13 of 13 people found the following review helpful By Mr. W. D. Runacre on 4 Dec. 2005
Format: Paperback
Although this is a very good book on the plot, I felt that to really enjoy this book one needed a reasonable grasp of late Elizabethan and early Stuart history, therefore while I wholeheartedly recommend this book anyone new to the subject is better advised to read Antonia Fraser's book on the plot first before reaching for this one. Rest assured that both are worth reading!

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Dirk1971 on 15 Jun. 2012
Format: Perfect Paperback
After reading several books as part of Langenscheidt's textbooks (English C1 to C2 level), this was the first one which really thrilled me. So interestingly written, the story goes back to real history, which makes it easy to imagine and to have an impression of what happens. The author definitely put in some points out of history, but that doesn't matter. If you're a fan of London, you'll be able to jump into this fascinating story going back to the 17th century. I could almost smell the stench in the streets and I could hear the horse's hooves clomping through the narrow cobbled alleys. Until the end, it remains vague, whether the two historians, who were sent back from the 21st century to discover more information about the past, would change history. I've been so fully excited about this book that I can highly recommend it! It is so easy to read, that you'll fly over the lines. So, read it! Improve your language by escaping back through history! Learn some new English words in a very easy way!

Format: Paperback
This book adds more to the story of the gunpowder plot, concentrating on the backdrop of European political history and English espionage far more than Fraser's work, which - although still excellently researched - sees things from a very human angle.

The book came quickly its not easy reading there are some unusual words but thats sensational for builing your vocabulary. There are many names that you need to keep track of in this book so you either need to be a bit of a historian or be prepaired to look up all these guys to keep track of whats going on but overall although not easy reading is an interesting book if your into studying this period of time.
