BEN HUR (in French)



|

The best book i have ever had the pleasure of reading.

Next to the bible of course! i first read this wonderful epic when i was twelve years old. what impressed me most is the authors gift of being able to draw you into the book as though you were a person of that era. the description of various locals were stunning. one could almost smell the orange blossoms. i've reread ben hur several times and see a new beauty i had not seen before each and every time.

The five stars are not for the wordsworth edition

Reader beware: the wordworth edition of ben hur is actually abridged, though the cover says it is not. it is a repreint of an edition they did not know is abridged. unless you want an abridged copy of a book that isn't all that challenging, buy a different version! ben-hur is a great book, o9therwise
