This is not an ordinary history book. As readers will realise quite early on, Neagu Djuvara has the audacity to tackle some of the most delicate and controversial issues in Romanian history under the guise of light storytelling. With the addition of illustrations, the book becomes better and easier to understand: we are offered the chance to see how ancient artefacts discovered by archaeologists actually look like, or catch a glimpse of the world of barbarians and medieval warriors depicted in wonderful illuminated manuscripts.

Great book that talks about Romanian history in a clear, straightforward way that anyone can understand. The author has a great knowledge of Romanian history but gives you just what you really need to know. Fantastic read, wholeheartedly recommend it.

I like Neagu Djuvara's books in Romanian but the translation almost kills him. The ottoman Porte is the Gate, the book is peppered with Romanian words that to the English reader are annoying and to the Romanian reader unnecessary. It's a pitty that Djuvara's style, otherwise casual, engaging and charming, has been butchered to this extent. For those fellow Romanians reading this, Irina Nistor could have translated this better while doubling three movies, doing laundry and tutoring a kid in French and another in German.

It's been so hard during all the Cold War years to get good Romanian history in English. This book is wonderful. I am matching what I read with what my deceased Grandfather lived and told stories about. Great closure.

No photos, just text. I am disappointed, I hoped to get my son interested in reading it, but it is not what I was looking for.
Nothing personal
This is a very good book written by a great Romanian historian. It's well written, with the right amount of detail. It's marketed to young Romanians living abroad, but don't let that stop you from reading it if you are not that young anymore. I'm in my 40s and I loved the book. A lot of interesting facts about Romanian history that I didn't know. Excellent idea translating this book in English.

The book is an excellent choice for a translation. It is very easy to read, more like a story than a history lecture. It comes with new perspectives of some historical events, making use of a non-technical language. I like the initiative of the editors to give the side-by-side translation of some traditional words. I highly recommend it, not only for Romanian children who prefer to read in English, but also for a larger audience.
