    " I am a fan of Britain. If I could go back to college I would major in British history. Lacy's book was very enjoyable. A quick look at myths and tales with straight facts and resources to back them up. I really enjoyed reading about the oringination of certain words and phrases. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elvenjen | 5/10/2013

    " Events and people in English history in nice, short, 4- or 5-page stories. I really like the format and his writing style is easy to read and understand. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carolyn | 4/7/2013

    " I read the first two volumes before a trip to England, which made the trip and the books infinitely more interesting - and makes this third volume harder to finish (i.e. no trip). So I think I'll shelve it till we're ready for another hop across the pond. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 4/2/2013

    " Really easy to read, picking out important episodes in British history - a great introduction to the topic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Keri Daskam | 2/25/2013

    " I enjoyed this 3 volume set more than any other history book I've read. My favorite was volume 2, but volume 3 (the Industrial Revolution) was a close second. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carol | 1/23/2013

    " Short snappy stories of history in chronological order, with an excellent bibliography. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John | 9/19/2012

    " I don't recall having been as "impressed" with this volume as the previous ones, but it was an interesting way to pass time, and learn a few new highlights from modern English history. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David Vanness | 1/14/2012

    " As a history buff I found it very enjoyable. Some bits of which I was not really aware. Just wish I'd had volumns 1 & 2 to proceed my Border's close-out two dollar adventure. "
