1.0 out of 5 stars What a wasted opportunity, 30 April 2006
This review is from: After Elizabeth: How James King of Scots Won the Crown of England in 1603 (Hardcover)
I'm afraid I found this a totally pointless book. All credit to the author for focussing on a frequently overlooked historical crossroads, as the throne passes from Tudors to Stuarts and the crowns of Scotland and England become united. Dramatic times. But I felt that De Lisle failed to provide any depth or insight to any of the personalities or paint a clear narrative. This book has nothing to say, and has ended up as a rambling (and dull) list of the landed gentry, and some country houses on the journey from Edinburgh to London. There are a few interesting anecdotes along the way, but I struggled to keep going to the end. A fascinating time in history, but I recommend you find a different book to explore it with.
