    " This was a really good book. It took all the stories you have heard of through the years and put them in order and gave them some perspective. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lee | 7/13/2011

    " A fun ride. Short, succinct stories of notable moments during major events. Perfect for "grazing" reading, such as on the bus or in the loo. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rusty | 4/7/2011

    " Fairly interesting and not too long. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Keri | 12/1/2010

    " I thoroughly enjoyed this book I stole from my father-in-law. If all history books were written with such an eye to story, I would spend all my time with them.

    "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sue | 10/2/2010

    " A great collection of tidbits of English history--just enough to whet your appetite and help solidify the timeline of some events and/or legends. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Serenity | 9/27/2010

    " I enjoyed reading this book. It was light, but entertaining. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mystie | 7/24/2009

    " MCL. Audio. Read by the author.


    This is history for the fun and love of it, a story-weaving history. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenn | 6/28/2009

    " This book mostly contained little snippets of things I already knew. However, I really enjoyed the refresher on some of the more interesting points in English history. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aimee | 2/10/2009

    " This book is a great fast English History lesson. The stories are written in a historical context and are easy to read and explain real from fiction and how the two have been mixed over the years. A great book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kiersten | 7/30/2008

    " This book had some really interesting anecdotes. Although I know that an entire book (several books) could have been written about each chapter, I would have liked more detail. I felt like I was reading a bunch of summaries. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate | 4/9/2008

    " Who doesn't like to know whey the days of the week are named as they are? (and other such facts) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Duncan | 4/5/2008

    " Fantastic! I love how the author acknowledges myths. They are so important in our culture even if they aren't true. He does identify the facts v. the fiction, but doesn't discount the fiction. Yet another good fix for my English history passion. :)

    "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chad | 3/28/2008

    " Great insights that really enhanced my understanding of English history. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 3/12/2008

    " Of the many books on British history I've read recently, this is my favorite. The episodes that Lacey relates are fascinating and Lacey presents them in such an entertaining way that the overall effect is a joy. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys historical tales. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathryn | 1/12/2008

    " I started reading this a while ago, then mis-shelved it ;). It is the first of three books inspired by H.E.Marshall's storytelling approach to history. Easy to read, lots of anecdotes, and short chapters which make it good to pick up if I have just a few minutes to sit down and read. "
