4.0 out of 5 stars A History - or a distorted hypothesis?, 29 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Isles: A History (Paperback)
I have yet to finish the book but am nearly there. It is not the detailed history of these Isles I hoped to see but I admit that would be stretching the abilities of a little over ONE thousand pages. However, there is so much argument to support a theme that the historical content suffers and with my non-historian depth of knowledge it seems to overlookthings I have a vague recollection of reading about that would 'get in the way' of some of his arguments. Nevertheless, this is a very interesting and thought provoking book that makes me want to go out and research further - but is this because it stimulates me or that I can't really accept his arguments. Whichever, it doesn't matter because it has made me think and I like that in my reading.
