Russka, The Novel of Russia
I just finished reading it, and it's a wonderful book. I feel like I understand the Russian people so much better now. The book begins in A.D. 180 and ends in 1990, so a lot of territory is covered.
London, The Novel
It starts in 54 BC and ends in 1997. The most astounding thing I have discovered so far was that the Catholic Church ran the brothels. I have only read up to 1376, but I am finding the book very enjoyable.
This time Rutherfurd decided to do something different. Instead of starting in the past and working up to the future, the book begins in April 2000. Dottie, is doing a feature on "The Forest" and is looking for answers to the mystery of what really happened to King William Rufus, The Norman king. As I love a good mystery, I am anxious to jump into this one. http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/MEDwilliamII.htm
