I haven‘t read a lot set solely in ancient times, but I have several on my TBR mountain. Lol.
I seem to read more ‘time spanning‘ historical fiction that starts BC and often goes up to the present day (or close).
The tagged is my favorite.

Also enjoyed Hawaii by Michener and loved both Sarum and London by Edward Rutherfurd.
I also enjoyed Clan of the Cave Bear by Jean Auel

Michener uses an archeological dig to tell the history & stories of #Israel, birth of religion, horrific & graphic torture of Jews, & the fierce fighting in the region up to the creation of the country. He doesn‘t flinch from difficult philosophical or competing religious questions even within the same faith. Definitely instructive. A hard read for ongoing graphic violence. #readingasia2021 #foodandlit #chunksterchallenge2021 (1267 pages)

I had no idea that “hip hip hurrah” has some anti-Semitic origins. I googled the Latin phrase and found numerous articles on the subject. Here‘s a good concise one:

I‘m now at the second level from the top of the archeological dig in #Israel. Page 995, 77%. The previous level had gruesome moments, as has most of the book. I will be very relieved when I‘ve finished. It‘s a good book, but brutal and emotionally draining.

Third level from top of the archeological dig. Yes I‘m still plodding through this one. I‘m at 69% on page 871. I took a bit of a break after some really gruesome parts of the book. I guess in stories about items discovered in a dig, everybody dies. But how makes all the difference.

Not only is this book long, often it‘s hard to read: the violence & inhumanity it describes (because of religion & gender & slavery) can be very hard to take. I often hesitate to pick it back up fearing more horrific stories.

The bestselling book in the US in 1965 was this monster, 1240 pages of stories tracing the history of a Middle Eastern mound, from prehistoric peoples emerging from caves, up to the founding of Israel. Along the way it's much to chew on, about history, progress, community, and religion.

It's good but dang is it ever a lot of book.

Another new word!

The dispatch reached Caligula at an evil moment. He raged at the contempt of the Jews and at the pusillanimity of his Syrian general. By swift messengers he sent news to Antioch that the Jews must be completely destroyed and that Petronius must commit suicide...

#thoughtfulthursday Thanks @Eggs for the tag!

1) To avoid spoilers I‘ll go with the popular answer—a character from the Harry Potter slaughter in the Deathly Hallows (pick any)

2) So many but none come to me now except Rebecca, having recently reread it. It was probably the first book I read as a kid that had continuous surprises toward the end of the book up until the last page. Im glad I didn‘t remember them in the reread.

3) tagged

“Why didn‘t the Greek ideal catch hold in these parts?” Cullinane asked.

“For the same reasons it wasn‘t acceptable in Rome,” Tabari explained. “It‘s fun to chase after a running man, but it‘s more fun to sit in a comfortable stadium and watch lions chase him. The Greeks and the English developed sports. The Romans and the Americans degenerated them into spectacles. And the Arabs and Jews said to hell with the whole silly mess.”

I learned a new word! If you don‘t know it either, feel free to look it up:

She was a woman hungry for the higher world, for the more complete song, and in Makor she was miserable, tied down to its uninspiring syncretism of ritual for Yahweh and worship of Baal.

There is an absolutely brilliant exchange among 3 archeologists (American, Arab, Jew) discussing their different perspectives of Israel. They also discuss how one has to be very careful about making assumptions about how people lived during any historical period. I love history, it was my major in undergrad. I love reading fiction and nonfiction about history. But by golly, if I didn‘t learn a new way of thinking about history in their dialog! ⬇️

Librarybelle I love that observation! I too was a history undergrad and love learning about history and perspectives. 2y

Israel as the “focus of forces.” This book was written in 1965. How many more examples could he describe through 2021? #readingasia2021 #foodandlit #Israel #chunksterchallenge2021 @Librarybelle @BarbaraBB @Butterfinger @Catsandbooks @Amiable

Crazeedi My absolute favorite Michener. I read it in 6th grade, amazing. From the teachers library, since the elementary library didnt challenge me, I loved Mrs Henry the librarian. She understood 2y
Texreader @Crazeedi That‘s so cool! I ❤️ the librarian who did that for you. I was a chunkster junky as a kid but mainly once I was in high school. In elementary I had an obsession with Rebecca and I read it over and over. And that there explains why we‘re so loyal to Litsy. We found our second family!! I‘ve only read Texas by Michener before this one. I do like his writing.⬇️ (edited) 2y
Texreader I read Texas because my Norwegian mother-in-law read it before she came to visit us in the US the first time. She was aghast I hadn‘t read it before so I did. 2y
Crazeedi @Texreader I've read most of his books. His early ones are the best. I think there might be a couple of his much later that arent quite as good. But I've read almost every one. He was my go to for years. Hawaii, Centennial, the Covenant, takes of the South Pacific, bridges at toko-ri. Etc etc. Did you know he was in his 40s when he wrote his first book 2y

I love how Michener has organized this book. In chapter 1 archeologists find many items, then hit bedrock. Chapter 2 is telling the story of the oldest find in the dig and it is fascinating.

I like when books give us maps and depictions about what‘s happening.

#aprilbookshowers My first thought for #publishedinthe1960s was to tap our Michener collection. I was shocked when I started looking at publication dates by the length of his writing career. Some that I assumed were from the 60's were actually written in the 70's and 80's. I knew The Source would fit, because I read it in high school, and I was in high school in the 60's. And now I've definitely dated myself😊
