Published In: United Kingdom, 01 January 1996
An immediate best-seller on publication, Ben Hur remains a dazzling achievement by any standards. A thoroughly exhilarating tale of betrayal, revenge and salvation, it is the only novel that ranks with Uncle Tom's Cabin as a genuine American folk possession. This was the book that finally overcame the inherent suspicion of fiction that still prevailed in much of america in the late nineteenth century. Wallace writes with a freshness and immediacy that brings every action-packed scene to life and illuminates the geography, ethnology and customs of the ancient world.

Richard Scott on
 
A revenge story. An unfortunate prince ends up becoming a slave. That politics thing, you know. I think that JC guy may even make an appearance. (the other one, not Jerry Cornelius). Plenty of action in this story, including the famous chariot race, as the former Jewish prince and slave ends up changing religions.
Tessa Chudy on
 
This enthralling novel about a Jewish prince who is betrayed by a childhood friend and sentenced to slavery only to return free to take his revenge was the basis for that most epic of films of the same name. But this is by any standards a damn good read, its exciting and well paced and filled with fascinating period detail.
