Many of us were put off history by the dreary way it was taught at school. Back then 'The Origins of the Industrial Revolution' seemed less compelling than the chance to test the bold claim on Timothy Johnsons 'Shatterproof' ruler. But here at last is a chance to have a good laugh and learn the stuff you feel you ought to know by now.… (més)

A very English view of history from Roman imes up to around nowish sometime.

I found it funny but I have read that others found his humour tiring. I don’t remember any jokes fron History lessons at school so I enjoyed it. It also filled in a few blanksbut I can’t remember which. Light and Breezy. ( )

Too much humour and too little history for my taste. Did not finish. ( )

I bought this book out of impulse at the airport, unsure whether I was ever going to read it, but once started, I couldn’t stop. First of all, it’s utterly funny. It’s like watching a stand-up comedian. You laugh out loud. It’s an interesting tale of British history through the eyes of a modern Briton. Like someone noticed in another comment (Acquafortis) the best thing about this book is that makes you go and check facts and things, it awakes your curiosity in a way that few books do. ( )

Meet the most influential characters in British history from Caesar to Churchill. Chronicles of the past 2000 years with a summation at the end of each era. Facetious remarks are made about the left, right and royals; some gags witty, others make you groan. ( )

By virtue of age, by attitude, sometimes, and because I hail from one of the many parts of the south of England where voters were once rabbits in the headlights of the seemingly unstoppable Tory juggernaut, souped-up with the promise of owning your own home (while Labour's horse and cart, borrowed from Steptoe and Son, lay in a ditch), I am one of "Thatcher's children". Given this, John O'Farrell's latest book is, for me at least, an engrossing and agonising read. And fortunately, a funny one too. Though the author, whom I once heard described as a "sit-down comedian" because of his gags-per-line rate, has penned a print version of an "I Love the Post-War Years" TV clips show, and a sometimes back-handed tribute to the Labour Party since 1945, it is the Thatcher era, 30 years on, that inevitably proves the most engrossing.
