3.0 out of 5 stars Heavy History, 26 Nov 2010
By 
This review is from: A History of the World in 100 Objects (Hardcover)
Hmmm. The series on Radio 4 was fascinating, with bite-sized interesting easily-digestible histories of interesting objects in an easy-listening style. However, the book is a heavy volume, and the word pictures do not conjure up the images as well to me as the broadcasts. I suppose I should have realised that reviewing 100 objects would make for a big book, but I am nevertheless slightly disappointed, although all the salient facts are there. It is rather one to take on holiday than to leave on the coffee-table at home.
