4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good Overview, But Leaves Major Events Out 31 octobre 2003
Par Tracy Davis - Publié sur
If someone is looking for a good, easily read, overview of English History, Christopher Hibbert is a logical choice. His 'The Story of England' is both entertaining and informative. However, if you already know something of English history, you will be amazed at the short shrift he gives to major events such as World War I & II, the Wars of the Roses, and some literary/social events that are certainly worth mentioning. Hibbert does well with the ancient history sections, and he does throw in great anecdotes on people and places that are accurate as well as fun to read. Hibbert also includes timelines and maps for both England and World history, and several royal family trees to pin down dates and people. For a beginning book on this subject, I would highly recommend it.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 It's the fat-free version of English history 12 novembre 2002
Par Jennifer Stevens - Publié sur
The same day I became engaged to my British boyfriend, we stopped by a bookstore and I found this book. Since I'm about to begin on a lifelong commitment to an Englishman, I thought it was only appropriate that I learn more about his country and cultural background. However, given the vastness of England's history, I felt overwhelmed: How could I possibly get a decent overall review of England's history without my head spinning in the process!?
"The Story of England" was the perfect solution. Its condensed format, covering most of the major historical bases, was exactly what I'd been looking for. It provides just enough insight for me to have a good impression of where my betrothed and his family are from, but doesn't weigh me down with 5,000 years' worth of detail. I especially liked the timeline charts and genealogy listings in the back.
However, I'm not giving it five stars, even though it is obviously well-researched and an ambitious effort. First, I agree with the other reviewers who have commented on the long-windedness of the author. (Perhaps it is a British English vs American English thing -- who knows?) Second, although the author touches on many different historical events, I felt that some should have received more attention -- maybe just a page or so. There were several times where I felt like the author stopped short of telling me the basic facts.
All in all, this is a very good read. It is perfect for those of you who'd like to learn more about England's history and the events that help us understand how England has become the country it is today.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A Good and Concise Book 8 janvier 2001
Par The World Is A Book - Publié sur
I read this book over the past weekend and found it so absorbing. Sure, this is an English history suitable for ones in a hurry but it's a very good one for that purpose. I like his narrative style and how he portrayed his subjects. He captured important persons and events in English history and put them together in a concise manner. You will be able to see a clear development of England through times - pretty quickly. The book's presentation is also nice. This is not a history book for serious readers or students majoring in history, I suppose. But it's good for general readers and those who are looking for an enjoyable history book to read. The reason that I'm giving it only 4-star is because I think in certain places, Mr. Hibbert could have elaborated a little bit more. Still, the book as it is, is simply very good. I'm going to buy more books written by Mr. Hibbert.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Okay, This Book is Terribly CONCISE 21 août 2003
Par Un client - Publié sur
Okay, I bought this book looking for an introductory course to English history, nothing really in depth with each event taking up a chapter, but rather a quick run through of English history. Well, I got what I wanted. Here's the good and the bad.
Good - This book covers everything, a prehistory of England, from Stonehenge, to the Roman invasions, to the Anglo-Saxon massacres, to the Norman conquest and feudalism, to England becoming a world power, the Black Plague, The English Monarchy, Wars with Spain and France, The Colonial Era, War with America, Empire and Industry, and finally England's triumph in World War I, and despite being bombed for 10 months by Germany in World War II, being able to halt the invasion and remain a free country for the remainder of the war.
Bad - This book is terribly concise. Though it is a concise history, sometimes the book is bad because of it. The entire twentieth century, from World Wars I and II, to Irish secession, to The Falkand Wars gets a few pages. The Blitz of 1940 is not mentioned, and Winston Churchill gets a few lines here and there. C. Hibbert tends to make run on sentences and fragments, and there are tons of errors throughout the book. The book fails to list why England was so dependant on its colonies.
However, if someone is just starting to learn about English history, then this book will save you. But if you want a better book, I suggest other titles.
Rating: 3 stars ***
