    1. It took me 2 months to struggle through the first half of the book with numerous side readings wiki movies To make sure I ve got a clear picture, I even created a timeline with 300 events from pre history to reformation and also hundreds of dots on my Google map Once all the puzzles came together, I can breeze through the remaining 50% with great satisfaction.


    2. I read this on a Kindle which in terms of sheer logistics is the best way to read a 1392 page book A book book of this size is just too uncomfortable to read in any other way The Kindle came into its own especially with its notes and highlights features.1392 pages, too little to cover 3 or 4,000 years of complex history of a continent 1392 pages, too many pages to not be bored or overwhelmed with information Davies did this by not writing a conventional history By conventional I mean not by chro [...]


    3. A very big read indeed, but worth every minute you spend on it The author makes a big point of treating the history of the whole of Europe, not just the Western part, and I agree with the author that such a treatment has been long overdue The book is great as an overview work but can also be used to fill in some of the gaps in your historical knowledge, especially about Eastern Europe, since it also goes into some detail However, it is not an introductory work and often assumes that you already [...]


    4. Can one narrate time time as such, in and of itself Most certainly not, what a foolish undertaking that would be The story would go Time passed, ran on, flowed in a mighty stream, and on and on in the same vein No one with any common sense could call that a narrative Thomas Mann, The Magic MountainPersonal PrefaceLately I have been thinking a lot about time Well, perhaps thinking isn t the right word I ve been worrying Ever since I moved to Spain, time has been a problem What s the proper time t [...]


    5. Davies specializes in Polish history and WWII, but took on a continent sized task The result is a haphazardly organized mish mash that loses its way just as its subject emerges as a concept in the 17th and 18th centuries We get a lot of Eastern European history, at the expense of understanding other nations My Polish background makes that fine by me However, by writing too many books, historians run a danger the need to recycle material Europe is proof At 1136 pages plus loads of appendixes, it [...]


    6. Unless you know a whole lot about Europe already, this is a great book to read for the curious lay person and intellectual or for the student It s long, clearly, but very much worth it as a book to read on the side I m a firm believer that histories should neither be told as stories or as simply a collection of facts, but something in between Davies does it to near perfection The writing is smooth and easily understandable for all And, to his great credit, Davies tries hard at writing the histor [...]


    7. 4.5Ahh After six months though really two intense months of reading I ve finally finished this monster of a book I m not saying that in quality only in the size of the book The content itself was actually really enjoyable Norman Davies divides his chapters between the the ideas and events that take place in the continent during each respective era He shows how things that happen to one state or part of Europe can have immense effect on another area I really enjoyed getting the broader picture wh [...]



    8. I wavered between 4 and 5 stars, because there are some parts mostly in the beginning that I forced myself to trudge through But that was only because my knowledge of Europe outside of the usual stuff is relatively small, and I was just not able to process all the names and places thrown out I m taking into account that this book is an insane undertaking, and the fact that I was really into the book for around 800 of its 1136 pages is pretty damn impressive The little boxes of random asides scat [...]


    9. I ve been reading this all year, 2,3, 4 pages a day, slowly digesting This is magisterial history It does have sections deep in the past when his history slides into a survey of rulers or social movements Not surprising in a work so vast and all encompassing in its scope I think his narrative of the 20th century astonishing in its insight and analysis I highly recommend this to anyone interested in reading history.


    10. Extraordinary history of Europe Brilliant, especially for its attention to eastern Europe, although written just after the opening of the Iron Curtain in 1989 The lemma s that accompany the chronological story are perfect complementaries, that give depth to the narrative.


    11. I feel a sense of relief having finished this book That s not something one would normally feel on finishing what is a good book, but this is such an enormous relentless tome, that it is pretty exhausting Even though I have read several books in parallel, this one has tired me Davies covers European history in the full, from the earliest times to the point of completion of the book back in 1991 It is by its nature broad brush history, but Davies includes plenty of small details and historical an [...]


    12. Interesting, comprehensive book He does a good job of covering all of Europe s history in one volume However, I did notice some incorrect facts in the book for instance about Scandinavia which I know best , and this probably means there are many incorrect facts I didn t notice So I don t recommend trusting the book 100%.


    13. This is an amazing, magisterial text that I always find myself opening Though Davies let s his anti Soviet sentiment affect not only his modern interpretations and he ignores the Romanized and Hellenized culture of the Middle East, it s still the finest overview of classical Europe that I ve ever read.


    14. The sine qua non reference for European history Particularly valuable for covering than France, Germany, Italy, and Britain.


    15. A truly epic work Having 20 odd years of perspective since this book was published really brings home just how big a millstone around the neck of Europe our collective and individual history is I found myself sighing in recognition of so many of the follies of modern British and European politics, seeing how we simply refuse to learn the lessons of experience.I ve seen some quite sniffy reviews of this claiming it to be unduly weighted towards Poland at the expense of other parts of Eastern Euro [...]


    16. Europe A Historyby Norman DaviesPimlico, 1997 1365 pages review from darrengoossens.wordpress 2 This is probably the single biggest volume I have ever read It has many fans, and rightly so European history is rather like translations of Homer and films of Shakespeare each English speaking generation needs to have its own I have read a handful of histories of Europe, and each time a new one comes along it allows itself to believe it has shaken off a few shibboleths, seen a little clearly, and p [...]


    17. I have been reading this for over a year, and will probably go on reading it for the rest of my life For anyone wanting to understand the patterns of Europe over a long time frame, this is the most interesting book I have come across Davies discusses the concept of Europe as a starting point in itself a fascinating exercise His Europe includes the Slavic countries and the Balkans As he speaks and reads at 9 languages, including several Slavic languages, he is able to access sources that most sch [...]


    18. For several years, history has been the primary focus of what I read Having not had a formal course in history since high school, I decided to read this book in order to build a general base of knowledge which can inform my future book choices.Given the length of the book, and the time commitment that it will likely require to complete, I ve decided to split it into sections, and then temporarily put the book aside after reading each section Over the past month early Aug early Sept 2010 , I fini [...]


    19. This is an excellent survey history of Europe for our times Previous works concentrated primarily on Western Europe Davies chooses to give Poland and Russia equal play with countries such as France and England Given that Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic have joined the European common market, it is now clearly time to widen the focus with those countries that Western Europeans are now travelling to and conducting business with on a routine basis.Just as the disappearance of the Iron Curtain a [...]


    20. If you re looking to settle in for a long, LONG read, then Norman Davies sweeping treatise on European history is for you Not for the faint of heart, Davies opens the book by making the case for this type of historical survey over millennia, and while his argument is compelling, I think his work has led me to conclude that history on a bit smaller scale is much interesting However, I m still glad I read this tome, and for the insights that I gleaned from it.I found Davies to be a very good writ [...]


    21. A quite fascinating entirely readable intro to European history.At over 1200 pages it s quite a tome, but it does cover a lot ofground, pre history to 1992, nomadic tribes to the end of theCold War Along with plenty of maps, charts, and a few sections of photos,there are 1 page Capsules sprinkled throughout, which delve into aparticular subject a little deeper Davies is a scholar on Poland, so if you find the section onthat area a little long, you ve never learned so much aboutLithuania in your [...]


    22. I am a non English speaker with no background in European history and this book was a disaster for me After reading about a hundred pages I couldn t learn anything from it It assumes you have a firm background in European history It just jumps into a time period in history and mentions a lot of names without introducing them or mentioning who or what or where they are For example early in the book where he is talking about Rome there are a lot of mentions of different emperors, places, people, e [...]


    23. Still haven t quite gotten through this all the way I was trying to be strong and go chronologicall, but then around the 5th Century I got distracted I managed to come back and keep going until about 1200 or 1300 maybe Don t get me wrong, it s very thorough and well written considering how much information is contained in it If I ever need to know minute details about this continent, I will be sure to consult this tome I m glad I have it and perhaps one day I will get all the way through For now [...]


    24. More like a chronological encyclopedia than a traditional history book If it wasn t so damned huge this would be the perfect book to sit by the loo ideal for dipping into at random to read up on bits and bobs, but impossible to read cover to cover A must own for anyone interested in the history or politics of Europe.


    25. I particularly appreciate the dedication of major portions of the book to Eastern Europe There were moments when I thought I would like detail about certain events, such as the French Revolution, but I remembered it s a one volume treatment of European history from the earliest times to the present.


    26. Finally, a history that mentions countries other than France, England, Germany and Russia And yikes, I am still in the Dark Ages Hello Middle Ages anyone I am going to have to up my weekly page requirements.



    27. A thick history book comprising all Europe s history and yet you read it as a page turner What is noteworthy is that he gives equal attention to Western and Eastern Europe a rare thing, for some reason A brick sized compendium of knowledge but it reads like a thriller.


    28. I loved the balance Davies brought into the book no longer was Eastern Europe left to the sidelines but it was returned to its rightful place , in there , in Europe I Loved the little packaged bits that looked that topics in detail Brilliant The best history of Europe yet
