    I love this book beyond stars.The reasons I love this book is because it shows with perfect realism how religious fanatics were developed and maintained in this particular case, Muslims , how harems were built and worked, and how higher ups used knowledge or rather, the lack of knowledge about life and spirituality and human existence in general, to steer the minds of young, naive men and sustain dogma, thirsty for blood and revenge.I love this book because the antagonist is cooler than the pr I love this book beyond stars.The reasons I love this book is because it shows with perfect realism how religious fanatics were developed and maintained in this particular case, Muslims , how harems were built and worked, and how higher ups used knowledge or rather, the lack of knowledge about life and spirituality and human existence in general, to steer the minds of young, naive men and sustain dogma, thirsty for blood and revenge.I love this book because the antagonist is cooler than the protagonist until the protagonist becomes the antagonist and the antagonist becomes the protagonist, which is even cooler I love it because after a point words ending in ist and ism are rendered shallow and empty and meaningless Because our hero anti hero fights fire with wildfire, using the same means, incorporating extreme and innovative techniques...

    I read Alamut in Slovene, so I can t really speak for the English translator s work I daresay it could only have improved the stylistically clumsy original Bartol was generally a man of ideas and thought experiments, and not exactly a master of prose The prose is awkward and uninspired, generally dull and prone to dip into cheesiness when he tries to go beyond his abilities He s not very good at evocative imagery, which is really a shame, given the oriental setting Partly it s because Slove I rea...

    I really just found this book by researching a lot on the Assassin s Creed universe, and gave myself the assignment of reading it, since the first of the games should be very much built up upon the ideas in the novel I must say that I was mesmerized and astonished by the book I loved the story and I very much liked the way it was written It didn t take methan a couple of days to get through it, and I was almost sad when it ended This book has a lot to offer wonderful and, at times, I rea...

    Not just simple folk from the masses, even theexalted minds preferred a tangible lie to an ungraspable truth All my attempts to enlighten individuals or groups came to nothing Because truth, which for me stood at the summit of all values, was worthless to the rest of humanity Viewed from the perspective of any individual, every pleasure that he feels is a real, genuine pleasure Each of us is happy in his own way So if the prospect of dying means happiness for someone, he ll delight Not just simple folk from the masses, even theexalted minds preferred a tangible lie to an ungraspable truth All my attempts to enlighten individuals or groups came to nothing Because truth, which for me stood at the summit of all values, was worthless to the rest of humanity Viewed from the perspective of any individual, every pleasure that he feels is a real, genuine pleasure Each of us is happy in his own way So if the prospect of dying means happiness for someone, he ll delight in death just as much as another delights in money or a woman There are no regrets after death If all our experiences are evaluated based on how we perceive them, is it wrong for leaders and prophets to manipulate the masses by giving them what they want for sake of the greater good Alamut is a novel which cleverly masks moral and philosophical questions in the form of fiction I have my own opinion on what Bartol was alluding to but, no doubt, others ...

    His fighters called the fedayeens believed that he can open for them the gates to paradise They not only did not fear death, they sought it They considered it a source of both honor and happiness to be sent by him on suicide missions They believed, without any doubt, that their death will bring them to paradise, a place of eternal delights, where there are gardens with streams flowing clear as crystal, where there are choices food and drink, and where fair limbed beautiful girls with dark eye His fighters ...

    This work by Bartol could have been half the length without losing anything, but even if the uneventful opening 2 3rds of the book were trimmed down, the work would still have unimpressive writing and uninteresting philosophy Alamut, my edition translated by Michael Biggins, at first reads like a work of young adult fiction It has simplistic not minimalist prose and dialogue, the point of view male and female characters are given elevated importance for reasons that are largely not justified This work by Bartol could have been half the length without losing anything, but even if the uneventful opening 2 3rds of the book were trimmed down, the work would still have unimpressive writing and uninteresting philosophy Alamut, my edition translated by Michael Biggins, at first reads like a work of young adult fiction It has simplistic not minimalist prose and dialogue, the point of view male and female characters are given elevated importance for reasons that are largely not justified, and for the first half of the book the main characters are essentially attending school School of some form is of course a popular setting for young adult fiction, and, as the point of view characters serve as the reader surrogate, an inflated importance of those characters magnifies the escapist fantasy at the core of much of young adult fiction Eventually Alamut stops feelin...

    I read this book as a companion to Assassin s Creed, the setting in that game is so rich Alamut takes the basic legends surrounding the Assassins you can find most of them in Wikipedia and breathes life into those legends Many contradictions are explored how could the Assassins have been deeply ascetic and pious and yet smoke hashish and preach nothing is true, everything is permitted In answering these questions, Alamut chronicles the creations of a religion not unlike Scientology, whe I read this book as a companion to Assassin s Creed, the setting in that game is so rich Alamut takes the basic legends surrounding the Assassins you can find most of them in Wikipedia and breathes life into those legends M...

    Most of the promotional material for this historical novel has centered on claiming it as some sort of key to modern Islamic extremism, even calling it a training manual for al Qaeda No way these thousand year old events are about as relevant to the current century as the 11th century Investiture Controversy is to understanding the relationship between the Catholic Church and modern European governments Rather, like in many historical novels, the depiction of that time period serves as a cas Most of the promotional material for this historical novel has centered on claiming it as some sort of key to modern Islamic extremism, even calling it a training manual for al Qaeda No way these thousand year old events are about as relevant to the current century as the 11th century Investiture Controversy is to understanding the relationship between the Catholic Church and modern European governments Rather, like in many historical novels, the depiction of that time period serves as a case study and framework forge...
