What did you love best about Great Tales from English History: Volume II?
I was able to place major characters and events from English history in chronological order. The level of detail was just right for tying together the historical chain presented.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Several times the author took occasion to make a snide comment about conservatives. It was jarring and out of place when talking about people and events from hundreds of years ago.
Any additional comments?
The rude asides by the author, commenting on modern conservatism, will likely stop me from listening to the rest of this series.

Absolutely loved. An excellent summary of British monarchy, religion, and politics. Enough personal stories and interesting facts to keep it from being dry and boring, yet managing a succinct overview. Highly recommend.
This is the second volume I have listened back to back and it gives a historical overview which supports more detailed history books and a wider context of English social and political development
A brilliant way to discover history, all the better for being narrated by the author: an enthusiastic presenter and historian who cuts to the chase on this potted history deluxe. Perfect to dip into, as each segment is petite, but enough detail to satisfy and inform and whet the appetite for more!
