Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Perelandra | 2/9/2014

    " Wonderful, scholarly, and at times witty history. An absolute joy and wonder to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carter | 2/6/2014

    " Good introduction, very engaging writing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Doug Ward | 2/1/2014

    " Fascinating read. I will read this several times again. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ds | 1/26/2014

    " only read half and some other sections "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brian Peeler | 1/25/2014

    " The book is well-written, but takes a far too Western Civ-focused approach for the title "Ancient World". The author also places a little bit too much faith in literary history over archaeological history. These things aside, I still consider it a good, worthwhile read, and will probably pick up her book on the following era at some point. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Muhamad Chatab | 1/13/2014

    " Nice book but there are many deviations history in it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Skedatt | 1/13/2014

    " A conversational history of the world. I love the fact that she has included end notes and cited her sources. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Celeste | 1/3/2014

    " I didn't finish this book. Maybe I will in the future when I'm not reading so many other heavy books (literally and figuratively speaking). I was not as impressed with this book for high schoolers and adults as I am her original series for children, "The Story of the World". "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Greg | 12/15/2013

    " The best introductory account of the ancient world I've read. Very easy read but informative. Suitable for younger readers (my 13 year old boys enjoyed it) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrew | 12/7/2013

    " REALLY huge but good to pick up and read a chapter here or there or as your curiosity hits. Kind of skirts art and science and such, sticking to what is basically a list of leaders only. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becca | 10/28/2013

    " An interesting summary of the highlights from ancient history. I finally know more about the rise and fall of Babylon and Persia, why Alexander was "Great," who Cleopatra was, and what the big deal is about Rome, and much more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dakota | 10/1/2013

    " More like "heavily skimmed," but a good read and storyline. Good details on the important parts. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Travis | 9/2/2013

    " Read this one out loud to Michelle in the evenings. Bauer has an excellent style. She covered all the major cultures/civilizations in parallel. I was most enthusiastic that this history wasn't Israelite-n-everybody else. In fact, they have a very minor role in this history. Excellent read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ceci | 7/25/2013

    " I read this book for school, and found that I really liked it. I'm constantly surprised by how much history reads like a good story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vanessa Baldwin | 6/28/2013

    " Another one I need to buy so I can take my time. Honestly after a hard day of chasing small children, it can require too much brain power to maintain focus, but it IS interesting to me and I DO want to know more. So I will keep giving it my best until I finish it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alison | 4/12/2013

    " Well worth the time needed to read it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dora | 4/3/2013

    " The only gripe I have about this book is that it is too short.I am well aware that it has over 700 pages. Still. I would have loved more information. Great writing style, but I expected as much from Susan Bauer. We use her history curriculum. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jady | 1/11/2013

    " Very well-written - not at all dry and full of informative detail that's often amusing as well. I can't wait for the rest of them to be written! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian Kish | 11/6/2012

    " A good history book for those who want an overview of the time period without getting into very specific details of any one area. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Theresa | 10/22/2012

    " This book helped me learn a lot of things I either never learned or have long since forgotten. The best part is it is written in a way that keeps your interest instead of a boring time line of kingdoms coming and going over time. "
