    " This is the first book by Conn Iggulgen I read and, I'm happy to say, it was well worth reading. If only the author paid more attention to what and how his characters speak! Of course, he couldn't have made them speak in their native tongues, but still ... why a 13th century AD Tartar warrior would say something like "yack penis"? Yack what?! Are there no English monosyllables with the same meaning available? ("Dick," perhaps?) And why Temujin (an uneducated Mongol, after all, his talents as a leader notwithstanding) speaks with the same voice as a refined and sophisticated Chinese ambassador? Mr. Iggulden makes him to admit that he doesn't know many words used by the Chinese diplomat, but how does Temujin know what "alternative" is, then? Could it be that, after several novels about the ancient Rome he has written, Mr. Iggulden's thinking is still in a Latin "groove," so to speak? "

    " Rather slow to start, this turns out to be a good read that must get accepted as fiction. Iggulden differs sharply with Jack Weatherford on a number of key details in his interpretation of The Secret History of the Mongols. The biggest difference lies in the presentation of Temujin's father who had a far more humble status than Iggulden presents. I would think that could have lent far more drama to the early chapters of the novel. The real conflict between Temujin and Bekter/Begter makes more sense as Weatherford presents it and I can't understand why Iggulden chose to make them full brothers rather than the half brothers they actually were. The relationship between Temujin and Jamuka is important to the development of the growing Genghis and I can't see why it got left out. I suppose Temujin's period of captivity/slavery is reasonably abbreviated from the actual. "

    " I think only Iggulden could write a whole chapter on climbing a cliff-face and make it interesting. "

    " Know it as "Wolf of the Plains" "

    " I enjoyed this - got so immersed in it I thought I was there. I love this sort of thing any way and got hooked on historical fiction years ago reading Eagle of 9th by Rosemary Sutcliffe. Well worth a read "

    " Long book but worth the effort. It took a bit to get used to the terminology and to follow who was who, but it was quite interesting and the characters were developed well. Who would have thought it possible to develop compassion for the family of Genghis Khan? "

    " Recommended by a high school boy - and it's definitely a guy book. Too many battle scenes and too much violence for my tastes. And yet it was well-written and motivated me to check out a biography on Ghengis Khan. "

    " According to Hugh Nibley, The Jaredites were more like people of the Monguls than like the people of Lehi. Just curious about that culture. Bloodthirsty people. "
