We Have Had Too Many Years Of Peace

This is the fourth book and I suppose it could be stand alone, but it would much better if you started at Birth of An Empire. The first five chapters of this was really difficult for me, as they threw so many names at me so fast. All the names are of course foreign, and it took me a while to sort out who was who. (and I read the first three books) This book also has a lot more politics in it and less action. The book is kind of spotty until Part 3 and chapter 26. Then the action really heats up and like the previous books it is really good. Don't miss the last nine chapters.

With Genghis dead, the new Khan builds a city. Genghis had tried to tell them that sitting in one place would make them soft and he was right. Still it amazes me how a certain race of people can kill other people and enjoy it. These Mongols were really no better then animals. Which makes for great reading. Of the five books of Conn's that I have read this is my least favorite and the first I did not give five stars too. Still it was a good book and I am glad I got it. I am looking forward to the next one. I also hope Conn does not finish the Chinese history with the next book, as we should be entering the Romance of The Three Kingdoms era. Which should be an exciting time filled with great generals, lots of warring and back stabbing. A book on Cao Cao would be great.


Richard Ferrone is the voice. He makes this series come alive. He is the characters.

Great Next Chapter

Although this is the fourth book in the series of Genghis Khan this book could actually stand alone because this is the next generation afte Ghengis has died. On the other hand if you did hear this book as the first book then you'd most likely want to go through the first three books to get the full rich story of the rise of the Khan empire.

The author starts with the actual history, but then creates a fiction to fill in the blanks. As you listen to the books you get a feeling that you understand the way certain warriors thought. You develope an understanding of how the society functioned, and how certain individuals either excelled or were basically expendable. It's a harsh life with hard decisions on a daily basis, but that was what made them so damn tough.

I really like all four books and I'm pretty sure the story will continue with another book in a year or so...
