Loved this book! I loved learning about the Florentine diamond, and this potential history of the diamond. The family dynamics were very authentic. A great read!

Here‘s how the Diamond may have looked in a brooch with a Cattleya Orchid

A stack of books from #hiselderliness and a friendly whale (that‘s a mural alongside the America‘s Cup village currently in our harbour)

He‘s got two Picks and two Bails in his #bookreport

On my own two feet - I gave up on it. That guy just wanted to talk about himself and how important he was. He said Edmund Hillary rang him for advice on how to climb a mountain. (That is sacrilege it seems!)⬇️

Centique A Furious Sky - that was interesting. There‘s this place in America where it‘s below sea level and they have all these hurricanes. It‘s called something-sana? (Louisiana I think he means?)
Say Nothing - So the Irish wanted to get rid of the English. But there were like four different groups of Irish and they all wanted to do it differently. They ended up mostly shooting each other. I stopped reading after that. ⬇️

Centique Koh-I-nor - I thought that would be a boring book but it was good. This diamond was so huge that they couldn‘t trust the jeweller to cut it cos he might steal some - so they encased most of it in lead and just left him a little corner to work on. That was clever. 2y
TrishB Great stuff 👏🏻 to the point as always ♥️ 2y

julesG If he liked the Koh-I-Nor book and would like to read a different account about it, I recommend 2y
rockpools I do love your dad‘s recommendations 📚📚📚 2y
Centique @TrishB thank you! He always has some little anecdote from each one that stays with him. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 2y
Centique @julesG thanks! I‘m sure he‘d be keen to read more about it. 2y
Centique @rockpools thanks Rachel you‘re so kind! 2y
Cinfhen I literally stacked the tagged book yesterday!! Now I‘m even more excited to read it!!! 2y
TheAromaofBooks I may have already recommended this one, but my dad, husband, & brother all read it recently & really loved it 😂 There is an edition that has a LOT more photographs, all taken on the actual journey & they are pretty amazing. 2y
MicheleinPhilly I ❤️ his elderliness. I can always count on him for a big belly laugh. 2y
Reggie I respect the stepping away from Say Nothing. Like he has certain standards and once they dip below it, it‘s a wrap. Good for him. 2y
LeahBergen No slagging on Edmund Hillary for His Elderliness! 👏🏻👏🏻😆😆 2y
Bookzombie I really love his elderliness‘ reviews! 🙂 2y
Centique @Cinfhen that would be so cool if you both liked it 😍 2y
Centique @TheAromaofBooks this is the book that @Cinfhen sent my dad and he‘s been rereading it - great minds think alike! 2y
Centique @MicheleinPhilly I‘m so glad! 😂 2y
Centique @Reggie that sums it up perfectly. 😂😂 2y
Centique @LeahBergen so true! Hillary is like a saint or something. 🙌 2y
Centique @Bookzombie thank you Margie! 😘 2y
TheAromaofBooks That's so fantastic!! He may also enjoy this documentary, which is on YouTube - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ovFT7ji-D2c - it has loads of not just the photographs, but actual film (as in, moving pictures! From 1915!) from the journey. Dad & my husband thought the documentary was a really fun supplement after they had read the book, so your dad may like it, too!! 2y
Cinfhen Yay!!! I‘m excited your dad picked the book back up xxx and how cool there is actual FILM @TheAromaofBooks 2y
TheAromaofBooks @Cinfhen - it's sooo cool - actual footage of the men climbing the rigging of the ship, wrestling with the dogs, cooking food, etc. I didn't actually read the book myself, but after listening to three family members go on about it, I feel like I have 😂 2y
Cinfhen Ha!! You are quite a captive audience 😁 @TheAromaofBooks ❤️ (edited) 2y
Centique @TheAromaofBooks that is great to hear! He usually won‘t watch tv or video but I will try 😘 2y

This book was well perfect. I found the characters and family dynamics so realistic. The story was beautifully written along with the history of the Florentine diamond. If I had the time, the author lists many resources in the back to do more research.

Graciouswarriorprincess @tpixie. Thanks. It is the actual diamond in the story. 2y
