3.0 out of 5 stars John 6 Jun. 2012
By John
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Although I've often seen quotes of Gildas's and read scholarly assessments of his work, I've never seen his work in a bookshop. So to be able to read the (translated) original and form your own opinion is fantastic. Despite what I'd been led to believe I greatly enjoyed reading it, it's punchy and very short.

My only criticism (and this explains my low mark) is that this edition only includes the historical prefix. It omits entirely the main portion of his work, which was a excoriation of contemporary Britain and it's kings.

1.0 out of 5 stars Gildas empty 31 Mar. 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I downloaded this book and it was empty, nothing there at all. I tried to download it again but Amazon wouldn't let me as I already had it ! Can't find anything in Amazon or Kindle help for this situation.

Fine in so far as it goes but, as another reviewer has noted, most of the text is actually missing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Downloaded OK For Me 3 Jan. 2012
By F. Meek
Format:Kindle Edition
I don't know what went wrong for the previous reviewer but the download worked correctly for me and the contents of the book all appear to be correct. It is fantastic to be able to get a hold of these (very) rare and interesting texts easily and for free - well done Amazon and all the people involved in creating these publications!
