. "Death waits for us all.”
Joe Abercrombie, Half a King

John Scalzi
“Here's a quick rule of thumb: Don't annoy science fiction writers. These are people who destroy entire planets before lunch. Think of what they'll do to you.”
John Scalzi

Douglas Adams
“I love deadlines. I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by.”
Douglas Adams, The Salmon of Doubt

Terry Pratchett
“The reason that the rich were so rich, Vimes reasoned, was because they managed to spend less money.

Take boots, for example. He earned thirty-eight dollars a month plus allowances. A really good pair of leather boots cost fifty dollars. But an affordable pair of boots, which were sort of OK for a season or two and then leaked like hell when the cardboard gave out, cost about ten dollars. Those were the kind of boots Vimes always bought, and wore until the soles were so thin that he could tell where he was in Ankh-Morpork on a foggy night by the feel of the cobbles.

But the thing was that good boots lasted for years and years. A man who could afford fifty dollars had a pair of boots that'd still be keeping his feet dry in ten years' time, while the poor man who could only afford cheap boots would have spent a hundred dollars on boots in the same time and would still have wet feet.

This was the Captain Samuel Vimes 'Boots' theory of socioeconomic unfairness.”
Terry Pratchett, Men at Arms: The Play
