Books for Easter (2)

""The book is a stupendous achievement. Truly, can one think of another book (in only 800 short pages) that is able to contain a complete century, and all the countries, of Europe? And he does it with an artist's eye. Lord, how well this man can write."" wrote a enthusiastic reader on Amazon.

Dutch journalist Geert Mak  travels during a year in Europe. He narrates the story of the 20th century of every place of the continent, via the people, the places, the memories of the biggest human achievement and biggest slaughterhouse in the world, Europe. Astonishinig!
