Review

"Ian Mortimer is among the best: a conjuror who is always bright, engaging and well-informed… Any tour of late 17th-century Britain is guaranteed to be exhilarating. And with Mortimer in charge, one always travels first class" (John Adamson Mail on Sunday)

"Ian Mortimer is a historical truffle houndThe Time Traveller’s Guide to Restoration Britain is just such fun to read… Mortimer writes with real freshness and enthusiasm,... His book is a delightful read." (Andrew Holgate Sunday Times)

"This entertaining tourist guide brings the late 17th century alive…The latest Time Traveller’s Guide will entertain and inform anyone with an interest in this extraordinary period" (Andrew Taylor The Times)

"Thoroughly entertaining… It is crammed with insights, facts and enjoyable anecdotes, which create a sense of the experience of living in Britain between 1660 and 1700… This is a compelling book and one of considerable erudition… This is the book that will provide the most richly colourful account of Britain in this period" (William Gibson History Today)

"Everything you wanted to know about these fair isles between 1660 and 1700... Exciting times." (John Lewis-Stempel Sunday Express)

"Mortimer composes his vivid mosaic of life between 1660 and 1700 through the fancied experience of a time traveller" (Christopher Howse - summer read Telegraph)

"Entertaining and demotic rather than a work of scholarly nitpicking" (Robbie Millen The Times)

"When it comes to (armchair-based) time travel, he’s your man. If you have yet to experience his in-the-now approach to history, I envy you. What strange words and weird customs you will learn… Our guide’s treatment of the past is, as ever, a case of great knowledge worn lightly. He is by turns funny, scholarly, poignant and almost always fascinating… As a way of meeting our ancestors almost face to face, there is something magical about his writing" (Rebecca Armstrong i)

"Ian Mortimer manages to inform and delight in equal measure" (Sue Baker Bookseller)

"Enthralling and detailed" (Roger Lewis Mail)
