    Creation eBook ¼ Hardcover creation free, Creation MOBIAn historical novel of truly epic proportions20 October 2012 I didn't realise that Gore Vidal was what is called a revisionist when it came to his historical novels but it only makes me want to pick up of his books because revisionists tend to give us an alternate view of history that differs from the history that is written by the winners This book is one of those examples not so much a retelling of Herodotus but rather a version of Herodotus written from the view of a Persian For those who are not familiar with Ancient Greek literature Herodotus is known as the Father of History but he is also known as the Father of Lies most likely because of his portrayal of the Persians who were the enemies of the Greeks However Herodotus' Histories is not strictly a history text but rather an anthropological text in which he describes a number of cultures that existed around the Eastern Mediterranean during his time A large section of his book deals with

    Creation eBook ¼ Hardcover creation free, Creation MOBIThis is a magnificent novel by Gore Vidal I had read a translation of it many years ago However a few weeks ago Vidal was in Toronto and that was how I began looking at the novel again For those Iranians who were angry at the movie 300 this book works as a relief The narrator is an imaginary Cyrus Spitama who Vidal describes as the grandson of Zoroaster Zarathushtra I have to add that Zoroaster lived somewhere between 4000 to 7000 years ago Recent studies are in favour of 7000 including Mary Setegast’s marvelous research When Zarathushtra Spoke So in a way Vidal’s Cyrus Spitama cannot be the prophet’s grandson since the author is talking about events of

    Creation eBook ¼ Hardcover creation free, Creation MOBIThis is not one of my favorite books of all time but I am giving it five stars anyway because it truly is amazing Vidal's grasp of history never fails to impress me Creation is a long rambling journey across the fourth century BC as viewed by Cyrus Spitama a Persian diplomat and the grandson of Zoroaster Vidal breaks several of the cardinal rules of fiction and the book can seem a little exhausting at times the lengthy conversations about ancient Greek politics would have been interesting if I had a in depth understanding of Grecian history That said Gore is at his gossipy best when he delves into harem politics

    Creation eBook ¼ Hardcover creation free, Creation MOBII give up I expected to love this book but Gore Vidal somehow managed to take an amazing concept for a story and turn it into one of the dullest books i've ever tried to slog through The narrator has little depth despite his unnecessary verbosity and neither do most of the people he encounters despite their being some of the most influential people in world history It is obvious that Vidal did an extensive amount of research for the book and attempted to include every sliver of information he learned I give him credit for his learning but the result here is a book that is not story driven enough to be a good novel nor deep or informative enough to work well as a work of nonfiction Apologies to anyone who enjoyed it

    Creation eBook ¼ Hardcover creation free, Creation MOBIThis and Julian may be my favorite novels by Vidal not that I've read them all yetCreation postulates within the realm of plausibility a character who in the course of his lifetime travels from Persia to India to China to Greece and meets such luminaries as Zoroaster the Buddha Lao Tzu Confucius and Herodotus It is done amusingly but seriously enough that a reader unfamiliar with the period might be inspired to pursue a serious study

    Creation eBook ¼ Hardcover creation free, Creation MOBIOne of my favourite books on Iran and history I first read this in 1982 when I was travelling in India I had heard of the book before I began an around the world trip in 1981 82 and picked up a dog eared copy in New Delhi It had a profound effect on me because most of ancient history came from the Greek side of things primarily from the Father of History Herodotus Vidal took a different tact and wrote this book from the Persian side of history and rightly so I don't know why Old World historians and ancient Near Eastern folk always favour the Greek side of things there are two sides to a coin after all We don't necessarily need to read everything
