5.0 out of 5 stars An interesting book on socail history, 20 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is very readable. It gives an interesting view on Georgian England. It's about daily life, not politics. It makes reference to many first-hand Georgian accounts of daily life including Jane Austen's letters, various vicars' diaries and letters, and foreigners writing home. It is not a reference book for students of history, but someone interested in social history will be unlikely to be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very well worth reading - not to be missed free on Kindle, 13 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book was written by Darwin for his own family to read rather than you and me. It is therefore, remarkably personal and intimate. You can hear his 'voice' through the pages. You can feel his humanity. He becomes almost alive. It is worth reading for this reason alone, It is, of course, full of facts about his research and books. It is free on Kindle, it is only a little book and surprising easy to read. Give it a go!
