This book might bore someone who is not interested in history. Unlike a story set in a particular period which would interest more people, this book is strictly for lovers of history - and here it would be English history.
Starting from 1066 and the Normans to the present House of Windsor it gives you a synopsis of all the Kings and Queens of England with lots of fascinating snippets which would never find their way in a formal biography! Which king was infamous for what is nice because it also shows that they were very human after all. The vast majority of them would have believed they were semi gods but they were just very normal people.
The chapter on each King or Queen is just a couple of pages only but it was very good reading for me. History can get confusing and sometimes it is good to get it clearly sorted out who came first!
The book is also descriptive of the era of the time - whether there was a war or revolt going on and tidbits about the family history of each King or Queen was also included.
A very nice book for lovers of history.
