    One thought on “The Road to Jerusalem”

    1. نحن لا نستطيع ان ندرك بمحدودية عقولنا وعدم نفاذ بصيرتنا ما تخبئه اقدارنا وما يحمله المستقبل لنا من خير نتذمر ونشعر بالضيق امام العقبات الصغيرة التى تظهر امامنا نحزن لفقدان من نحب او لفشل موقت ونشعر بان الحياة اصبحت ترفضنا واننا لن نستطيع ان نكلمل رحلتنا بها ننسى كثيرا أن ر [...]

    2. Nordic or Saxon-based fantasy or historical novels, when written by those outside of the respective countries, tend to turn into a gamut of stereotypical scenarios involving ale and whore houses, lootin' and pillagin', and some booze fueled mano a mano manly combat, with some barbaric execution and torture practices thrown in for good measure. All this is supposed to exude that rugged sense of manhood and bonding and brotherhood that kept life going in the longhouses on the icy land. Instead the [...]

    3. يان غيو كاتب وصحفي سويدي مؤلف هذه الثلاثية (الطريق إلى القدس - فارس العبد - المملكة في نهاية الطريق). قام بترجمتها المترجم الجزائري مدني قصري الذي ترجم من قبل روايتي (فتاة البرتقال) و (سر الصبر) للكاتب النرويجي جوستاين غاردر، والتي صدرت عن دار المنى.تدور أحداث الرواية في القرن ا [...]

    4. The first of a trilogy about a Templar crusader named Arn Magnusson, this story is about his parents and the circumstances that surround the birth and teaching the young man. Apparently a classic and one of the biggest sellers and most praised books out of Sweden, it is quite long and contains significant information about early medieval Sweden.This is a period of moving away from the old ways, although fairly established as Christian, and Sweden's politics have much of the old system and its fi [...]

    5. The Crusades Trilogy tells the saga of Arn Magnusson in the late 12th century. The story of Arn itself is fascinating although entirely fictional. Written history of the Northern people in that time period is extremely sparse leaving much wiggle room for Jan Guillou to create a fantasy-like tale set in an extremely vivid period of history.Although I only rated the first book "The Road to Jerusalem" with two stars I gave books 2 & 3 a better rating. The greatest strength of the trilogy is its [...]

    6. It's an uncomplicated read. Often boring. Sometimes interesting.The extreme naivete of Arn is not my most favorite trait in a main character. While later in the story he has a more 'in the world but not of the world' quality that stems from his religious upbringing, it wasn't enough to make up for the earlier naive innocence that annoyed me so much.The characters had no real depth for me. They haven't been fleshed out to real people, just distant foreign historical figures thrown into a story. I [...]

    7. أربع أشهر من القراءة كانت هي الفترة التي استغرقها هذا الكتاب لأنهي قرائته رغم انه لا يتجاوز ال 400 صفحة - أقل قليلا - أي أنه بحطجم أي كتاب عادي آخر أقرأه ، لكن هذا الكتاب كان مرهقا فعلا.ينتمي الكتاب الى أدب الملاحم ، الذي لم أستسغه في أحد الأيام ، ورغم اسماء الاماكن والاشخاص المع [...]

    8. أشعر أني مخمورة الآن واني يجب ان لا اكتب هذا الكلام ! الا انني مشدوهة انه انتهي اي الجزء الأول , اشعر انني اريد المزيد , بل اني اتضور جوعاً إلى المزيد كان الكتاب , نقلة حياتيه , وواقع لا يمكن غض الطرف عنه , لقد صوّر الحرب الصليبية و نشأنها في اعين الصليبين بدقة او بالأحرى الحياة ال [...]

    9. رواية مثيرة جداً للإهتمام تلقي الضوء على الجزء الآخر من العالم خلال فترة الحروب الصليبية. برغم حساسية الموضوع إلا أن الرواية تفيض بالصور الإنسانية و الروحية. كأن خلافاتنا هي نتيجة لسوء التفاهم الحاصل بيننا و أننا كبشر قريبون جداً لبعضنا البعض. كعادة دار المنى، إبداع في التر [...]

    10. *Brilliant depiction of medieval times, centered in the land that would become Sweden*Caught between the turmoil resulting from the crusades and the medieval rivalries of kings and church, a young man discovers his inheritance and sets out to realize his destiny.In fulfillment of a promise made to God, a woman of noble means, commits her young son to the care of the Cistercian monks. The boy is Arn, and at first he is crushed to be torn away from his family. But his natural brightness, intellige [...]

    11. je 3. skandinavski autor (nakoni ) s kojim se susrećem u zadnje vrijeme i moram priznati da su me zainteresirali za skandinavsku književnost, jer su stilom i žanrom različiti (ne padajte na reklamni slogan ''Jo Nesbø je novi Stieg Larsson''!).''Put u Jeruzalem'' je jedan u podužem nizu povijesnih romana koje sam pročitala u zadnje vrijeme (mislim da mi treba barem kratka pauza), pa se ne mogu oteti potrebi da ga usporedim si .''Put u Jeruzalem'' i ''Bijelu kraljicu'' povezuje narativan ka [...]

    12. A lovely book. Unlike some other reviewers, I found the distinctive writing style to be quite delightful. Guillou can move effortlessly from the point of view of the naïve Arn, to that of a timid mother in law, to a wise priest, to a calculating nobleman, all in the space of a few pages. It must be admitted that the character of Arn seems almost drawn from a fairy tale, but the encounter of such a character with the (historically accurate) political complexity and occasional brutality of mediev [...]

    13. This book was fantastic. It has the proper historical accuracy that a historical fiction should have. Jan Guillou is a fabulous, well-versed author who can paint the world with his words, tickle the senses with his diction, and transport you into a world of love, betrayal, pain, sin and spirituality. If you're a reader who even has a passing interest in history, i would recommend this book to you. But we warned: the story is very complex and moves fast. Simply be careful and try to look at the b [...]

    14. By far and away the best trilogy that I have ever read. Having seen ARN, a movie that spun all three books into one movie - a gem, I had to read the books. The movie was the most expensive adventure that Sweden had ever put into a movie according to and it was worth it with one exception - the third book was cut short in so may ways. This first book sets up the characters in what will become the nation of Sweden.

    15. Kindly sent by my dear friend Bettie. Just arrived today!!The first book of a trilogy but I wasn't really engaged into the plot. I am not sure I would read the rest of this trilogy. 2,5 stars.

    16. First Read: 22.11.12Re-read: 5.6.14I re-read this in preparation to finish the trilogy seeing as I have entirely forgotten most of the story! I'm glad I had otherwise I'd have been very confused by the second book. I wish I could remember more details when I read books. Anyway. I enjoyed it still just as much but have changed it from a 5 star to a 4 star. Whilst it is still very good and high up there with many books, I'm nowadays trying to reserve 5 stars for those that I find exceptional. Some [...]

    17. ولأنى أعشق التاريخ كان ليخيب ظنى فى هذه الرواية لو لم تكن على هذا القدر من الوضوح والحياد والمتعة .آرن ماغنسون الطفل الذى صحبت ولادته معجزة تجلى العذراء لأمه والذى تعرض للموت فى طفولته لكنه عاد للحياة بفضل معجزة من القديس برنار بعد ان إبتهل والديه إليه كى ينقذ ولدهما من الموت [...]

    18. I cannot put my finger on exactly why I loved this book so much.  It's something about Arn. He is such an ideal hero: skilled and courageous, innocent and honest, ethical to excess, but with a tragic weakness for human love.  What is not to admire?  I was drawn to read the series by the cinematic adaptation, but in the old proverbial way, I enjoyed the book so much more.  This first installment is all about Arn's upbringing and the social/political climate that formed his education.  I like [...]

    19. First off, if you want a non fiction history book about the Knights templar, the crusades, don't read a fictitious novel expecting to get a history lesson. But if you want a great trilogy about fictitious knights templars and the crusades, then this book is for you. The writing style is simple, and this is a quick read. I have barely been able to tear my eyes away from it, and I'm extremely picky with my books. I'm that person who won't finish a book if I know I'm not into it, no matter how far [...]

    20. Well-written, sweeping historical epic about a young Swedish nobleman who goes to the Holy Land as a Crusader during the High Middle Ages. This book, the first in the trilogy, deals with the main character's upbringing and the events that led him to become a knight. Although this book did not have as much in-depth character description/development as I'd like, the author did a wonderful job of describing the period and making it seem very realistic. I also found the Scandanavian perspective very [...]

    21. Գրքի ու հեղինակի վրա իմ ուշադրությունը Հայկ Զ-ի ոգևորված արձագանքը (շարքի չորրորդ պատմության մասին) գրավեց։ Նման ոգևորվածությամբ պատանի տարիներին միայն երևի առագաստանավերի մասին եմ կարդացել։ Հիասքանչ պատմություն է։ Ափսոս բացի առաջինից՝ մյուս հատորներին անցնել չկարողաց [...]

    22. This book really took me by surprise and is the best book I've read in months. It was so good that I'm actually writing a review, which I have never done before. The description of the book doesn't do the story justice. And the writing is phenomenal!! I would recommend this book to just about anyone.

    23. Interesting novel set in the middle ages. Set in Sweden, I have to say the style reminded me of the sagas that came from that part of the world during the time period in which the story takes place. Looking forward to reading the rest of the series.

    24. Odlična prva knjiga, s razlogom hvaljena. Nadam se da su i ostale u serijalu jednake kvalitete. U ovoj knjizi Arn je daleko od nekog stereotipa viteza templara to tek treba postati i zato mi je zanimljivo bilo pratiti njegovo učenje i poimanje svijeta izvan samostana. Preporuka!

    25. Great bookIt is a good introduction to a important historical moment.After reading it I am interested to find out more.

    26. Detailed without being tedious. Great read about the making of a Templar Knight in a positive and somewhat tragic light.

    27. This book series is famous in Sweden, having its own bloody mini series ( which I'll start watching the minute the books have been read); and I'd never heard of them until I moved here. Upon tracking down the trilogy in English I was immediately impressed. The reader is immediately thrown into the brutal and tumultuous epoch of kings and clans in the far north reaches of Europe as whispers travel from the Holy Land of Saladin's army assailing JerusalemCentred in the Sth West of Sweden, we follow [...]

    28. Jag har sett filmerna men som vanligt är böckerna bättre. Man förs verkligen tillbaks i tiden till då elektriciteten skulle anses som svart konst och ända sättet att ta sig fram var med häst eller gå. Det var dåliga levnads förhållanden och äktenskapen var inget mer än ett byteskontrakt. Roligt, genomtänkt och förmedlat på ett bra sätt som talar till våran tid, vilket jag anser är något av det viktigaste när man skriver historisk fiktion. Det finns tydliga paralleller mella [...]
