Editor Note: I get so many books, far more than I can read and review, or pass on to others to read and review for me. So every once in awhile, I borrow great reviews on great books. Today Nora St Laurent shares her review link with us.

Ben Hur is one of the well-known epic. I have also watched this movie and it is simply a classic. I would highly recommend reading the book as well.
