    1. It took me a while to read this book, mainly because I was trying to read it at night before turning out the light, and it wasn't quite gripping enough to keep me awake for long periods of time, although I really did enjoy it. I read it in hardback and it kept falling on my face or on the cat, so I tended to only read a few pages at a time.I was mostly interested in the period and in Suleiman because the setting and several of the historical personages figure prominently in some of my favorite b [...]

    2. I came across this book as being one of many on my father’s bookshelves. The date on the first page (He has a habit of writing his name, date and year on which he bought it) said March, 06, 1996. First thing that came to my mind was that I was 9 years old when my father actually bought this book. And now I am 26. So for almost two decades at lay on the book-shelve, untouched by everything but time. My first thought was that it must be one of those books, which revealed the lost glory of Islam. [...]

    3. Very readable history of Turkey's emperor at the peak of the Ottoman empire. It tells the story of Suleiman's ruthless battles against Rhodos, Malta, Cyprus, and Hungary and how Christian Europe was too busy and fractionalized to counter his offensives. The losses in the name of the true God are staggering and show that probably little has changed in the last 500 years except how we kill distantly. I'm tempted to read Bridge's book on the Cursades.

    4. Written in an interesting fashion, and outlines the other main players of the era (Charles V, Francis I, etc).Disappointing in that it misses out almost all of his great works within the empire - which are summarised in a couple of paragraphs on the second last page.It's a fair enough read, but hardly a defining work on the subject. 3 stars.
