    Tediously interesting

    The book relates the possibilities for the collapse of Eastern Mediterranean and Mesopotamian civilizations at the end of the Bronze Age. For most readers getting through the discussion of what is known and not known will prove tedious exacerbated by unfamiliar names. If you wade through it, you will gain some insight into various power centers and people's. Multiple groups were tied together through trade and royal marriages in a web of interdependence. This complexity may well have helped collapse when multiple stresses arose in a short period of time. In the end the insight and conclusions are not clear and crisp.

    Good read!

    Interesting arguments on bringing history and current theories together to answer some of today's vexing questions.

    Loved It

    Great read. The implications for today's world can only be ignored at our own peril. Mr. Cline's passion for archaeology effused tbe pages with his pasion.

    A failed attempt for the non-specialist reader

    Obviously very erudite, but reads more like a thesis. The mass of Arab words makes the book difficult to read. It looks like its author wanted reader sto know just how much he knew about this miffle-age Middle Eastern era, impressing them with his knowledge. Unfortunately the result was a book hard to read for non-Middle Eastern history buffs. Too bad, it could have been a great read.
