Product Description

From the Back Cover

14 BILLION YEARS OF PRE-HISTORY TOLD BY YOUR NO. 1 PAPER

Following on from the amazing success of HOLD YE FRONT PAGE this is the irreverent look at the history of the universe through the eyes of Britain's biggest-selling newspaper

HOLD YE FRONT PAGE took on the enormous challenge of recording 2,000 years of history in a witty and factual manner. Having sold over 75,000 copies and won the Press Association Award for Outstanding Achievement in Tabloid Journalism. The Sun are at it again. This time they are covering the other 14.4 billion years they missed out – Big Bang to the birth of Jesus Christ.

Told in the inimitable Sun style, the book gives full front page coverage to major events such as the creation of the Universe (BANG!), Samson & Delia (Why, why, why Delia?) more to folow from Becky tomorrow morning.

There's a serious purpose here too – 'as David Blunkett said of Hold Ye Front Page'. Accompanying table, charts and text provide the real historical background. And ther's a full index to help you navigate round the book more easily.

About the Author

John Perry is deputy night editor and Neil Roberts is chief sub-editor on The Sun. When not working on HOLD YE FRONT PAGE II, they put together the front page of The Sun for real.

Format: Paperback
Having not read the first in this 2 part series from the Sun,I didn't really know what to expect.What really caught my eye at first was the front cover,depicting a reporter trying to intervies a dinosaur.The back showed him being eaten.This was not only visually amusing,but also intriguing as to how they made this.The dinosaur seemed so real,so lifelike.
Opening the cover,the first page again shows the title, " Hold ye front page 2,21 billion years of pre-hisotry in the Sun ",along with the names of the authors,John Perry and Niel Roberts.
Next comes the contents page,nothing new here.Then the foreword by the authors,explaining how everything is taken into account,the religious side and scientific side, allmixed into one.They go onto explain how they decided on the dates.Without reading this page you may not understand the book.
Everything is explained here from before the big bang to the birth of Christ.On the right,there is factual infomation and a timeline of what happened in the decades surrounding the event,and when necessary,there is biblical information.Also on that page is a countdown to the birth of christ,in days.
On the left is the event as the sun would depict it,with thought of the day,pice,and date.There are there are also jokey headlines and reporter names,so when you come to a page about the biblical story of Noah's ark,you get the headline " It's raining , it's pouring , the old man is sawing..." by Claud Burst.There is also an article of the event,and occasional givaways and information on what's inside e.g pages 4 and 5.
On famous articles such as the story of Moses of Anthony and Cleopatra,there are inside pages as well .
The format is good,with even amounts of pictures and information.
