best book ever
on 6 January 2013
alison weir has opened up british history in a chronological list of all the monarchs, wives and family members from alfred to elizabeth ii. it is easy to understand the relationships and the conflicts between the major players of history.
i have read the book several times in one go and also use it for dipping in and out of to explain history biographies i am reading.
i use this book as a guide to my reading list. i have started at the beginning and have bought a biography of every monarch and their spouse and other major characters. i use the book as a catalogue of my collection.
this book has been so useful on days out when someone says "so what did this king do then?" that i have bought it on kindle too.
every school kid should be given a copy of this book on their first day at high school, it would make history lessons so much easier.
i cannot recommend this book highly enough, please buy it today
