    Ben Hur ePUB ↠ Hardcover Ben Hur ePUBThe first thing I want to address is the “speed” of this book I first read this book in the fall or winter of 1971 and at that time as a high school senior I was well accustomed to reading Jane Austen Charles Dickens Victor Hugo and all those other authors of the Victorian era and before Back then I read one Shakespeare play every year for high school English literature with support from my friends and the teacher and had even slogged through the assigned portions of Beowulf That saidin 1971 I was just awestruck dumbfounded enthralled by the book Ben Hur on so many levels It was one of the foundational books of my adolescence I tried to pick the book up again in 2011 40 years later and found it to be much harder to “get into” By this time I’d seen the 1959 version twice and had even seen th

Oh in all these years I have dreamed of vengeance and prayed and provided for it and gathered patience from the growing of my store thinking and promising as the Lord liveth it will one day buy me punishment of the wrong doers? Who's in for a revenge tale set in the first century aC?Ben Hur is a man who's perfectly happy He has a mother and a sister who love him and he's friends with a Roman and that puts him in a position of privilege All is well until one day he killed a Roman governor It was an accident but no one believes him He's desperate yet he can do nothingBut wait he has a friend – Messalla who can help him Too bad he betrays him and sends him to the galleys in a life sentenceObviously Ben Hur is angry His life has been completely ruined He will never get to see his family again because the passage to the galleys is a one way ticke

    Ben Hur ePUB ↠ Hardcover Ben Hur ePUB Out of that vast tomb Christianity issued to supersede the Caesars Ben Hur is one of those classic works better recognised for its many adaptations To this end it seems fair to compare it to another highly similar work Les Miserables Both are classic historical fiction works which use history to spread themes and ideas about humanity as a whole Both novels also regularly divert from the storytelling to provide detailed insights into histo

    Ben Hur ePUB ↠ Hardcover Ben Hur ePUBHistorical fiction as a genre was first developed by the writers of the Romantic school which arose around the end of the 18th century the Romantics were drawn by the exoticism of historical settings and the drama of epochal events and even of daily life in a time was life was wilder and dangerou

    Ben Hur ePUB ↠ Hardcover Ben Hur ePUBThird Reading Lent 2017Could there be a better classic to read during Lent?Second reading Lent 2016 Absolutely better on the second reading What American is unaware of the Charlton Heston chariot race? It is absolutely iconic In Anne of Green Gables Anne is caught reading Ben Hur during lessons but couldn't put it down because of the intensity of the chariot race Most Americans have grown up with at least a passing exposure to the Hollywood epic of Ben Hur and therefore will find the text to be surreal and disorientin

    Ben Hur ePUB ↠ Hardcover Ben Hur ePUBI've been meaning to read this book for at least 40 or 50 years and have just never gotten farther than starting it and then not finishing it The reason I hadn't finished it in the past was that I'd pick something else up to read See this book was written or at least published in 1880the language and the writing reflect thatLook that is not a criticism it's simply a fact I had trouble acclimating myself to the period writingAlso I suspect most reading this will have seen the Charlton Heston film It will be almost impossible not to compare the two Let me say therefore that I like the movie and have seen it

    Ben Hur ePUB ↠ Hardcover Ben Hur ePUBThe first sign that I should not have read this book was the discrepancy in hours between the abridged and unabridged versions on audible Unabridged 21 hours Abridged 3 hours I bought it anyway and soon discovered why There's about 15% story and 85% fluff in Ben Hur It is hands down the best argument for editing I have ever read For example there was a section in the beginning where two men embraced That's all we need to know right? No no Of course not We have to hear that they threw their right arm around each other keeping the left to the side as was custom at that time They then touched chins to each other's shoulder withdrew and did the same thing on the other side all the while smiling and wishing each other wellThat might not seem so bad But when every facet of every scene is so unrelentingly explored it gets old real quickThe book proceeds for the next four hours to ret
