One of the best ever!

by runr on Apr 3, 2007

This is such a wonderful adventure! The book takes you to all kinds of different places. Along the way you will experience different cultures and interesting characters. Gary Jennings is such a great story teller and all of his books are backed by a ton of research on his part. I kept this one to read again sometime. Highly recommended!

A journey by Marco Polo tainted

by Ron Townsend on Apr 2, 2007

I read Gary Jennings The Journey to the end and was rather disappointed with the pornography along the way which is the reason I won't recommend it. It was an inspiring novel about the trips of Marco Polo and I felt there was a good reason for writing it. It has kept me from reading the other of the works of the late Gary Jennings. I suppose some of the graphic scenes were thrown in to get attention but it didn't help with the flow of the story. Tales of interesting places like this and the work of James Michener intrigued me in the 1980s. After I had lived in Maryland as an adult I read Michener's Chesapeake which had the breadth and scope of The Journeyer. Michener never stooped to graphic descriptions although the love scene in the airliner in The Drifters was actually as graphic as he ever got whether he wrote terrific small books like Sayonarra or the big blockbusters like Chesapeake.
