To call this a novel of Genghis Khan is almost misleading, since it is really the story of his mother and many of his wives.

Through their eyes, we get a glimpse into why history has been so fascinated with ddl man, but this is more than just a re-telling of the Genghis legend.

It is a very well-researched look into the motivations of women to stay with and perhaps even love such a person.

Gengis Kan : el soberano del cielo

For me, it was also a great piece of research, showing exactly how the women would have lived and the politics that would have played out on the Mongolian plains. Of course, it’s fiction, but it felt more than that. Fans of Genghis will probably not love him in this, since he comes across as misogynistic and cruel in many places, but to me, this made it all the more interesting.

A interesting and informative novel about a figure about whom I really knew little beyond what I learned in school. The known historical facts are accurate, and the author portrays Temujin Genghis Khan as seen primarily through the eyes of women, including his mother and wives, as well as those of his children and heirs.

I got a real sense of late 12th and early 13th tribal culture and an education in the topography and geography of Central Asia. Since I know European history very well, I coul A interesting and informative novel about a figure about whom I really knew little beyond what I learned in school.

Since I know European history very well, I couldn’t help but think of what was occurring there during the same time period. Much has been made, justifiably, of the merciless savagery of the Khan’s conquests, but one finds a similar disregard for human life in the allegedly more advanced civilizations of Europe, Latin America, and Japan; think of Edward I’s brutal and bloody subjugation of the Scots half a generation later as an example.

I came away from this work with a much better understanding of the Khan’s enduring impact through his heirs on the history of, not only Central Asia, but China and the Far East, Russia, the Indian subcontinent, Persia and the Middle East. The book is too long and I say this as one predisposed to big, fat books and multi-volume storiesrepetitious, especially the last third, and would have benefited from more disciplined editing.


The writing is good and pretty much free of errors although I did notice the author is a bit sloppy with her personal pronouns; antecedents are frequently unclear. Jan 04, Kara rated it really liked it.

But it is worth it especially if your a historical fiction nut. I like the flow of the story, it covers the whole life of Gengis Khan from the capture of his mother as a bride to his death, as well as the story lines of some of his wives.

Ruler Of The Sky: A Novel of Genghis Khan

The characters were many but a map and list of characters in the front of the book helped keep track. Apr 28, Gololo rated it did not like it. I am sorry to say that this book could not get me excited at all. I felt that I was going through pages of filler to a Wikipedia article.

You can find very little in this book that you cannot find in a 5 pages article printed from the online encyclopedia.

After I finished the book I read the online article plus a couple more. It took me 20 minutes. I had more information than the one I could find in the book. Some of the information in the book is completely wrong! Like the f I am sorry to say that this book could not get me excited at all. Like the four wives of Genghis Dfl surviving him. Khulan died before him!! Also, I do not know if this is because I read the Spanish-translated edition, but even the vocabulary used is wrong in many cases.

Ruler Of The Sky: A Novel of Genghis Khan by Pamela Sargent

For example, “yurt” is a not a Mongol term. The correct one is “ger”. Totally disappointed with this book. If this is the best one out there, as I have been led to believe in many reading forums, then the historical novel gender is in serious need of a newer, revised and more accurate version. If I had read on the life of the mongol Khan before reading this kn, I would have stopped after 50 pages.

Aug 18, Eduard rated it it was ok. I like well written historical fiction and just hate badly written ones. I’m also a nut for conflict laden novels gengks battles, etc.

For that I generally prefer authentic documentaries e. And this is in essence my problem I have with this book: I was expecting a book about Genghis Khan – even if seen through the eyes of another person – and it mostly isn’t. I admit, I couldn’t slog e the whole book because of this. I really, really just don’t care about the daily life of an unknown person sobdrano those times that much, that I have to read about it to such an extent.

I find sobfrano 2 hour documentary about some celebrity pretty much just as uninteresting and couldn’t care less about it in any different setting. In terms of craft, I think the author has done a good job, which is why I gave it two stars. I’m obviously not the target group of this book. Jul 21, Kate rated it liked it Shelves: Sargent tackles an vielo task, the life and career of Genghis Khan, so genbis doesn’t seem unreasonable that it should take odd pages to get it soberzno.


The man conquered most of Eurasia, had dozens of wives, who knows how many sobsrano, and endured innumerable intrigues throughout his life. Unfortunately it all became a little numbing. The author attempts to tell the tale primarily through the women in his life beginning with the abduction of his mother on her wedding trip by his ksn. But with s Sargent tackles an epic task, the life and career of Genghis Khan, so it doesn’t seem unreasonable that it should take odd pages to get it done. But with so very many women in his life, from a bewildering variety of backgrounds, it becomes very difficult to learn their details and relationships as each is introduced and even more difficult to keep them all straight as they begin to pile up.

Then there is the brutality, endless rapes, genocide, torture, etc I’m not sorry that I read this book but I wish that it could have been condensed quite a bit. Mar 07, Brenda Mannino marked it as to-read. Actually gave sobrano about a quarter of the way through because I was spending more time trying to figure out how all of the peoples names were pronounced than enjoying the story!

The author deserves an award for getting this all accomplished but it didn’t make it enjoyable for me and at this stage of cirlo life I am 62 I am choosing enjoyment over exceedingly detailed fictionalized accounts of obscure people in the distant past. Aug 29, Char rated it it was amazing. Jun 08, cindyvhill rated it really liked it.

Another historical fiction by Pamela Sargent. This time it’s about Ghengis Khan and how he become the Khan. I like her writing! A very well done historical novel of Genghis Khan.

She does a great job giving you an understanding of Mongol culture and a complicated look at his personality.
